Geography

Natural forest is sheltered by several high mountains that separate civilization from outside. Most areas are complex mountain ranges and likely still pristine virgin forest. The tallest point is Mae Ya in the Pai District in the province's northeast, at 2005 meters above sea level.

About 95% of the overall spaces of Mae Hong Son are high mountains average 300 meters and consists of 3 main rivers which are Salawin, Pai and Yuam. Mae Hong Son is approximately 924 kilometres from Bangkok and can be reached from Chiang Mai.

Today It is no surprise to see that the small town Mae Hong Son has a strong Burmese influence, which can be seen in the temples and other buildings. The temples and houses are built in the typical Shan or Tai Yai style, the shops are small and offer many handicrafts, one can only find here.

Until a few years ago before tourism started to increase considerably this town was well hidden between the surrounding mountains without much influences from outside. Development has been slow though there is still no cinema and only one big supermarket exists in town.
