North of Thailand day 3

You rarely not read a review of the accomodation where I stay over night. This time is an exception: Big thumbs up to Thung Lek Relax homestay for a great host, a warm and friendly welcome, a perfect service, a great dinner and also a great breakfast.
Staying in the farm, the night was so quiet, so relaxed – I really recommend that host.

My plan for this day was riding to the Sinakharin dam on small roads in the mountains.
On the map, this road is classified as a Rural Road what means that the road should be at least paved.
This Rural Road turned into off-road riding for more than 40 km. Hell yeahhhh…that was unexpected fun!!!!

Out of the mountains you arrive almost at the Erawan National Park. Well known for it’s beautiful water falls.
When you want to visit all the waterfalls, this means hiking for minimum 1,5 hrs…in motorcycle clothes not relally funny. And, I visited them already so I decided to continue the trip on
Hwy 3199 along the dam.

Over the last 5 yrs, I drove and rode this road 2 times. And it’s still one of my favourite highways in the western part of Thailand.
Very quiet, awesome views to the lake and some sort of morbid charm as the road decays more and more.
So if you ride or drive this highway, be carefull and take your time.

Tip: fill up fuel before riding this road.There are absolutely no gas stations along the lake


Absolute fantastic riding day. Due to the road conditions very demanding and tiring on one side. On the other side a great experience and very satisfying.
