Thailand Regions - Chiang Mai Elephants The lower North consists of wide plains while the upper north is mountainous. The great mountains along the borders of Laos and Myanmar produce breathtaking scenery, waterfalls and fast rivers, home to many ethnic hilltribes and perfect for adventurous tours, trekkings and rafting. The region enjoys three seasons: hot from March to May, wet from June to November, and cool from December to February. Up in the mountains “cool” can be extremely cold, around the freezing point at night. The nomadic hilltribes have been a law unto themselves, wandering back and forth across borders. Nowadays they are mostly settled in villages across the northern mountains. Most travellers head for Chiang Mai, the northern capital, as a base for visiting ethnic tribes, for soft adventure and for shopping. The lure of rafting, trekking and tribal villages is strong in Chiang Rai, Mae Hong Son and the adventure village of Pai. To the south, the wonderful Historical Park at Sukhothai is a must-see for travellers who want to discover more about the history and culture of Thailand.
