Day 1: Hanoi to Mai Chau (160 km)

Today, the whole crew will depart from Hanoi around 8 am to enter a 170-km distance ride to Mai Chau on narrow small roads. Crossing the busy traffic, you will keep riding for 6 continuous hours to reach the final destination.

Having lunch en route, then, we’ll follow the National Highway 6 on a small winding path alongside Black River. The ride is quite enjoyable to cross through Thung Khe, a spectacular pass n the North of Vietnam.

Next, you will go downhills to the center of Mai Chau valley where the White Thais are enjoying their peaceful life there. Experience a beautiful night at a local stilt house hosted by the local people. That must be awesome!

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

Enjoy a 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 the 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.
Finish your day on a homestay hosted by a Muong family.
