It was a short mileage day today, but in previous trips this had been a tough day in muddy conditions with vehicles meeting each other head on around narrow corners so the smallest usually has to back up to let the larger vehicle through.
However, a new road, complete with new tunnels to replace those dodgy narrow corners has been built since the last trip in 2015 so all this is a thing of the past. Although it is a good thing, I can’t help thinking that some of that amazing experience has been lost, but then I am looking at this through the eyes of an adventurer and I am sure most tourists and locals would welcome the new infrastructure.
One of the photo stops that I was looking from a viewpoint over the Lulang Forests, but to get to this viewpoint involved quite a few steps and at this altitude my lungs told me the view was not worth it, but I did proceed to get the photo anyway.
As the day progressed, the photo stops got fewer although I did stop quite a few times to rest my eyes as I was feeling very tired for some reason today and struggled at times to keep awake whilst riding.
