7 Day 6 Night Northeastern Vietnam Motorbike tour
6-days Northeast Tour: Hanoi - Lao Cai
Unlike other motorbike tourism agents in Vietnam that often choose big roads with dense and dangerous traffic, we, Vietnam Motorbike Tours Club will choose small roads with little traffic and beautiful scenes that are surveyed again and again every year. After choosing satisfactory motorbikes, we depart at our warehouse outside Hanoi and go straight to Ba Be along the old road No. 3. Then, we will have lunch at Cho Don. After the lunch, if you don’t feel tired, we will arrange some moderate off-road sections for you. At around 17.00, we will reach Pac Ngoi, a village of Tay people peacefully located beside the lake. We will have dinner and sleep at a Tay people’s house with splendid view towards the lake and Ba Be National Park.
+ Ba Be lake: This lake was formed over 200 million years ago. Southeast Asian continental tectonic in the late Camri period raised a great quantity of water with surface area of about 5 million square meters and thickness of over 30m to half-way Limestone Mountain to create Ba Be Lake. Three branches of the lake are connected with one another and called Pe Lam, Pe Lu and Pe Leng.
The biggest value of Ba Be Lake is unique geological landscape, morphologic geology and biodiversity. This is the biggest natural freshwater lake in Vietnam.
In 1995, Ba Be Lake was recognized by the World Freshwater Lake Conference held in the USA as one of the world 20 special freshwater lakes that must be protected. At the end of 2004, Ba Be National Park was recognized as ASEAN Heritage Garden.
