Site description The IBA comprises Mae Jarim proposed national park, which is adjacent to the international border with Lao P.D.R. and adjoins Doi Phu Kha National Park (IBA TH011) to the north and Sri Nan proposed national park (IBA TH008) to the south. The topography of the site is characterised by rolling hills. Higher elevations support hill evergreen forest, which covers c.35% of the total area, while lower slopes support deciduous dipterocarp forest and mixed deciduous forest, which cover c.61% of the site. In addition, some coniferous forest occurs along drier ridges. Several rivers and major streams originate within the site.
