Doi Inthanon 'snow' turns out to be frost

Chiang Mai's Doi Inthanon National Park yesterday explained that the pictures of something that looked like snow in the park area, which were circulating in the social media, were taken last Wednesday when the temperature was minus 5 degrees Celsius and it was just a large amount of frost - not snow as some had speculated.

The park's assistant chief Wutthipong Wongkhamfoo said the park's temperature now was between 2-3 degrees Celsius, which was warmer than the past few days. However many tourists continued to visit the park to enjoy the chilly weather and beautiful wild Himalayan cherry blossom. There were 4,000 visitors on Saturday alone.
