On the motorbike to Phu Tabeak, Dan Sai and Loei

Motorbike riding in Thailand

Another motorbike trip made in 2014. I was heading for the Phi Ta Khon festival in Dan Sai and left again very early in the morning and took route 12 to Lom Sak. High on the mountains of Nam Nao is this spirit house together with 2 or 3 other live-size spirit houses. They are all red and there are 100's of little stone animals! After Lom Sak I went up Phu Hin Rong Khla with a great view point at about 1600m above sea-level. The all mountain was in the clouds and it did look beautiful. Well that was until I did not see much further as 10m anymore! And my visor & glasses fogged up. For more motorbike trip reports in Thailand see MOTORBIKE TRIP REPORTS.

I arrived at lunch time in Dan Sai and did meet some other people of the "Golden Triangle Riders" and we had a good day & night in Dan Sai. The next day was the famous parade of the "Pho Ta Khon" festival. At about lunch time we left Dan Sai to head to Loei, as I am a bit a "einzelganger" I did ride alone and took the "long way home" by going straight north in direction of Na Heao and then east along the border before I would go a bit down again to Phu Ruea to take route 203 to Loei. The area along route 2113 and 2195 is really amazing beautiful and the roads are almost all very good. You are passing small villages, rice fields and beautiful mountains. I had a small snack in a small village just 10 km north of Na Heao where there is a local Thai/Lao border. In Dan Sai I always stay at Green Mountain View Resort or Phu NaCome Resort. The latter is not cheap but really nice and even with swimming pool.
