The Mae Wa National Park ( Thai : อุทยานแห่งชาติ แม่ วะ ) is a national park in Thailand . It is located in the northwest region of the country.


The Mae Wa was declared a national park on November 17, 2000.



Mae Wa National Park is located in the provinces of Lampang and Tak . It includes parts of the districts ( Amphoe ) Mae Phrik , Thoen and Sam Ngao and Ban Tak .

The total area of ​​the national park is 587 km².


The area of ​​the national park has a complicated topographical structure, due to the high and rugged mountain landscape in the north, a mountain range with endless plains in the middle and south of the park and a sandstone mountain in the west. The height differences in the mountain range are between 300 m and 1027 m.

The landscape has extensive pine forests, which not only show numerous plant and animal species, but also natural beauties.


As in almost all other parts of the country, there are three seasons here: the rainy, winter and summer seasons. Depending on the altitude, different temperatures can settle here. The rainy season runs from May to September. Summer starts in February and ends in May.
