Royal Agricultural Station Angkhang

The Royal Agricultural Station Angkhang is the project from the idea of His Majesty the King Bhumibol Adulyadej in order to support agriculture instead of opium planting. The project began when His Majesty the King Bhumibol Adulyadej traveled by a helicopter and passed this mountain peak. He saw a village and then made a visit. He saw opium fields, and a village of Muser tribesmen who at that time plaited side braid hair, wore black clothes, and carried sword on their shoulders. His Majesty the King planned to change the opium field into agricultural field. The Station therefore was found in 1969.
