The route 1169, 1081, 4016, 1257

Total distance 189 km

Just outside Nan and my first stop was at the Jiranan reservoir

Image
Now to enjoy this lovely twisty section of the 1081 before the widening crew destroy its beauty forever
Image

Image

Image
On the 4016 and a new small reservoir has been created since I last rode along here
Image

Image

Image
Just about full and next years ride here should see a bit more greenery growing here
Image

Image
Now I am riding alongside the Wa river

Now to enjoy the great scenery along the 4016

The only thing that spoils the 4016 is the loose gravel on the surface and care is needed along here
Image

Image
The Nam Mao which flows into the Wa
Image
I leave the KLX and walk across as theres nothing to ride over for
Image

Image

Image

Image
The surface may be shot but the scenery is great
Image
Now to ride back along the brilliant 1257
Image

Image

Image

Image
A fun ride back to Nan
Image
A couple of doors along from my guesthouse the owner was cutting these chompoos from the tree and gave one to me, a taste slightly like an apple but this one was definitely not a sweet one
Image
Roast beef, yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, cabbage , cauliflower, broccoli and gravy for 260 Baht at Tonys Place.

  1. Hi Peter

    It used to be unnumbered then a few years ago it was the 4016 before being numbered the 1333 but this number is only on the km markers as you come in from the Bo Kluea end and after a few km the markers and road number stops. The GPS still calls it the 4016 and towards the 1257 end I have seen it referred to as the 1257, this is Thailand so who knows.

    As for it being the 1257 Westwards from Phu Fa, your guess is as good as mine

  2. Hi Colin,
    Β 
    I’m a little confused by some of the road numbers. In this post http://www.captainslash.com/nan-the-1333-and-some-roads-off-of-it/ you say that the 4016 is now the 1333, but in this newer report you refer to it again as the 4016. Did you see any signs at all? Is it correct that the road from Phu Fa Westwards is the 1257?
    Great trip reports and pictures. I wish I had travelled more slowly, like you do. πŸ˜€
    Thanks,
    Peter.
