Hello from Phuket,
I've been a long time lurker on this forum and finally joined, I must say what a great wealth of excellent info can be found here, thanks to all who have contributed and certainly helped me make some choices.

btw I do have a 10/11 day ride planned for this Dec with a good mate, starting in Khao Kho, Phu Tabberk, Sirikit dam feery crossing, Nan Noi, Doi Samer Dao, Bo Kluea, 1148 up to Phu Chi Fah, Chiang Khong / see a few famous GT sites, over to Doi Tung for passion fruit salad 555, Gumbie House (Fang) 1249/1340 to Pai, MHS, Doi Inthanon, and make our way back to Khao Kho.

Cant wait, thanks again.

Thanks for the GTR kudos.
Hope you have a great trip.

I see you are looking to stay at Gumbie House in Fang.
I've been thinking about giving the Fhuk Fang a go just because of the name.

Just did 2 days of 14 day trip at Gumbie House near Fang Hot Springs. Fantastic! One of the best little resorts in the area. We went for early morning hot spring soaks before enjoying some really spectacular riding on many of the roads labelled 3037. Had lunch at campground at end of one of them. Touted as "highest campground in Thailand". Much better than most with shady, treed camping areas and only one couple camping. Beautiful roads made for motorbikes with very few others on the roads. Tried to take the back way north of the park along the Burmese border from 1314, but gate was shut and military guard wasn't having it. Next time, I guess. Other highlights were extremely fresh oranges just off the trees, the Agricultural R&D at Doi Ang Khan, and many small hydroelectric plants we were welcomed to tour. As well as Gumbie House itself. Lovely place. Highly recommend! Outside of Arunothai--anybody know what these clay urns are for, and why they are discarded like this?
