To reach the Mae Kuang dam…

The road ends at the dam.

Here you can hire a small boat to put your bike on, sail across the dam with the bike on board

Put your bike on the boat & away you go.

Unload your bike at the other side by the dam wall. Take lunch at a nice restaurant overlooking the dam & ride 25 kms back to Chiang Mai.

With your bikes on board sail away across the dam. Great fun.
