A stint on H 11 was needed heading south then it was onto the 1189 and a more scenic pleasant route

Reaching the crest means 1 km of unpaved track to get there

But this road goes to the side of the reservoir where there is a shop and seats

At the crossroads of the 1317 and 1006 I pick up the 3044 canal road and ride it to Doi Saket.
Last year there was a short unpaved section but now its all paved.

After Doi Saket I link this canal road up with the 4034 canal road that goes to the weir on the Ping river.
This means I can ride from that weir to H 11 south of Lamphun just following those lovely canal roads
