    Hi Guys,

    A bunch of friends and I are looking to do some dirt roads around the Boolaven Plateau and below.
    I have been on the main roads and a little bit of dirt from Attapeu to Paksong before.

    But now we have the KLX's we are looking to do mostly dirt roads to Attapeu where possible and then to Phatumphon.

    Has anyone been on route 18 Attapeu to Phatumphon? We are looking to do this first week of May. Hopefully the rainy season would not have started and the rivers still OK to cross.

    Any tips advice are most welcome

    Thanks in advance,

    Brian

    Was there in January this year. Should be no problem if it has not rained a lot - anyway there are "bike ferry/carry" services to cross the main rivers. Did not take the road as I was in the truck and was advised by the road building people that I might have problems crossing one of the rivers as the water was still quite high at that time.
