Doi Ang Khang

Doi Ang Khang (ดอยอ่างขาง) or just Angkhang is a mountain resort at the northwestern tip of Chiang Mai Province, Northern Thailand.

Understand

Doi Ang Khang is about 40 km due west of Fang. It takes about 1 hr to drive there. The area has a cool climate all year round, particularly from Dec-Jan, when much of the area is frosty. During that period, visitors should be prepared to cope with relatively cold weather.

Get in

If coming by car on the Chiang Mai-Fang road (Hwy 107), turn left at an intersection around km137 (at Mae Kha Market) and proceed to Doi Ang Khang for another 25 km. It is a steep zigzagging asphalt road. Vehicles should be roadworthy and drivers experienced.

It's possible to take a songthaew from Mae Kha to Doi Ang Khang, but departures are irregular and you'll probably need to charter it.
