On the motorbike to a small village in the mountains of Doi Phu Kha

Motorbike Riding in North Thailand
Village in the mountains of Doi Phu Kha in Nan province

OK the motorbike was the Honda CUB and we were with 2 people on it so it did go slow, very slow. When riding route 1256 from Pua to Bo Klua and you look sometimes around you see in a distance small villages in the middle of nowhere. And I always think "How the hell people get there?" as I not really see roads going there. This is one of that villages ... Ban Pha Yang. I have been looking on google earth to find routes to some villages with roads that are doable on a road-bike. Even a Honda CUB! So I did find a route going from route 1081 at Sila Phet into the mountains. And today we tried to get there. Of course first the road is nice cement but then later dusty sand. And again later slightly red clay. And of course sometimes gravel and sometimes steep. But at the latter there is almost always cement road surface. Some nice views at a height of almost 1.000m above sea-level. Now I would not do this in the raining season but otherwise a very nice short trip. Riding with 2 people on a Honda CUB was a bit challenging, but I will do it again alone on the Kawsaki KSR. And explore a bit further. Following are some photos and a map of the route.
