This is an extract from a tour report still under preparation and to be posted shortly. A group of eight friends from the UK on a nine day motorcycle tour of Northern Thailand. It contains current road conditions and may be of interest.

Thailand Road Report: February 8th

Doi Ang Khan Border Area

From the top of the Doi Ang Khan a group of nine motorcyclists that included a Thai mechanic, official tourist guide, driver and 4 x 4 pickup headed North with the intension of following the Myanmar border as far as the road would allow.
We were stopped at the Nor Lae checkpoint and not allowed through. Two years ago this was not a problem, but we were told that the new army officer in control has stopped this access. Apparently the track can be used during a 5-6pm window only.
