The Mae Klang Waterfall of Doi Inthanon National Park, a popular tourist attraction in Chiang Mai province, has been closed amid heavy downpours and flooding in the area.
Park officials noted that several stores in Chom Thong had sustained major damage as floodwaters inundated the tourist district.
Nicknamed “the roof of Thailand”, Doi Inthanon National Park includes the mountain from which it gets its namesake. Standing at an elevation of 2,565 meters, Doi Inthanon is the highest mountain in Thailand.
Residents in the local Khun Khun Klang village were meanwhile seen moving their possessions to higher positions as runoff threatened to overflow the Mae Klang canal. (NNT)
