    Has anyone ridden this exact route from Chiang Dao Nest to Doi Kiew Lom Viewpoint or other way around?

    I would like to know what are the road conditions closer to Doi Kiew and if suitable for big bike such as GSA 1200. Sure would appreciate detailed commentary and pics if possible.

    Chiang Dao Nest : 19.40308, 98.92596

    Doi Kiew Lom Viewpoint: 19.31371, 98.60400

    Thanks in advance guys.

    This is the route: https://goo.gl/TLkkvG

    From Chiang Dao to Ban Muang Khong the road is paved but further to the west to the Huay Nam Dang National Park is unpaved. Haven't been for quite some time so don't know the present conditions.

    Here's a report from Moto-Rex in that area

    Not quite the same, but an idea of some of the trails over that way.

    Here's some pics of that route from October 2014. These pics were in a Tilosu report I did but can't find it on the forum now.

    Round the north side of Angkhang. Paved at first, then concrete, then dirt. Great fun.

    Yes, sorry, I don't know what a GSA 1200 is, I did it on a Kwackasagi KLX250.
