    Highly recommended.
    Beautiful alpine scenery-complete with alpine style house which eventually became the permanent home of Mae-Fah Luang-'Royal Mother from the Sky', (a name given to her by the locals due to her habit of arriving from Bangkok by helicopter), a very remarkable woman who rose from abject poverty to become the mother of two kings of Thailand. (d.1995).
    Being at altitude it is cool and refreshing (verging on cold in the cool season-take a sweater or jacket) after the heat of the plain below.
