Chiang Mai to Fang. The way; Hwy 1001 to Phrao, then the 1346 to the 107, and north onto Fang. First stop was a quick look at the Bua Tong water fall. Hwy 1348, always a nice ride, and in the wet season when its lush and green its even better. Steep and twisty. I better take care. A little further on the Thai witches hats were out. And here is the reason. Maybe he didn’t see the signs. Now this is a big tree. Sign translates to “this is a big tree.” Couple of locals going about there business. Its onion picking season, so everyone was out doing there bit. Two happy onion pickers hard at work. The happy two have a lot of work in front of them. After picking its on to the pick up. The smell was beautiful. Just some of the pick ups waiting there turn to be loaded up. Yep….I got wet big time. Wat Pra That Doi Wiang Chai Mongkol. This is an impressive Wat complex near Long Kord, and even if your not into temples, this is one you gotta have a look at. Its built on mountain ridge and has some good views of the surrounding area. I was here at the start on the year with Sylvie, and you can see her report here. first-4-fantastic-days-riding-around-chiang-mai-t7198.html There currently building a reclining Buddha. And its big. This guy has a lot of work ahead of him. Id say its about 40 metres long and 15 metres high. Moto-Rex.
