The route 108, 1088, 1192, 1009, 108

Total distance 298 km

It was the 108 straight to Hot and then a couple of kms the other side of Hot I stopped for the first picture

Lots of brown water in the river now

Just before the 1088 turn overlooking the canyon near the Ob Luang National Park

I take a right onto the 1088 and its a very pleasant cool ride along here enjoying grass by the side of the road for a change

Just before Mae Chaem its a right onto the 1192 and another ride along this very twisty road

No doubt in a couple of months time this will all have been burnt

Now that I have been told that this waterfall can be accessed by road I aim to visit it

There is a turn to the left and this takes me to the Mae Pan waterfall, at the car park it says 500 metres, this is a hard 500 metres as its not flat plus in a few places its slippery stones to walk on/climb up, but the pictures made it worthwhile

I guess this is what is seen from the 1092

I ride back and just down the road is the Huay Saai Leung waterfall, its a very short walk to it as well

I ride to the peak of Doi Inthanon and about 1km before I get there the road is blocked off for traffic because of this wash out, only songthaews are going up to the top, apart from motorbikes that is. Its also the brightest part of the day up here, proper blue sky and sunshine compared to the cloudy cool day up until now

At the top

On the way down I stop at Vatchirathan waterfall, a lot of spray coming off of it
