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. For more information about Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan. Following are some photo of my trip.
One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster
The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
