This has been on my short list for a long time!
Finally on my way!!
Got the bike loaded on the train and we are slowly working our way north towards Chiang Mai.
Some other “weekend warriors” recently rode some of the trails between Omkoi and Mae Ngao and said it was spectacular. I’ve managed to sniff out a number of different routes that will take us west from Omkoi towards the 105 and Mae Ngao. FYI, all these trails are available for FREE on Openstreetmap and Google Maps. There’s some monkey in Chiang Mai trying to sell these tracks for several thousand baht!
Seems there are at least two ways to go. Southwest towards Sop Khong:
Or Northwest towards Na Kian:
Either way looks great and I’m hoping to do a big loop from Omkoi to Mae Ngao National Park and back; will flip a coin to decide if we’ll do it clockwise or counter clockwise.
