On the motorbike from Pua to Ban Huai Put

Motorbike Riding in Thailand

Ban Huai Put is a small village in the mountains of Doi Phu Kha, about 12 km from Pua in Nan province, North Thailand. It is at about 950m above sea-level and about 700m higher as Pua. While in Pua at night you can see the little lights of the village and last year I did explore the road to it already a little bit. The first 500m is old concrete road and then it changes into a dirt/gravel road. So a no-no for my Kawasaki Z250. But last week I took the Kawasaki KSR from my wife and left at 5:30 in the morning for a lovely ride up the mountains. From the main road it is 9 km into the mountains and you go 700m up. Some steep parts are concrete, some parts of the road has deep tracks and some parts have gravel. Yes also on some steep parts. So it was a nice ride. The first 5 to 6 km the road is flanked by trees, but once you get closer to the village slash & burn killed all trees. The village is dead-end and there is nothing else as maybe 40 houses. Following are some photo of my trip.
