The route 201, 2016, 2216, Hwy 12, 2181, 203, 2399, 2115, 2399, 4014, 2154, 201

Total distance 498 km

I took the 201 from Chiang Khan past Loei and as far as Wang Saphung, here it was the 2016 to ride up in the hills

Not far out of Wang Saphung and to my right is this Buddah that I have never noticed before


The haze is really here now


Still hazy even when a lot nearer


The roads getting twisty already


Plenty of fires around now


A fantastic ride along this road whatever bike you ride


This pratt is getting another fire going


This route up through here doesnt get mentioned much which is a shame as its really good plus the scenery is brilliant at the right time of the year


Theres road widening going on at the junction with the 2216, I turn left onto the 2216 and its a dicey surface to start with as theres loose gravel everywhere


Then after a few km its back to a good surface


Plenty of these along here


Then theres this brilliant new surface for a fair way, once the road widening and resurfacing is complete this will be an awesome road

I reach hwy 12 and turn right onto it


This is a good twisty section that is surprisingly pretty much devoid of traffic


A couple of photos from a viewpoint


I take a right onto the 2181 and ride into Lom Sak then take the 203 which is great after a while

More fires along here, the 203 really gets twisty but times getting on and I have a long way to ride so no more photos along here

Past Phu Ruea and its a left onto the 2399 to enjoy this brilliant road again


A road that I will never tire of, I ride to its finish then take the 4014, 2154 and 201 back to Chiang Khan after a much longer ride than I anticipated

Pork and pasta tonight for 150 Baht

  1. Excellent photo report.  Love going up to Chiang Khan and hang out along the Mekong River. A whole different Thailand up there.
