The Mae Hong Son Loop is a comprehensive way to discover one of Thailand´s most authentic provinces. For those wanting to see the real Thailand and wanting to ride a biker´s paradise, the Mae Hong Son Loop is the perfect antidote. Mae Hong Son is the most mountainous province in Thailand and receives little traffic due to its relatively remote location and time needed to reach it. This excursion will take you first to the highest peak of Thailand (Doi Inthanon with 2,565 meters above sea level). Ride along winding and narrow twisty curvy roads with high mountain scenery along the Myanmar border on perfect tarmac roads. 1,864 curves through a vast panorama view of Mae Hong Son and the charming Pai. National Parks and non-touristic places full of unique history and activities.
