The place is rather quiet and suited for everyone especially those who want to get away from city life with only a short hop and still need convenience for the trip.

Doi Mon Jong
Located in Om Koi, Chiang Mai, the mountain is ranked as one of the top 5 highest mountain of northern Thailand. Doi Mon Jong is home to rare Rhododendron which can only be found here and in Doi Inthanon, and it is also the only place to observe Goral, a very unique and one of the fifteen reserved animals of Thailand.

Apart from a rough road, you need to walk for about 5 kilometers to the top of the mountain and spend a night on a plateau -- making the trip an exciting route for all trekkers.

If you have not decided where to celebrate the coming of New Year wit your special ones, why not consider somewhere peaceful and close to nature like mountains in Chiang Mai.
