Can you rent a motorbike in Chiang Khong? Phu Chee Fah - Phu Lang Ka loop?
10th October, 2011
I've been reading about how beautiful Phu Chee Fah and Phu Lang Ka are and it seems the easiest way to get there is on a motorbike. I'd like to start out from Chiang Khong, but does anyone know if there are motorbike's available for rent in Chiang Khong? I know that there are a lot of paved roads in this area, but I can imagine it being winding mountainous terrain. I'd be doing it with my girlfriend and we both have NO experience on a motorbike, would it be doable for an absolute beginner? or would we come out of there in stretchers? Assuming on the way down we spend one night at Phu Chee Fah and one night at Phu lang Ka, how much time is needed for the whole loop?
Any insight or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Im sorry i dont know, but people have spoke about this loop and it sounds amazing. Maybe you can rent from Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai and start the loop from there. May be better and cheaper prioces for bike rental.
