This is one of a few dirt tracks between Phonsavon and Luang Prabang.
This you head west out of Phonsavan along hwy7, then turn north on to a dirt track near Nong Tang.
About 10kms in the track becomes very steep, with deep ruts, and many landslides to ride over. Carry plenty of water.
I would say that the section between Nong Tang and the river crossing would be impossible to do if it rained. Even in the dry, it’s a tricky ride.

As you can see it was like a roller coaster.
