    So, as they say they days, a three week window has suddenly opened to allow a visit to LOS. I'm planning to hire a car and use eight days of that time to drive out of Chiang Mai in a MHS loopish sort of fashion. This drive will happen early-mid June.

    For some reason, I fancy clockwise, maybe because I'm staying in Hang Dong for a couple of days beforehand so I'm on the way already (I think).

    CM to Mae Sariang via Doi Inthanon doesn't look like a problem in a day, but a night in Mae Chaem might be a nice lazy thing to do. If you've got any ideas about that, or info on accommodation etc feel free to share! Then again maybe I want to go Mae Chaem-Khun Yuam-MHS, any views on that drive and/or missing Mae Sariang?

    Thanks for any input.

    Sorry can't really help. I've done Soppong and Pai but not the other side. Hope you enjoy it and post some pics later. I heard Mae Sariang was worth a stay.

    Thanks. I think I've figured out that Mae Sariang stays on the list - and is night one. MHS and Soppong to follow.

    Mae Sariang is very nice and relaxing. Enjoying a beer and a beautiful fresh snakehead fish at the riverside while watching the sunset is very memorable! I have done the Mae Hong Son loop twice via Doi Inthanon and Mae Sariang: just fabulous, so enjoy!

    I suggest you visit Ang Ka Luang which located near the peak of Doi Inthanon. Ang Ka Luang is one of beautiful destinations in Chiang Mai that you should visit, you will impress and fascinate with a real nature there.
