Attraction Details

Ban Wat Chan Pine Forest is quiet and tranquil, set away from Chiang Mai city for 150 kilometers. The two-leaf and three-leaf pine trees here can grow only at the height of 1,000 metres above the sea-level. The pine resin can be used for tempering the string of traditional Thai instrument, Saw. Its sap can be mixed with the paint color for faster drying. To preserve the pine forest, the royal project has supported the villagers to earn their living from chicken farming and thus no longer need to sell the pine sap. This leafy forest will always remain at its utmost fertile as the Mu Se Khi, Karen ethnic groups living here, has the preserving custom. Once a child is born in a family, their umbilical cord will be tied to one of a tree in the forest. Considering each tree their own family member, Mu Se khi will never cut them down. This forest is truly a perfect spot for biking and boating. The weather is cool with the fresh breezy air. Come here to get closer to the well-preserved natural beauty and a chance to experience a slice of Karen’s lifestyle firsthand. Accomodation is available.
