The route 1020, 1155, 1093, 1210, 1345, 1021, 1222,

Total distance 359 km

I ride out of town at 8am along the 1020 on another cold morning then take a left onto the 1155 and as I climb it gets really foggy





As I ride further it clears a bit



The 1155 is the best road out here in my opinion as it has curves like this for a very long way

I take a left onto the 1093 to ride to Phu Chi Fa





I park the bike and start to walk to the summit, the kids are here with their wares









I reach the top and its not as foggy as I feared



Its a bit hazy and not as clear as I expected



Usually I can see the Mekong from here but not today







Wonderful views whichever way I look



Time to walk back down, I never saw a single foreign tourist here today, not that there were many Thais either

I ride southwards along the 1093 today as its a road that I havent ridden for a few years and along here I spot these tents



At N19.47.076 E100.24.091 this road is to my right, it is not on my Thinknet map but shows on the gps as still the 1093, looking at this I have to ride it





Its a winding twisty fun road that gets a bit pot holed as it nears the 1155, it joins the 1155 at N19.47.417 E100.20.476



As I reach the 1155 I turn around to enjoy it again in the opposite direction





Last time I rode along the 1093 the surface wasnt the best, since then it has vastly improved with a better newer surface like this in places





I stop for a short break at Phu Sang waterfall

From here I carry on along the 1093 taking a left that goes for about three km to the Lao border but nothing here no market or anything.
I take a left onto the 1210 then a bit further on a left onto the 1345

The landslip that Ben reported is still there, no clean up yet

My first time along here and its looking good

I reach the unmade section at N19.31.174 E100.24.527, its quite a rough section too with more work required before its ready for asphalt

1.2 km of unmade then its back to asphalt at N19.30.868 E100.25.063





I ride to a village at the end of the road and stop for a look around







The paved road finishes at N19.29.941 E100.27.456 and I guess this is the track that joins the 1160



From here its back to the 1093 where I turn left and take a right onto the 1021 then the 1222 to enjoy the 1155 back home

I eat at a 99 Baht buffet next door to the Madame Country Pub





Standard food

Plus ice cream.

Plan to check this area out sometime later this week as, during my trip along the Mekong, I saw some nice roads between the 1155 and the 1093 which seemed to be new for me as well as checking out the Ban Huak border market with Laos. The market seems to be on the 10th and 30th of every month according to the information I got.
