    Will be in Nan in this weekend and plan to do the Doi Phukha loop, how are the roads there nowadays especially roads 1256, 1081 and 1169?
    Hope to hear from anybody who has been there recently.
    Thanks

    Well I did the 1081 and 1256 in March 2012 and the roads were great, most of the 1081 brand new. Actually amazing why the hell the roads are so good in the middle of nowhere going to nowhere.

    I went over Doi Phukha in February this year on an Enfield Bullet and in March on a dirt bike. Just beautiful. Roads are fine and the last stretch of road running down into Bo Luang is a cracker. Enjoy.
