About Ban Sakad in Nan province
Ban Sakad is a small hill-tribe village in the mountains of Doi Phu Kha, about 20 km from Pua town, at a height of about 1.000m above sea-level. The location on the slopes of the mountains and the slow life are the main attraction of Ban Sakad. And the unknown little village is becoming a popular destination for Thai tourists. Hurry up before is becomes another Pai! For more information about Nan province have a look at Destination Travel Guide Nan.
Orientation in Ban SakadBan Sakad is an assembly of 3 villages of different hill-tribes, so there is Ban Sakad Tai, Ban Sakad Klang and Ban Sakad Nua. And Ban Sakad Klang has a lower part and an upper part. But basically there are only 3 roads, in the beginning of the village area you arrive at a crossroad. To the left goes to Ban Sakad Klang (lower part) and Ban Sakad Nua. Straight ahead goes very steep up to Ban Sakad Klang (upper part). And to the right goes to Ban Sakad Tai. Be aware that the latter road ends at a steep part without option to make a u-turn. Be aware that the road to Ban Sakad is a dead-end just after the village. And be aware that most houses can only be reached by foot. So there is very limited place for parking your car.
