The route 1001, 1323/4046, 4031, 1150, 118

Total distance 308 km

I headed out along the 1001 enjoying a gentle ride
Image
At the turn for the Mae Ngat dam I noticed that this road which has always been the 1323 has been renumbered the 4046 although it still shows as the 1323 on my gps map

Image
The water level is higher than I can remember for a few years
Image

Image

Image

Image
Its back to the 1001 for a few km then a right onto the 4031 to view the other side of the Mae Kuang reservoir
Image
Another one thats at its highest for a few years, was there exceptionally heavy rainfall in the area this year?
Image

Image

Image
Time to head back to the 1001
Image
Halfway to Phrao and I notice the water is higher by the road, my gps tells me that this is part of the Mae Ngat reservoir, if it was at full capacity I think the water level wouldnt be far below the road along here
Image
I ride to Phrao then take a right onto the brilliant 1150 and its only a couple of km before its up in the scenic hills
Image
The bends start straight away
Image

Image

Image

Image
Bends like this along the way make it a real pleasure to ride along here
Image

Image

Image
Shame about the haze thats already here
Image

Image

Image
This is a great bendy bit
Image
On zoom, a very pleasant ride along here as usual, no bad bits and not really any road debris to speak of either. I ride to the end of the 1150 turn right and ride back to CNX along the 118
Image
I try the big breakfast grill at the Euro Diner tonight, tasty, filling and great value at 165 Baht

  1. I dont have any photos of the hostage situation, just a few of us eating dinner

  2. Always a favorite route; but when will you show us the pictures of the hostage situation?
