After our 10 day motorbike adventure in Mae Hong Son, we returned to Chiang Mai yesterday. We still had our bike today and decided to do the 100km Mae Sa Valley loop, before we return our trusty Honda Dream. This is apparently one of the most picturesque 100km you can ride in northern Thailand. So, after an early breakfast, we set off. Unfortunately for us, the weather had other ideas. It was raining the entire time and it got quite cold. That meant that the stunning views of the valley were lost on us. It didn’t help that both our ponchos have been ripped to shreds over the past weeks…
We set off on the Mae Hong Son loop yesterday and our first leg took us from Chiang Mai to Mae Sariang – a big one at 195km. Today, we pushed on along many winding corners on highway 108 for 162km. Riding away from the rain for most of the day, we actually ended up seeing a ‘double rainbow’ which was a great backdrop for the ride into the quaint city of Mae Hong Son. Going to spend a few days here to rest up and check out possible trekking options.
