Operating day: Daily 
Operating time: 09.00 - 17.00 
 
Doi Ang Khang is on Highway No. 107 (Chiang Mai-Fang). Turn left at an intersection around Km. 137 (at Mae Kha Market) and proceed to Doi Ang Khang for a further distance of 25 kilometres.  It is a steep zigzagging asphalt road.  Therefore, only vehicles in good condition and experienced drivers can make the trip.
 
The local truck (Song Thaeo) from Mae Kha Market offers chartered service to the splendid mountain. The area has a cool climate all year round, particularly from December to January, when much of the area is frosty. During that period, visitors should be prepared to cope with cold weather. Accommodation is available.
 
Attractions on Doi Ang Khang
Ang Khang Royal Agricultural Station is a demonstration site for planting and researching flowering plants, temperate fruit trees, vegetables and other crop under the patronage of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. For more information, visit www.angkhangstation.com
 
Bonsai Garden is located in front of the station.  The garden comprises temperate and winter plants of Thailand and overseas, all of which are decorated, cut and planted with the Bonsai technique. Touring around Bonsai garden, visitors can also see herbal plantations. The best time to visit is from November to January.
 
Mu Ban Khum is a village located near the Royal Agricultural Station. It is a small community comprising people of various races such as Burmese, Hwa, and Thai Yai. They settled in the area and run souvenir shops and restaurants.
 
Kiu Lom Viewpoint is a scenic spot to watch sunrise and sunset including a sea of clouds. It overlooks the delightful ambience of the mountains. On a clear day, the Ang Khang Royal Agricultural Station can be seen from here.
 
Mu Ban No Lae is on the Thai-Burmese border. The people of No Lae migrated from Myanmar about 15 years ago.  They speak their own language and are Buddhists. On every Buddhist day, they stay home to practice the Buddhist precepts.  No Lae village offers a magnificent view of natural scenery of the Thai-Burmese border.
 
Mu Ban Khop Dong is home to Musoes. The tribe believe in ghosts and spirits and still hold on to simple ways of life. The Royal Project has supported this village in promoting agriculture and handicrafts.  The Young Local Guide project is underway to guide visitors on the local lifestyle and beliefs, as well as to create a non-migration awareness in local youths.
 
Mu Ban Luang comprises of Yunnan Chinese who migrated here during World War II. They earn a living from agriculture.
 
Activities on Doi Ang Khang are varied. Presently, Ang Khang Natural Resort offers the following activities:
- Natural Study Trek, a 2-kilometre trek showing small but beautiful waterfalls and Rhododendron.
 
- Mountain biking: Ban Khum
 
- No Lae, Ban Luang-Ban Pha Daeng.
 
- Birdwatching - More than 1,000 species of birds can be seen.  The best spots are Mae Phoe forest station and around Ang Khang Natural Resort.
 
- Mule riding – This is best done by sitting facing sideways because the wide saddle will not allow a horseback-riding style.  Booking must be done at least one day in advance with the resort as mules are normally used to carry agricultural produces.
