Driving in the Phu Phan Mountains from Sakon Nakhon to Kalasin,Thailand

The roads in Northeast Thailand are dangerous night and day, but driving through the Phu Phan Mountains in Isaan presents even more dangers, you might say one around every corner. Blind left hand curves are in fact one of the big dangers as vehicles coming in the opposite direction will often shortcut into your lane often running traffic off the road, if not causing a crash. Another spot that sees it’s share of close calls and accidents are hilltops, where drivers as always will ignore a solid yellow line and pass unable to see oncoming vehicles.
Vehicles often do not stay to the left to allow faster drivers to overtake. Motrcycles and their drivers are often ignorant of the rules of the road and will not be paying attention to their driving and might be carrying potentially dangerous loads. Driving too fast for conditions is a major cause of accidents for large buses and trucks.

Whatever the case driving through the Phu Phan can be a enjoyable experience or not. Just remember it is a jungle out there.
