Muong Tac field embraces the three sides of Phu Yen town with terraced fields that are carefully preserved from one generation to another, adorned with the beauty and charm of the district town.

Day 3North Vietnam Motorbike Tour from Than Uyen to Sapa

Today we leave Than Uyen and head to Sapa. The roads to Sapa are surrounded by giant rocky mountains. On the passing away from Binh Lu to the highest mountain passes in Vietnam, we will meet a spectacular pass called Tram Ton. Standing by the O Quy Ho pass, you will be thrilled to watch the whole Tram Ton Pass. It looks like a winding rope tied to the back of a mountain as if to challenge motorcyclists to conquer it. And also, not to be outdone, many adventure lovers and experienced off-road riders ever put their steering wheel curving along the curve of this pass until they overcame it and turned their back to admire themselves from such a great winding pass.

After crossing the pass, we will reach Lao Cao tertiary, which is about 2000 m high. You can enjoy a panoramic view of the valleys thousands of miles away from here. Our team will rest and have lunch at Sapa town. When all your luggage is moved to Sapa’s hotel room, we will have dinner in Ta Van town after having a short ride around Lao Chai.
