a field guide to the planet - by Damon Ramsey
I stayed here in mid 2013.
This is a good base for exploring Doi Inthanon National Park. I think it is the closest accommodation to the national park, it is just outside the lower entrance. The grounds themselves are quite nice, with a small lake at it's centre. I didn't spend much time walking around, but there would've been a few birds around. It was a pleasant nice place to stay.
Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? One of the first expeditions I am booked to work on is the NZ sub-Antarctics with Silversea Expeditions and Australia with Coral Expeditions. And here is a shortened version of one of my lectures in a warmer part of the world.
