Day 2: Mai Chau To Pu Luong (170 km)

Enjoying delicious breakfast, then say goodbye to Thai hosts before you continue the journey to stunning Pu Luong. Actually, we have many roads for you to ride on. You can choose the easier and shorter route to Ma river through endless rolling hills, and then, ride along the river banks through multiple local farmlands and villages. Here, the locals make perfect chopsticks and many other unique handcrafted products from bamboo. Your eyes will be feasted with marvelous nature reserve of Pu Luong while you are on the way to reach a nearby village of the Muong ethnic people.

Another choice is to join a longer path on the guides and maps. Obviously, this stretch will take more hours and require better riding skills and experiences than the other selection. However, you will surely enjoy amazing off-road experiences across magnificent mountains and forests.
