Hello everyone...welcome to my journey^^
I have come to Phu Tab Berk many times but I have never seen the foggy sea at all. So I follow "Kao Kor - Phu Tab Berk Lover page", there are updated information about the recommended period when you can see the foggy sea. That helps me to complete this trip and see the foggy sea as I expect.
Again many thanks for the information from "Kao Kor - Phu Tab Berk Lover page".
Let's find the foggy sea in rainy season>>>
(The trip date 7- 9 June 2016)
........In the morning of 7th June, I go to Ducati Centre, Vibhavadee to get a big bike test drive. They arrange Ducati Moster821 for me. We pack everything on the back seat then we start the journey>>>
(I am so excited when riding this and it is Naked Design which is easier to ride than Sport Design. My own one is series Ninja 250)
We take the direction on Vibhavadee - Phaholyothin - Wang Noi - and turn left to Lopburi on Road No. 21.
(Normally I ride with the 250cc but I jump to 821cc, so I need some adjustment to get use to with this big bike)
Today is such a nice weather with clear blue sky ^^.
Beautiful mountain view
I my pack, there are tent, sleeping mat, water prove bag, camera and camera accessories.
Stop for refueling and eating at Bueng Sam Pan

The Flame Tree is blossom on the side road, the charming of travelling in rainy season.
Plentiful of trees and greenery area
Breathe in the pure oxygen and enjoy natural surrounding
Then continue on Petchaboon Bypass Road
We can see the mountains are surrounded by fog.
We have to get to the top of the mountain before it get dark.
Turn right to Phu Tab Berk
It makes me feel really good when seeing fog all over in everywhere that I have passed.
Seeing 7/11 at the corner turn left to go up to the mountain
It is really beautiful along the road and there are cool stream of fog passing my body while riding^^
Caution: Some parts of the road are under construction so ride with full attention and be careful.
The higher you go, the colder you feel
No need to be rushed, enjoy the nature
Use caution when ride because the road is not smooth
Travelling during a weekday is so good because it is not busy.
Dogs and motorcycle is always together.
At viewpoint, looking back from where we climb up^^
Take another photo with fog near the school
This is the charming of travelling in rainy season.

Arriving to our destination
At the camping area, Rai Rim Pha, Phu Tab Berk
It is really beautiful as you can see....
No more energy, hungry and sleepy!!!
View from my tent
Even there is no star on the sky but we can see them on the ground.
Cannot sleep....just go out and have some walks
The contrast of darkness and the lights from the town so beautiful
There are only 2 tents camping today.
No more noisy sound entertainment from the car
It was raining and windy last night, my tent was fine. It makes me have a well sleep than ever.
Wow!!!! Foggy sea finally we can see it
The heaven on earth!!!
As I have expected to see, feeling great^^ .
Tree no leaves
Rain helps to cool off my big bike and we are not going anywhere today.
It is raining and very cold.
So I just stay in the tent to keep myself warm. (Sleeping all day hahaha)
Wake up again around 10.00 hrs. this is what I see ^^
Feeling so happy!!!
Look in the mirror
I have never seen flowing fog this close before.
Finally the sun is shining to dry up the rain.
If you are coming during the weekend you might not see the view like this because it will full of people and tents.
The advantage of camping in the private area is there is free WiFi because there is no phone signal up here.
Another beautiful view from lens 50 mm with a background of the city
I am so happy with this trip and always want to come back again even I have come so many times.
Always have my big bike aside as a friend!!!
Good morning, there is no foggy sea today because it was not raining last night.
