Nestled in the Hmong Nong Hoi Village of Mae Raem Subdistrict, Mon Jam is a mountain ridge standing at 1,350 meters above sea level. Nearby, lies the Nong Hoi Royal Project Development Center, established in 1984 with the initiative of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great to promote winter vegetable cultivation and improve the lives of villagers while preserving the environment.
Once a desolate forest known as Kew Sua, Mon Jam was later developed as a tourist destination in late 2009, with its name changed to align with the nearby Mon Long, the highest point in Mae Rim District. Initially, Mon Jam was promoted as an agricultural tourism destination, offering healthy food made from Royal Project sourced ingredients and a picturesque flower bed, a view point for sea of fog, and tent camping options for visitors.
However, with its popularity growing and proximity to Chiang Mai city, Mon Jam saw an increase in restaurants and illegal accommodations. In response, the government, led by the Royal Forest Department, organized Mon Jam in early 2020 with a three-month period for prosecution and demolition of such illegal structures.
Visit Mon Jam for a unique and memorable mountain experience in Chiang Mai.
