Two Bangkok mountain bikers had to be rescued after getting lost in a Takhiantia forest.

Exhausted but unhurt, Satjapong Pattanasukasan and Pongsak Sittitham, both 39, were found by a search party of about 20 rescuers and residents after four hours deep in the Song Pi Nong forest March 14.

Satjapong said he had biked in the jungle famous for mountain biking about 10 years ago and came with a friend to do it again. They parked at Tumpratun and cycled into the forest in the morning.

But the two wandered off the set path and found themselves lost and unable to get back to the road. With it getting late, they called a friend to ask for help

Satjapong said he got lost because he didn’t realize the forest hand grown and changed in 10 years.
