I took the 1095 out of Mae Hong Son, all the bridge repair work is finished between here and Pai with just a few lines still to be painted on the road

This nice new section was not here last time I rode this way

Its one fine piece of road now from MHS to Pai

I havent rode between Pai and the 107 for over two years now and I am pleased to say the surface is much better than last trip

Another road that doesnt straighten out

Between Pai and the 107 there are a couple of long sections being improved so be careful as theres a fair bit of loose grit around. Upon reaching the 107 I turn left and ride to Chiang Dao, I was pleased to be able to finish my journey on tarmac, whilst the roadworks are still going on I did not have to ride on any dust or gravel surfaces.

At Chiang Dao I had a great meal as usual at Mon&Kurts restaurant but unfortunately they were full so I could not stay there but the Piengdao guest house had a room for 150 Baht so its there for a night

  1. I’m not sure if you are aware, but if you make the trip from Chiang Mai to Mae Hong Son via Pai (The ten thousand corners route) you can get a certificate and bumper sticker from the TTT office in Mae Hong Son. They charge you for it but it is nevertheless a nice memento of the trip.

    I’ve made this trip three times. Once by car and twice by push bike!
