  • General data:
    • We started from Tony's Place at 0740 Hr and headed via the Naresuan Bridge in direction of Saraburi via tracks and roads. We made a first stop after nearly 30 Km at around 0910 Hr close to Wat Santi Wihan. We continued to the Namtok Sam Lan National Park and reaching Highway #1 we carried our bikes over a foot bridge. From there it was only a couple of hundred meters to reach the large Wisutthimakiri Chinese Cemetery. We biked through the cemetery until we reached the road leading into the National Park. In the park we visited the Sam Lan Waterfall and on exit of the park we went to explore the Japanese World War II Memorial on Khao Daeng. After finding a rock shelter we descended and biked to Wat Phra Phuttha Chai. Before entering the temple premises, we took lunch in a local restaurant nearby. After lunch we visited Phra Pathawi or the Shadow of the Buddha imprinted on a rock face. Thereafter we biked up Khao Phra Phuttha Bat for a panoramic view of the area. All objectives reached, we returned to Ayutthaya via an alternative way. We arrived at Tony's Place at 1645 Hr after 120 Km of biking and about 5 Km of walking and climbing.
