the world's most spectacular roads

 

Doi Ang Khang is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1,928 m (6,325 ft) above the sea level, located in Fang District, Chiang Mai Province, Thailand. The mountain is called Thailand's 'Little Switzerland' for its cool climate and mountain scenery.

The road to reach the summit is called Rte 1249. It has a maximum19% (for 0.4 km). It is a steep zigzagging asphalt road. Therefore, only vehicles in good condition with experienced drivers can make the trip.

  

This road is very exciting and sometimes very exposed and unsecured driveway in innumerable twists and turns. There are great views from this route, but keep your eyes on the road as there are also some very steep switchbacks. As there is no public transportation to or within Doi Angkhang, hiring a car is recommended. As the road to Doi Angkhang is very windy hiring a driver is recommended if you feel uncomfortable navigating the steep hairpin turns uphill and downhill yourself.
