My ride to Snake Mountain

I still get a lot of people asking for more motorcycle ride videos. Of course, the main problem during the wet season is to predict the weather and guess if it will rain. It just so happened that this day looked most favourable for a ride and although it did rain for the last 10 minutes of the trip home, it was a good run.

Khao Ngu Stone Park was the destination for the ride today, more commonly known as Snake Mountain. From the limited research I’ve done, it seems the name Snake Mountain actually comes from the shape of the limestone outcroppings which line up to look like a snake if looked at from above. These ‘mountains’ seem to sprout out of the otherwise flat plains which can be seen from quite some distance away.

The area was originally a limestone mine but the miners uncovered an ancient artifact in the area with deep religious significance so the mine was shut down. There are a number of caves and some local monkey inhabitants but I didn’t venture that far this time because I think it might be a place I would like to visit again when Chanya is with me.
