thank you Dorje for sharing

thank you Dorje for sharing your file. I won't do at all your route but I will certainly check your accomodation in Chiang Mai.
Do you have recommandation for the route Chiang Mai - Mae Hong Son. We have one month to discover Thaïland. I am not sure the Gold Triangle is a place to go. Am I wrong?
We leaving BKK on 22 august and come back on 18 september 2013.

Thanks for the advice

Thanks for the advice Paul.
Our last trip was in Bolivia and Peru...the mountain around Chiang Mai is it that hard? or is it because of the heat that makes hard?
I am open to all suggestions: I see on the map lot of scenic routes around Chiang Mai but not much on the Mekong. As lot of cyclists we prefer to avoid busy road, big cities and privilege nice scenic ride and be close to the people.
We usually ride 70km/ day (even in Bolivia) with a stop every 4 or 5 days.
