The route 1001, 1323/4046, 4031, 1150, 118

Total distance 308 km

I headed out along the 1001 enjoying a gentle ride

At the turn for the Mae Ngat dam I noticed that this road which has always been the 1323 has been renumbered the 4046 although it still shows as the 1323 on my gps map

Another one thats at its highest for a few years, was there exceptionally heavy rainfall in the area this year?

Halfway to Phrao and I notice the water is higher by the road, my gps tells me that this is part of the Mae Ngat reservoir, if it was at full capacity I think the water level wouldnt be far below the road along here

I ride to Phrao then take a right onto the brilliant 1150 and its only a couple of km before its up in the scenic hills

The bends start straight away

On zoom, a very pleasant ride along here as usual, no bad bits and not really any road debris to speak of either. I ride to the end of the 1150 turn right and ride back to CNX along the 118
