Nan province is literally a rolling hills after hills of high and rugged ranges that are on the same geographic plate with Laos' Xayaboury province. There are many interesting places where tourists can easily spend several days without getting bored. However please take note distances are far from one to another on the curvy mountain roads.

We spent just two nights in Doi Phu Kha national park Each day we took one day-return trek and stayed in a comfortable and cosy bungalow. We would say that is quite a short time for such a large province even for an introductory trip.

Leeches are almost everywhere and you need preparation for it. You can buy leech socks at the park. There are lot of mountains that you can go up with a ranger; white water rafting is also possible in the eastern part of the park. Caving and waterfall trek are also available here. Chompu Phu Kha flower is a famous species in the park.

There are some bungalows in the park that you can book online or at the royal forest department in Bangkok. Remember the park is quite large and moving around needs some sort of transport.
