Temperature drops at Doi Inthanon, rewardarding tourists who woke up early
The temperature on Thailand’s highest mountain, Doi Inthanon, saw a plunge in mercury to 6 degrees Celsius on Friday morning, much to the delight of visitors who woke up early to see the magnificent sunrise.
According to National Park chief Rung Hiranwong, it was the first time since summer that the temperature on Thailand’s highest mountain had plunged that low. “Cold weather”, he said, “had arrived in the North much sooner than usual this year.”
Rung said that on the Kiew Mae Pan viewpoint where the recorded temperature was 9C, a sea of clouds descended.
The National Park chief also said that tourists had started arriving, with many visiting Ban Mae Klang Luang village where paddy fields were a rich green. The maple forest are also changing color indicating that winter is coming.
Average temperature at the Royal Agriculture station Inthanon, however, was about 14 Celsius.
