Wow – I just got these great pictures from our friend Max — He and several of his friends spent the weekend at this great place in Lampang. On Kew Lom Lake – at the Wang-Kaew Isle resort. Approx. 160Km from Chiang Mai past Lampang but before you reach Phayao.
Looks like a very peaceful place to relax and enjoy the company of good friends – he says that they took a bamboo-boat from the resort for a 2 hr round-trip tour of the lake – caves, landscapes, – then back to the resort’s natural gardens and comfortable rooms with WC/hot showers and a balcony overlooking the lake. Very reasonable – they paid about 1200 Baht ($40 US) person/night for lodging, food, drinks and tours — not bad.
P.S. I just ran across a web-site for “big game” fishing and it shows the Kew Lom lake – Don’t know how they do for the fishing, or how big they are BUT judging from the photos of the boys in Max’s shots, there must be a lot to catch at the resort (). New and I will have to check it out and let you know – fishing and the resort – ha ha .
