ITINERARY

Day 1North Vietnam Motorbike Tour from Hanoi to Vu Linh (Thac Bac Lake)

After enjoying breakfast with a cup of Vietnamese coffee, you move to the gathering point to start our 8-day North Vietnam Motorbike Tour. The first destination on this journey is Vu Linh – a small commune in Yen Bai district, home to Dzao ethnic minorities. To avoid rush hour, we will depart early, around 9 am. Today’s ride is quite long (180 km) and takes about 7 hours to complete. Driving for hours is exhausting, but the greater the effort, the sweeter the reward, right? Our motorbike team will follow highways and single-track roads to Thac Ba Lake, which was created when Thac Ba hydroelectric plant was built on the Chay River in Yen Binh district. The lake offers stunning scenery with over 1,300 islands, mostly covered in forests and clear water.

After taking some time to enjoy the beauty of Thac Ba lake, we will turn into a smaller road to reach Vu Linh commune. Our stopping point is Ngoi Tu cultural village – a peaceful village of Vu Linh commune that attracts domestic and foreign tourists through community tourism. Untouched by the modern world outside, until now, the villagers still retain their traditional crafts, cultural events, cuisine, folk songs, folk games, and house architecture. At night, we can participate in a campfire with the locals and enjoy delicious specialties. Overnight at a local homestay, finish our first riding day.

Day 2North Vietnam Motorbike Tour from Thac Ba Lake to Ha Giang

Let’s say Goodbye to Vu Linh with a delicious breakfast before jumping on the motorbike and heading to Ha Giang. The majestic scenery and ethnic colors of 22 ethnic minorities make Ha Giang worth a visit. Located in the northernmost part of Vietnam, about 400 km northwest of Hanoi, Ha Giang showcases majestic mountains, limestone walls, charming rivers, and friendly faces. Besides beautiful sceneries, this remote province is also an ideal place to explore the unique culture of Vietnamese ethnic minorities. It is all very relaxing and serene, how Vietnam’s experience should be.

To get to Ha Giang city, we will ride along Thac Ba lake on a rough road, shadowed by the line of trees on two sides and naturally decorated by the spectacular mountains. After that, we join Highway 2 and continue riding until we see many roof-colored houses blending with peaceful nature, meaning that we have arrived in Ha Giang. Today’s ride could be the best part of the whole motorbike ride in Northern Vietnam. Before getting to Tay village, where we will spend the night, our crew stops in Ha Giang city for a while to ask permission for the motorbike tour to Dong Van Plateau and border areas in the next days.

At the waterfall’s foot are the clear surface of the Quay Son river, illuminating mountains and clouds.
