Mae Kampong Village

Mae Kampong village

Mae Kampong is a small village about an hour's drive from Chiang Mai near the Chae Son National Park. 

The village has not quite yet made it on to the tourist trail so the village remains tranquil and small.

The village has a little river running through it that winds past a small temple.

Further up the road the river flows over the Mae Kampong waterfall.

Even further up the hill is the beginning of the trail to the Chae Son National Park.

At around 1300m high the trail gives sweeping views accross the valley.

Back down the road there is a café perched on the hillside, looking down over the little village of Mae Kampong.
