We are so lucky to have this National Park on the edge of our city

This mountain gives our city so much:
Not only a nice spot for a picnic or a view of the city, it has some excellent hikes with some great flora and fauna. There’s interesting birdlife- I’ve seen fireback pheasants and lots of racket-tailed drongos-  And there’s interesting plantlife -look for the raffelesia flowers near the enormous fig tree-
It’s better than the zoo.
Not just that, but Doi Suthep also gives us cool, clean air and water. Every evening a cool wind rushes down its slopes and into the city, blowing away some of that ever-present pollution. And; there are numerous streams which flow off its slopes, that fill our dams and fill the moat. All for free!
It is an icon of our city and we should do everything we can to keep it healthy and clean.
