This month, those travelling to Nan should not miss the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the Bretschneidera sinensis (chompoo phu kha) flowers at Doi Phu Kha National Park as well as Doi Maneepruek and Khun Sathan National Park.

This kind of trees is very rare. It went extinct from the south of China and the north of Vietnam and was thought to have disappeared in Thailand as well, but was found again almost 30 years ago at Doi Phu Kha in Pua. At Doi Phu Kha, tourists will also be able to see the rare orchid singto Siam (Bulbophyllum siamense Rchb.f.) and kularb phanphi khamkhao (Rhododendron moulmainense) flowers.

Flower lovers should also go camping near a field of pink wild Himalayan cherry flowers near the Khun Sathan Watershed Management Unit.
