DAY 1: HANOI -> MAI CHAU
You will be transferred by car or taxi to our bike garage, from there you take the bikes and start your first day ride to Mai Chau. Leaving Hanoi and breaking out of the delta plains, we pass through endless limestone kart scenery as we travel up to the Northwestern region, the extensive farming lands comprising a sea of paddy fields split by tree-lined roads. Arrive in Mai Chau in late afternoon. There are many small roads that lead into the mountains around Mai Chau, so we’ll take the chance to ride out to the isolated H’mong, Dao and Thai villages. We will take on the challenge of an old road built by the French army and spend the afternoon to explore the nearby villages. Dinner and overnight in a Thai ethnicity stilt house in Mai Chau.
DAY 2: MAI CHAU -> HANOI
Say goodbye to the family, we ride today on a small, spectacular paved trail along the Ma river until Cam Thuy town where we stop to visit the fish cave. Lunch in a local restaurant. In the afternoon, we hit the Ho Chi Minh trail, many stops for photo as we riding through the area of the kart mountains. Get back to the city traffic, we arrive in Hanoi by 5pm. Tour ends.
