Tour In Detail
Day 1: Hanoi Motorbike Tour To Vu Linh (~180 km, ~7 h)
We meet at 9am at our bike store in the Old Quarter of Hanoi. After a short briefing session we exit Hanoi from the West end on a straight road along the Red river (Song Hong). Easy drive to on the sealed road to Thac Ba Lake and follow the little road to Vu Linh. Vu Linh is a Dzao village by the side of the lake, very friendly people and the welcome is exceptional.
Day 2: Vu Linh Motorbike Tour Ha Giang (~180 km, ~6 h)
After breakfast, ride along the Thac Ba lake on a small road lined by palm trees and scenic mountain views to join the main road heading up to Ha Giang where we stop for the night and apply for a permit.
Day 3: Ha Giang Motorbike Tour To Dong Van (~180 km, ~6 h)
After getting the permit to ride in border areas at Ha Giang’s Immigration Police, we ride on small challenging mountain roads (but incredibly beautiful) on the land of colorful mountain hill-tribes.
Head up the Ma Pi Leng Pass. Here is yet another amazing place, with cloudy mountain ranges and the poetic Nho Que river winding off in the distance. Ride on a zig-zag track until Dong Van, a remote area and meet the hard-working local people here. It is inspiring to see how they survive as they manage live in the rocks. When we reach town we will have some extra time to wonder the ancient streets lined with H’mong homes of clay bricks and tiles roofs built centuries ago.
Another option is to stay in Meo Vac in a home stay or a hotel. From our experience, Dong Van is a nicer place than Meo Vac to overnight.
Day 4: Dong Van Motorbike Tour To Bao Lac (~80 km, ~4 h)
The road is still under construction and tracks what make the ride relatively long in spite of few kilometres. The landscape is among the most beautiful of Vietnam, and the slow tempo is only more appreciable.
We cross the wild regions of the mythical province of Ha Giang. Stop for the night at Bao Lac, the ethnic crossroad of Northeast Vietnam. Many other ethnic groups on the two sides of the border meet at the market every Sunday.
Day 5: Bao Lac Motorbike Tour To Cao Bang (~150 km, ~5 h)
Beautiful ride down to Cao Bang province. Few passes from where you can dominate the area. The road is easy but there are many blind curves. We can stop very often for photos. All together, stop for drinks and food it should be an 8-hour journey. Stay in a hotel.
Day 6: Cao Bang Motorcycle Tour To Quang Uyen (~140 km, ~5 h)
Ride in 1 hour and half to reach the beautiful village of Quang Uyen, in the middle of a mountain cirque. This is the territory of Nung An people. Home stay in a host family and the hostess is a great cook.
We make our way through spectacular scenery to Vietnam’s most impressive waterfall, Ban Gioc Waterfalls, 50km from Quang Uyen. Weather permitting we can swim right up to where the 50m high falls hit the river.
Day 7: Quang Uyen Motorbike Tour To Lang Son (~180 km, ~6 h)
Ride from Quang Uyen to Lang Son on the famous historical Highway 4. We will have time to discover this city which has become a big trading post between China and Vietnam. You can shop for cheap Chinese products at the nearby Dong Kinh market.
Overnight in hotel.
Day 8: Lang Son Motorbike Tour Back To Hanoi (~150 km, ~3 h)
Easy day back to Hanoi on the new Highway 1B. You can wake up late in the morning as we guess you can be tired after 7 long riding days.
Arrival at Hanoi around 3pm.
