Phuket is expanding very fast and with it, the water supply needs to grow. I thought I saw what is to be a new reservoir being built above Chalong bay, and so naturally I have to go explore it!
Even if its not being built there is a mountain road to explore here, so the journey won't be a complete loss.
When you arrive in the hills, yes indeed there is what appears to be a major damn building project underway here. The hill around has its access road, but the damn itself doesn't even have its footing yet.
The road is missing in places, neatly ending in rocks and soil, but nothing impassable. If 3 wheelers can get across it, so can I!
