On the 19st and 20st we hired a guide from “Nature Trails” (Rachen Charoennugul) especially to go to the Den Ya Kat substation (DYK) at about 1100 m asl (Doi Chiang Dao itself is the third highest mountain of Thailand, 2175 m asl). A two hours drive from Malee’s.
Because of heavy rain in the night and early morning we did not went to DYK on the 19-11 but were birding around checkpoint 1 and the road behind this point to the village Muang Khong just till about 900 asl.
