Share our Experience of Birding and Photography

Doi Ang Khang


Doi Ang Khang , like Doi Lang , is also close to the border with Myanmar and has a similar range of birds. However, it differs in that the area is populated whereas the top of Doi Lang is not. The good side of this is that there is accommodation at the top of the mountain which saves in traveling time each day, the bad side is that the roads are busy and less pleasant for bird watching. It also means there is more cultivation and less good forest. The reason we visit Doi Ang Khang is principally for the birding at the resort we stay at. The owner puts out food for the birds and he also has a small waterfall and stream in the grounds which attracts more birds.

We usually stay for two nights which allows us to see everything at the resort and have a look around the mountain top too.

There are a couple of other minor stake-outs in the area but most birding is done along the roads and trails. Mrs Hume's Pheasant is sometimes seen crossing the road in an area of pines. Giant Nuthatch has been seen many times and Purple Cochoa is also known from the mountain.
