Site description
The site comprises Doi Phu Nang proposed national park, which spans the western and eastern flanks of the Mae Yom river, and is contiguous with three other IBAs: Doi Pha Chang Wildlife Sanctuary (TH013), Wiang Lor Wildlife Sanctuary and adjacent area to the east (TH014) and Mae Yom National Park (TH016). The topography of the site is predominantly hilly, and the vegetation is dominated by mixed deciduous forest and deciduous dipterocarp forest.

Key biodiversity
Doi Phu Nang proposed national park is perhaps the most important site for the conservation of the globally threatened Green Peafowl Pavo muticus in northern Thailand. Of the protected areas situated within the Mae Ping, Mae Yom, Mae Nan and Mae Ang basins, which together support a population of over 200 individuals, Doi Phu Nang is thought to hold the largest number.
