I took the 118 out of Chiang Mai until the right for the 1252 for Chae Hom, there is about a 2 km section of the 118 under construction just north of Doi Saket but just a bit dusty thats all

The 118 once you get out of Doi Saket turns into a pleasant road

Now its on the 1252

I cant believe how chilly it is riding up here, at 12.30 I usually expect it to be a lot hotter than this

Its still very green up here

I guess these people had to light the fire to stay warm

There was a small section after about 35 km from highway 118 where there were a few potholes but nothing serious to worry about

As I am getting nearer to Meuang Pan the road really widens out and a very good surface now

I ride virtually into Chae Hom then take the 1335 which I consider the best of the three roads that go to Lampang from here

This is a really good road and hardly any traffic on it at all

Another one of those photos that make you want to ride a particular road. This road joins highway 1 about 23 km north east of Lampang, but I take a back road to Lampang myself, 2 km before highway 1 I turn right signposted to Ban Laeng Dyke, after 300 metres I take a left and follow this to a T junction. Here its another left and after about 500 metres its a right onto a concrete road through some wooden pillars. I just keep on going on this road, there are two more places where a road joins from the right but each time I bear to the left and finally it joins the 1035 at Lampang. I turn left onto it and ride to Hang Chat then its highway 11 back to Chiang Mai

  1. Glad you enjoyed it Dell and thanks for the compliments

  2. Hi Captain,
                  Many thanks for your info. I was looking for a round trip route from CM to include Chae Hom  and the nearby lake but by bicycle. May not take your route exactly as would prefer to avoid Lampang by taking a right turn at Thakok but thanks again for your info and photographs. 
                             Best Regards
