Another sunset along route 1256 in Pua

Traveling in Thailand

Yesterday I made again a short ride to Lan Doo Dow viewpoint along route 1256 at 1436m high in the mountains of Doi Phu Kha. Although it is only 28 km from my home, it takes me about 45min riding. And to prevent that I am riding back in the dark I always leave about 16:00. Ride up is is already beautiful in this time of the year with longer time of sunset, long shadows and autumn like colors in the forrest (as far the forrest has not been destroyed for corn plantations). At the viewpoint are now 2 coffee shops & souvenir shops. Behind the shops is the viewpoint that also is a camping ground from where you will have a stunning sunset view. Officially the viewpoint is part of Doi Phu Kha National Park. So after a drink of a hot choco (it is cold in the mountains) I did ride back home again. And the riding towards the sunset is even more stunning. Photo's above and directly below were shot with my new Samsung A31 phone while riding down. Last photo below is the camping ground at Lan Doo Dow Viewpoint.
