    Hi has anybody taken this route recently? Looking to see if it is doable on a hired moped or dirt bike and guide?

    How much and how long does it take and is it worth doing.

    I'm definitely up for an adventure! ;o)

    Going in February.

    Many thanks for that update I'll definitely consider it.
    Is the best trekking in Ban Lung or Sen Monoram?

    Hi Stevie,

    Sorry, but I've never been to Banlung so I can't compare. I don't think you'll do bad with either choice but I hope that others who have been to both places will contribute. I do have a good connection in Sen Monorom who can link you up with the indigenous peoples. He has lived there for a long time and there is no charge for his service. He simply tries to help the local tribes. PM me if you are interested.

    Traveled Banlung to Sen Monorom two weeks ago on my dirtbike, the Death Highways, as it was called is long gone. It is now an easy three hr journey. Bring warm clothes, it was 11c one morning in SM

    Hi Stevie,

    Trekking in Sen Monorom is wonderful.
    You can travel on the dirt road from Sen Monorom through Koh Nherk and cross the bridge which just built then direct to Banlung.
    Many things to explore on the way.
