The name means “City of Stars”, its earlier name Piang Dao meant “at the level of the stars”. The high altitude and clear skies is probably the reason for such a beautiful description. The limestone peaks reach a height of 2,186 m (7,174 ft) make Chiang Dao an impressive area and stand true to its name.
