Pha Taem National Park by leananiemand

Pha Taem National Park

What a lovely day it turned out to be. The road led partly through the Pha Taem National Park, making for a shady albeit hilly ride with dense forest on both sides of the road (thank goodness for the cloud cover). Butterflies and dragonflies darted around us as we slowly made our way up the hills. By that time, Emiel was getting hungry, but there were no roadside stalls along the road, such that by the time we reached Khong Chiam, we were starving. We found a lovely guesthouse right on the Mun River, had a shower, and then took a walk to where the Mun River meets the Mekong. If we had been there earlier, we would have seen where the two rivers meet as they differ in colour and flow side by side without mixing. It was, however, already nearly sunset, and we headed for the nearest restaurant.

When you talk about your bike trips I never consider the fact that there are hills such as this! A beautiful overview of the valley from this vantage point
