The next day we depart to Huai kha khaeng, a wild life sanctuary. Lunch will be provided on the road in a traditional restaurant. Thung Yai-Huai kha khaeng Wildlife Sanctuaries are the most abundant forest reserves in Thailand. Ethnic people in the west of the country and experienced hunter from town and city have known for long that these sanctuaries are home to a variety of wildlife animals, especially Asiatic or Wild Water Buffalo. Riding through this wild forest is a lifetime unforgettable experience.

One of the most important features of any Edelweiss tour is the right route. We take time to choose and test-ride our routes. For experienced motorcyclists, the smaller roads with less traffic and lots of turns are close to paradise, but too demanding for beginners or intermediates to handle. Riding conditions, traffic flow, local driving habits, and road surface quality all vary considerably from country to country and region to region. All of these factors go into our ROUTE GRADING determination.
If you have never been on a tour outside your home country, or if you have little or no experience riding extremely curvy mountain roads, we recommend you stay with the MODERATE or INTERMEDIATE tours. If in doubt, send us an e-mail or call!
Moderate: The whole route is on asphalt. The roads will be curvy at times, but mostly easy to handle. Even on these tours you must be able to ride your motorcycle – do NOT expect to learn how to ride a motorcycle while on tour! A minimum of 5,000 miles of motorcycle experience is required to take part in the tour, and you should ride motorcycles on a regular basis at home.
Intermediate: These routes run mostly on asphalt. There can be sections of very twisty roads, sometimes even with tight switchbacks. Traffic could be intense, and local driving habits may seem unpredictable, or even chaotic, to you – so you must be an experienced rider. A minimum of 7,500 miles of motorcycle experience is required to take part in the tour, and you have to ride motorcycles on a regular basis at home.
Tough: In general, these routes run on asphalt roads. A good portion of the route runs on very narrow, sometimes single lane roads. The roads are very curvy with quite a few tight switchbacks. There may be detours because of road construction, which will require riding on gravel and unpaved sections for some distance. Some riding days are quite long and demanding. Traffic may be very intense and unusual at times, with local driving habits that differ significantly from what you are used to. You must be a VERY experienced rider to take part in the tour. A minimum of 10,000 miles of motorcycle experience is required to participate, and you must ride motorcycles on a regular basis at home.
