The route 118, 120, Hwy 1, 1021, 1251, 1091

Total distance 302 km

I stopped at Aroon Rai near Thapae gate for breakfast

A Northern pork curry with ginger was enjoyed there

Then it was off up the 118 and a very enjoyable road this is too once past Doi Saket

At Mae Khachan it was a right onto the 120

This is another excellent road thats in perfect condition for its entirety

A new friend, thankfully this one didnt run out in front of me

I stop off for a look at Than Thong waterfall

A nice bit of greenery here, there was a lot more greenery in places along todays ride than I expected to see, it wasnt just fires all the way

Now back to the good bends along here

This picture is actually quite a clear one

At the 120s end I turn left onto hwy 1 for a few km then its a right ontro the 1021, and at Dok Kham Tai ita a right onto the 1251

Another road that always good fun to ride, minimal traffic, good bends and a good surface combine to make it an enjoyable trip

Its getting clearer in the hills now

I reach the T junction with the 1091, turn right onto it and this lovely road takes me into Nan

A nice fire out there

This section of the 1091 that I ride today is about 80 km of just pure brilliance, I remember riding on unmade sections years ago but now its just perfect

Yes I am definitely in Nan province now, I ride into town and check in at the Amazing Guest House as usual

Its a lasagna and garlic bread at Da Darios 262/3 Mahayod Road tonight, 160 Baht in total

No complaints about the food here
