Along the border – Bueng Khan

After yesterdays 413 km ride in strong winds it was time to take a break in Bueng Khan.

Bueng Khan is a small province in the north east of Isaan, Thailand. Separated from Nong Khai in 2011, Bueng Khan is located in the North-East corner of the Isaan at the Mekong river.

One of the main attractions in this area:
Bueng Kan’s Hin Sam Wan (translating to Three Whale Rock) is a nature experience definitely worth visiting. The 75-million year-old rock jutting majestically out of the mountains earned its name because from the right perspective, it looks like a family of whales. Stunning view from the top.

To go up there, you need to rent a driver plus car (pick up) for 500 THB. Entrance fee is 100 THB for foreigners. Parking is for free.
Thats some money, but definetely worth it.

We arrived up there with heavy winds. For me it was not a safe feeling going out too much on the rocks, a lot gusts of wind.

On the way up to the rocks, the first stop is at a Buddha statue.

Did you ever see an Elephant shaped rock?
Here you are:

In walking distance from the Elephant rock you will arrive at a stunning view point.

From this point you see nothing than trees until the Horizont – the so called Korat Plateau.
The Korat Plateau (Thai: ที่ราบสูงโคราช) forms a natural region, named after the short form of Nakhon Ratchasima, a historical barrier controlling access to and from the area.

For me this view is relaxed for the eyes. No building, no pot, no tree disturbes the view. Almost like you sit at the beach and have a look the sea.

After this great visit up in the mountains it was time to go back to the resort. For relax, take a nap, do the planning for the next days and eat something. (Food is always important!!).

Ride safe, enjoy yourself and see you next time!!!
