Doi Mae Salong (Thai: ดอยแม่สลอง) is a mountain in Thailand, part of the Daen Lao Range. It is in the northern part of Chiang Rai Province six km from the border with Burma.

This mountain rises in Mae Fa Luang District. Its summit is near the town of Santikhiri which is built on the ridge.[3]

This mountain is famous because a Kuomintang military division created a settlement near it in 1961 after having been expelled from Burma.[4]
