Before setting our foot at our final destination Mai Chau, we will have a quick stop at Da Trang and Thung Khe Pass to rest and take some nice shots.

Located on Thung Khe Pass, Mai Chau is known as a small yet beautiful valley that is home to many villages of the Thai ethnic minority. The old stilt houses remain intact and form a population of stilt houses in the valley, creating a signature beauty of Mai Chau. There are few tourist attractions in Mai Chau; it still owns special attractions that include poetic beauty, cool fresh air, unique culture, and typical culinary features.

The first day of the Off-road Vietnam Dirt Bike Tour from Hanoi to Vu Linh via Son La ends with an overnight rest at a lovely homestay in Mai Chau.

Son La is a province in the Northwest region of Vietnam that borders Laos to the south. If traveling to Son La in spring, you will have the chance to admire the beauty of cherry blossoms, plum blossoms, and apricot flowers on the hills and mountains.

Lunch is served at a local eatery as we come closer to Moc Chau valley, Son La. When arriving at Moc Chau, you will be amazed by the immense ever-green tea field on the hillside, known as the largest growing tea area in Vietnam.

After having lunch with delicious local dishes, our next stop will be Pha Din pass, located on National Highway 6, connecting Son La and Dien Bien provinces.

From here, we will have a panorama view of the majestic mountains and immense ever-green forest – a masterpiece of nature. As passing Pha Din, our crew will arrive at Muong Lay. Here, we spend our third night at a local homestay and prepare for the next day.

Day 5Lai Chau to Sapa

Today’s route from Lai Chau to Sapa will surely highlight the 7-day Vietnam dirt bike tour, especially for riders expecting some real challenging off-road tracks, mountain roads, and sharp bends. Be prepared for some roads that are in bad condition. On the way to Sapa, we will cross through one of the four greatest passes in Vietnam named O Quy Ho. With a length of nearly 50 km, O Quy Ho Pass holds the record for the longest pass in Vietnam. The length, altitude, and danger of O Quy Ho make the mountain known unofficially as “king of the Northwest Pass”.

The closer you are to Sapa, the earlier you meet Heaven Gate in Sapa. About 18km from Sapa town center to the North, it is an ideal place for visitors to admire and feel the magnificent and pristine beauty of the Hoang Lien Son range and the Northwest mountain forest. The road to the heavenly gate is craggy with many sharp bends, narrow roads, and cliffs. Although the path is quite dangerous, the heaven gate attracts tourists, especially adventurous riders who want to experience challenging roadways. The 5th night of the 7-day off-road Vietnam dirt bike tour from Hanoi to Vu Linh via Son La will be spent at a standard hotel in Sapa town.
