The Khun Than mountain range of the Doi Khun Than National Park forms a natural boundary between the northern Lamphun and Lampang provinces. Within the park is the longest rail tunnel in the country, 1.35 kilometers long, taking 5 minutes to traverse. Virgin jungles and pine forests fill the park, and a beautiful view awaits visitors at the end of a hike up the summit of the mountain.
To get there, take Highway 11 Lampang – Lamphun route until Km. 47. Turn at the fork and travel for 18 kilometers. Please be advised that the road is too steep for buses to pass through.
Admission is 100 baht for adults and 50 baht for children. The park is open daily from 6.00 am-6.00 pm. For more information, head to the park office at Mu 8 Tambon Tha Pladuk, Amphoe Mae Tha, Lamphun 51140, visit the website at www.dnp.go.th or call 0 5354 6335.
