Just finished doing the Doi Pukha loop. There are some recent roadwork projects. 1. Travelling east from Pua on 1256, the first 30 + kilometers are still in good shape. They are working on a 3 kilometer stretch near the temple. Right now it is packed dirt and gravel, OK for all bikes. 2. There is still some rough road at the start of the major downhill to Bo Klua. They are working on a 2 km piece, just above the final 5 km that was finished 18 months ago. Again, packed dirt and gravel. 3. Going south on 1081 from Bo Klua heading to Nan, the first 10 km in the valley is still OK. Once the road turns west, they are just completeing a MAJOR rebuild on the uphill section. For 10 km, the road has been widened and paved. The asphault was pretty fresh, and the lines have not been painted, but it will be a great ride soon.
