Optional Chae Son
National Park

Chao Son is 20 minutes from Lampang

1 day to 2 nights here

This is a really nice national park you can go to from Lampang by getting on a shuttle bus on Talad Gao Road.


Now you can just spend the day here and then head back to Lampang.

Alternatively, if you enjoy nature, come here and relax in the National Park for a couple of nights.

Then head back to Lampang on the same bus.

If you're driving

Take Route 1039 from the northwest end of the town. Once on the outskirts of the city, a sign on Route 1157 directs you to Mueang Pan. Drive 60 km until you see a sign pointing left to "Chae Son National Park" on Route 1252. Continue driving for around 10 kilometres until you see a much bigger sign pointing left. Drive another 5 km, and you will arrive.

Chae Son National Park is a protected area located in the Lampang Province of Thailand. The park is known for its scenic hot springs, waterfalls, and caves, as well as its diverse flora and fauna, including species of birds and bats. Visitors can enjoy hiking and trekking in the park, as well as swimming in the hot springs and exploring the caves
