This is an easy little ride out to a big a dam & back.
The Mae Ngat dam
The scenery, apart from at the dam, is not brilliant, but the ride is quite interesting and a good mix of main highway, narrow tight winding back roads, plus a fast sweeping / swooping section coming out of the hills. Do this one, if you’ve had enough of the Samoeng loop, but not enough time for the Phrao loop.
Between R1001 & R107 is Wat Ban Den a stunning temple that is well worth a visit
