“His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej solved this problem by forming a group of villagers.”

Pang Oung is located in Ban Ruam Thai, Mae Hong Son. Due to its splendid scenery, this place is known as Switzerland of Thailand. Along the bank of Huai Pang tong Reservoir stand coniferous forests formed by Khasi pine and Sumatran pine which are fully covered by enormous  evergreen forest and mountains. The word ‘Pang’ in northern Thai dialect means a shelter in which woodsmen stay and the word ‘Oung’ means a wetland.

Formerly, Pang Oung used to be an illegal opium planting area for hill tribes and was always trespassed by smugglers. His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej solved this problem by forming a group of villagers, supporting their agricultural economics, conserving natural resources, and building a reservoir in Pang Oung. Nowadays, there are many different types of economical plants being grown by hill tribes, such as avocado, persimmon, Chinese pear and Chinese bayberry. Due to its cool climate, the village is normally decorated with rose, hydrangea, and orange trumpet. Not only focusing on agricultures, but also on conserving endangered animals such as Laew small green frog. Consequently, Pang Oung is definitely an interesting place for nature-lovers.
