Doi Mon Kluy
connected to Tambon Mae Wa Luang and Tambon Tha Song Yang, the name “Mon Khlui” is from “Khlui Khlo” in Pakayor language which means a mountain that is covered by natural grassland. The geographical characteristic of Doi Mon Khlui is a grassland on the top of mountain alternating with dwarf forest. Because of the open area and altitude of 1,100 metres above mean sea level, Doi Mon Khlui has become the beautiful sight-seeing point for a sea of mist, sunrise, and sunset. The sea of mist at Doi Mon Khlui is uniquely beautiful because the sea of mist in the east is caused by the Ngao River which separates Amphoe Tha Song Yang and Amphoe Omkoi of Chiang Mai province. The sea of mist in the west is caused by the Moei River which separates the Kingdom of Thailand and the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. In addition, there is north wind that brings the mist to re?ect the morning light and makes this grassland mountain “Doi Mon Khlui” to be attractive. Nowadays, the route to Mon Khlui is a non-asphalt road that is separated from Highway No. 105, at the Kilometres 158+100th marker. The non-asphalt road is 7.5 kilometres. Two-wheel drive pick-ups are able to be used.
