So now we had fully recovered from 2 nights ago and decided it was time to get our asses into gear and head on the first leg of our journey. We were following the 'Mae Hong Son' loop as our guide, but really had no set in plans or accommodation. We decided our first stop would be the quiet little town of Mae Chaem, about 120k's from Chaing Mai. We set off after some dangerously delicious waffles from Cumpun Guesthouse.
Once we got out of the city we had a bit of fun overtaking each other & soon realised our bikes had nothing like Digde's power in Vietnam. Nevertheless we managed to make it up some pretty big hills, but only just. Once we reached Doi Inthanon National Park the scenery became stunning. We stopped off at a sign saying 'waterfall' and found ourselves standing in front of Wachirathan Waterfall. We spent about half an hour here before we decided we should probably continue on our merry way. Our next stop came after a wrong turn (this time it was Justin's fault.) we stopped off at the Twin Pagodas, only 20ks down the wrong road, the perfect place for some lunch.
After about 5 hours we were in Mae Chaem and found ourselves a little bed guesthouse and relaxed for the remaining hours left of the day.
I better go, we asked our host how to work the hot water in the shower and she has come down with cups of tea, oh no.
