    Chiang Rai to Chiang Khong via Khun Huai Mae Po

    Great ride, 75% road, and the rest some of the most enjoyable trails I’ve ridden.

    All roads and trails on the GT-Rider Golden Triangle Loop map.

    Just out of Chiang Rai. Love it.

    The wet season is the best time to go riding in my opinion. Sure you get wet now and then. But its worth it.

    Time for lunch in the thriving metropolis of Khum Huai Mae Po. Really nice little village. I should have taken some more photos.

    Back on the tar. The quiet and scenic Highway 1174 which takes you into Chiang Khong.

    I arrived in Chiang Khong and the road had just been resurfaced. Quite amusing watching people walk across the warn wet tar in thongs. No doubt there's still some of the rubber footwear stuck to road to this day.

    Another great day out in the north.

    Too easy & too good eh Rexy?
    North Thailand is full of magic little trails all through the hills.
    Then good food, cozy accommodation & pleasant night life in the evening. Thailand has the full package to enjoy riding & life everytime.

    BTW there are some interesting tracks west of Chiang Khong you may want to have a look at next trip.
