Bird Watching

Bird watching and Bird photography at Chiang Dao.

The bird watching area of Chiang Dao was originally popular for bird watching at Wat Tham Pha Plong and the Pha Tung cliff butterfly watching area because it is quiet, has many birds, and is easily accessible. Another place is the Khun Huai Mae Kok Forest Protection Unit, which is called “Den Ya Khat Huai Kha” in the local language. The prominent birds are the Great Hornbill, the Crested Serpent Eagle, and the White-rumped Shama. Currently, Chiang Mai has become more popular due to the trend of the Great Hornbill, a rare bird in Thailand that can be easily found in Chiang Mai. Another place that has gained popularity is Doi Kum Fa because it has a forest and birds similar to Den Ya Khat Huai Kha but is easier to access. It’s more convenient for both travel and use of space.” best spot for Bird watching and Bird Photography trip at Chiang Dao. Recommend two destinations in Chiang Dao.
