Out the other side of the village and the unpaved track starts
Image

Image

Image

Image
The scenery is fantastic but the track is not a particularly pleasant ride at all

Its going uphill plus its a wet surface and I ponder turning around but decide to look a bit further
Image
Once out of the shade the track is dry but still hard and badly rutted
Image

Image
This is one of the few places where its a better riding surface
Image
This sign is nailed to a tree but I certainly dont see anything resembling this scene

I dont see any of them either, the track to the right says 1km to something so I go that way
Image
Part way along is this barrier
Image
At the destination at N18.32.892 E100.23.443 and its completely deserted

The small reservoir is full and slightly overflowing
Image
Looking inside one of the small huts
Image
No chance of that going anywhere

Time to press on, I am now riding on no track according to the Esri and I ride a while further than turn back, since I left the village I havent seen any sign of people out here

On the way back I actually encounter a living person but no one else until I get back to the village

Image
After riding back through the village I turn left onto an unmade track for a while
Image

Image
Now to ride to two more villages I found out here last trip
Image

Image

Image
This girl came riding down a steepish hill then stopped and spun it on the sidestand like I do with the KLX to turn it around then she was off back up the hill standing on the pegs, good riding from her
Image
I stop at a shop for refreshments and these are outside, possibly for sale I guess
Image

Image
A pleasant days riding now back to Nan
