After lunch in a food stall, you climb up high in the mountains along a stunning 30 kilometer offroad section along steep slopes with orange farms and hilltribe villages. This section ends on a hight of 1700 meters sea level. After a stop at a viewpoint, you follow a narrow road to the famous Pai Road #1095 and swing down in the valley along countless paved curves.
