This guys in the middle of the river busily tugging his boat along, I ride back towards the 1091 then take a right up a steep road to visit a new temple

Phrathat Phu Po at N18.52.130 E100.16.497, this was what I could see high on the hill riding along the 1091

A good twisty road but its not a really smooth surface, I take a left onto the 4011 and ride northwards returning onto the 1092 in the opposite direction back to the 1148

A few km later Its a left onto the 4020 to ride to the Phu Langka Forest Park

After a steep climb I turn a corner to see this lovely sight

Lots of these along here, the asphalt finishes after 7.8 km at N19.23.683 E100.27.321 and its a steep dirt track which I leave for another day

Further along the 1148 at N19.21.299 E100.32.221 I take a left for the Tham Sakoen National Park

Which ends here 4.6 km later at N19.23.193 E100.31.920

There is a sign for a waterfall but its an 800 metre climb and as the water running past where I stop only looks like this I certainly cant be bothered to climb for that
DSCF2223.jpg

Its probably a different story in the wet season though
DSCF2224.jpg

As I am about to leave a family turn up and the kids go off to play in the water

The Nam Ngim Reservoir that can be seen from the road
DSCF2228.jpg

Further along the 1148 at N19.22.923 E100.35.907 I turn left onto possibly the 5087, I see this number on a sign but the gps doesnt even show the road

The asphalt finishes after 3.9 km at N19.23.700 E100.34.731

Ban Yot school, some of the kids have got kites and some are playing football.
It was time to explore some of the side roads off the 1148 today, there were more but I ran out of time
