The route unknown, 3005

Total distance 156 km

There are a few roads west of town that I decided to explore today, this guys got quite a few chillies to dry out

I ride to the Lum Nam Khong National Park

I was thinking of riding to the Salawin at Tha Ta Fang but after 1km it was a dirt track and I only want tarmac today, I will leave that for another visit so its a u turn and ride back

I take a left, this road is on the gt-rider map but not numbered

Obviously the sleeping dogs village

I dont fancy going any further this way

I take a left onto the 3005 that goes to the Salawin WS

Its a good surface to start with but it does have some well potholed places too

A new section is being surfaced inside the WS

I ride to the end of the tarmac then turnaround

I ride back to the WS gate and its 9.4 km of tarmac inside the gate although they have a long way to go if they are going to tarmac it all the way to the Burmese border

I ride a couple of other unnumbered roads, a pleasant days ride with good scenery too

I decide to have another buffet tonight

  1. Hi Colin
    Good to see you’re keeping up the good work! I’ve been living in Mae Sariang for a few months, its a nice quiet spot. I missed spotting you around town because I’ve been in Chiang Rai for the past 3 weeks, enjoying breakfasts at the ABC Coffee shop, and sweet-talking The Goddess morning, noon and night !  :-)
