Day 1Northeast Motorcycle Tour from Hanoi to Ba Be Lake

Ba Be Lake is a fantastic place to start our first day. The lake has many interesting geology and landscapes to discover with a variety of flora and fauna. The caves, valleys, lakes, rivers, and waterfalls create a picturesque spectacle. Running away from metropolitan traffic jams, we will take small roads to begin the journey. Go straight to Ba Be along the old National Highway 3. Stop at Cho Don for lunch. 35km from Bac Kan to the west, Cho Don has six national historical relics, four provincial historical ones, and 16 inventoried ones. If you’re not out of energy after that, try out your riding skill with a moderate off-road to the north. Arrive in Pac Ngoi at 5 p.m.; it’s a village of Tay people who lies beside the lake. Have dinner and stay overnight at a house in the village that offers a great view of Ba Be National Park.

Day 2Northeast Motorcycle Road Trip from Meo Vac to Bao Lac

Head to Bao Lac, a seemingly remote yet full-of-mystery land in northeast Vietnam with many small rivers and streams perching on the vertical mountain flanks. After having lunch in Bao Lac, we’ll make our way to Meo Vac. For those who yearn for an off-road conquer through springs or crossing the bamboo hanging bridges, the route from Bao Lac to Meo Vac is the best way. There are two options for you to choose from. One is to travel 85km from Bao Lac to Meo Vac– a charming district capital surrounded by towering mountains. Go straight to the district for a sooner rest. The other is to ride through a 45km off-road trail that leads to Khau Vai Love Market – the most exciting and raw ethnic market in the mountains of northern Vietnam, which is held only once a year. Spend a night in a hotel or a homestay in Meo Vac.

Day 3Northeast Road Trip from Dong Van - Lung Cu - Ha Giang

Make tracks for the rugged Ma Pi Leng Pass, which provides one of the most beautiful Northern mountain sceneries and is also one of the four great passes in Vietnam. One side of the pass is the deep gulf, and the other is the towering cliff. It is such a challenge for adrenaline junkies. We will drop in Lung Cu- the northernmost point in Vietnam, where the famous Flag Tower or the H Mong King Palace stands. After lunchtime, we roam along the winding tracks with the stunning natural setting on both sides before setting foot on Ha Giang. We will indeed offer professional bikers a superbly great off-road trail in Vietnam. Reach Ha Giang at 5 in the afternoon. Here, choose between a hotel or a bungalow for your accommodation. Yet, a homestay is a better choice to feel our excursion deeper

Day 4Northeast Vietnam Motorcycle Road Trip from Ha Giang to Xin Man

Today we will experience one of the most imposing off-road pathways in Northern Vietnam. September to May is the best period to get onto two wheels along the pathway. During this time, you can have a chance to eye-witness the absolute beauty of rice terraces and the mighty forested mountains. Thong Nguyen is where we have lunch on the 4th day. Subsequently, take an inter-district road to Xin Man, well-known for magnificent terraced fields and lovely buckwheat flower flowers. Being one of the poorest districts and the most remote area of Ha Giang Province, Xin Man has an untouched beauty of peaceful and majestic mountains, poetic and fresh scenery, and contains many cultural and historical sediments related to Tay People. The colors of the rice harvest, rain, and buckwheat fields covering the region change all year seasonally round, which creates an alluring attraction for tourists and backpackers alike.

Day 5Motorcycle Trip from Xin Man - Bac Ha - Lao Cai - Sa Pa

Bac Ha Market and Sa Pa are the two most outstanding destinations of the 6-day tour to Northeast Vietnam on the back of a motorbike. As one of the biggest and most renowned in all of North Vietnam, the market is vivid with bright colors and lavish traditional costumes of the locals. And Sa Pa is the tourism center of the northwest nowadays, whose views are frequently dimmed by a thick mist covering the peaks. However, the town is filled with colors from the local hill-tribe people when it’s cloudy. The town overlooks a fabulous valley hemmed in by lofty mountains. Head towards Lao Cai, halt at the frontier between Vietnam and China for the experience of sipping some coffee while beholding China. Cross the Love road with marvelous views on its sides to reach Sa Pa after lunch. Sleep at a hotel or a homestay.
