King Bhumibol (Rama IX) initiated drastic reforms in the region to put an end to it. It was the beginning of Golden Triangle the Royal Projects.

These projects were highly profitable to the whole region, including the ethnic communities who literally were slaves of the drug barons, while being addicted to opium. The Royal Projects were actually articulated around 3 main axes, in accordance with the King's philosophy of self-sufficiency: 1. 

Get Opium out of Thailand 2. Get villagers free from opium 3. Handle the forest ecologically These days Doi Inthanon is a massive, superb national park, full of majestic waterfalls, lush green valleys, terraced paddy fields, and fruit, flower and vegetable crops.
