Doi Luang Chiang Dao is a limestone mountain in the Chiang Dao Wildlife Reserve area, Amphoe Chiang Dao. This cone-shaped mountain is 2,195 metres from sea level, which makes it the third highest mountain in Thailand after Doi Inthanon and Doi Pha Hom Pok.  
 
Narrow plains on top of the mountain overlook spectacular views that include a sea of fog on the Amphoe Chiang Dao side, Doi Sam Phi Nong, the Chiang Dao mountain range, and the far end of Doi Inthanon.  The peak is cool and windy.
 
It is full of rare highland flowers, birds, and butterflies.  Visiting Doi Chiang Dao needs an approval letter from the Director of Wildlife Reserve Division, Royal Forest Department.  Travel must be arranged at least 2 weeks in advance. Contact tel. 0 2561 2947 for more information.
 
How to get there: The peak is accessible on foot. At Chiang Dao cave, guides, porters, and chartered transfers to the starting point of the trail are available.  Rented local truck costs around 900 baht and, a porter is 300 baht per person.  There are no tourist facilities on Chiang Dao Mountain. Visitors must bring their own sleeping bags, food, and water. 
 
Descending the mountain is possible on the trail near Ban Tham, which is located near Chiang Dao cave. The trail is rather steep; nevertheless, it could shorten the walking distance upon descending. It is quite difficult to climb up.
