After a hearty breakfast we tackle the 100 kilometres ‘Burma loop’. Ride to the Burmese border through the magnificent Salaween national park with some of the best jungle trail your ever likely to come across. Nearly fifty river crossings in one day and a swim in the Salaween River overlooking the border of Burma.
A long, 190 kilometres, ride ahead of us from Mae Sariang to Mae Hong Son. Enjoy the best bit of tarmac that the famous Mae Hong Son loop has to offer and then it’s off onto some great jungle trails with a couple of big river crossings.
Rest day in Mae Hong Son. Sample the delights of this charming border town. Choose to visit the Long Neck villages and take an elephant trek in the jungle or just choose to chill out by the pool.
Back on the old elephant trail again as we head from Mae Hong Son to Pai on this invigorating 130 kilometres off road trail. Pai is a charming mountain valley town with great facilities and plenty of bars for a good night on the tiles.
Today embark on the 120 kilometres, Burma loop two. Loop up on some great jungle trails up to the border of the Shan state in Burma. The border here between Thailand and Burma in these parts is always a bit unclear!
