ITINERARY

Day 1Hanoi – Ta Xua Camping

8h30: Our team will begin the journey to discover one of the most attractive pickup¢ tours of BM Travel. We will bid a farewell to Hanoi and head to Ta Xua. Since we use 4×4 trucks, we should choose small roads and dykes to avoid traffic jams.

11h00: We will have a chance to experience a Vietnamese-styled gravel road, running through the forests to Phu Yen town.

12h00: We are supposed to arrive at Phu Yen Town for lunch, then rest to regain strength before conquering some new roads in the afternoon.

13h30: Our team will go through Ong Giap Garden. Here you can stop to snap some impressive pictures, learn some exciting facts about the unique culture of Vietnam. Then we will go on the 10-km off-road tracks which are full of challenges.

15h00: Our pickup trucks will start to join a difficult narrow road to reach the top of Ta Xua.

16h00: Right after reaching Ta Xua pinnacle, we can “hunt” clouds and take as many good photos as we want. Right after that, the group will continue to move to Dinosaur Back Living – one of the famous cloud hunting spots in the Northwest of Vietnam.

17h00: Move to the campsite, the driver and guide will prepare a delicious dinner for us. You can also join in preparing dinner to enjoy the dishes made by yourself.

7h30: Let’s pack up our things and continue this journey. As soon as we get out of Bac Yen town, we will enter a terrifying 80-km off-road with one way in and out only.

This road will lead us through the primitive forest and romantic streams, with a lot of wild and beautiful sceneries.

12h30: We will stop for lunch and snacks.

17h00: Our team gets off the off-road track and turns to Ngoc Chien Hot Spring.

Day 3Ngoc Chien Hot Spring – Sapa

Morning: Nothing is better than enjoying a comfortable hot bath and fresh air in the morning. Prepare yourself because today’s route will not be an easy task.

We can have a memorable breakfast with traditional Northwestern dishes such as sticky rice, smoked meat, etc. Then we will say goodbye to Ngoc Chien and depart for Sa Pa.

On the way, you will admire the pure enchantment of Mu Cang Chai terraced fields, as well as the grandeur of mountain ranges. We can have lunch while watching those heaven-like landscapes.

Moving from Ngoc Chien to Sapa is the best chance for us to visit amazing sites such as Bac Waterfall, the Heaven Gate, or Cat Cat village.

Of course, as we are looking for a sense of adventure, it’s unlikely to miss O Quy Ho Pass – one of the four greatest passes in the whole North. Both the length and danger of the pass make it irresistible in the eyes of adventure seekers.

At night, you are free to wander and explore the romantic beauty of Sapa.

Day 4Sapa – Y Tý – Bắc Hà

The first destination of the day is Y Ty. This means we will have to go for 80 kilometers on a beautiful yet hazardous road. This is because the road is remote and often covered by clouds.

In the rainy season, the challenge is even tougher as we have to pass some rapids where the water is flowing cruelly.

However, the real challenge will begin when you go from Y Ty to Bac Ha. We have to drive our 4×4 trucks on small and steep roads. The sharp bends are also difficult to overcome.

But you will also have a precious opportunity to see immense and gorgeous terraced fields. Another remarkable spot is milestone 92 where the Red River flows into Vietnam. This river has opened up a civilization that forms our country today.

Then we will enter Lao Cai City, check-in at the Ha Khau border gate, and visit the sacred temple nearby. From here, Bac Ha is not far away.

Day 5Bac Ha – Ha Giang

Day 5 is undoubtedly exciting in this 4×4 pickup truck trip. Moving from Bac Ha to Ha Giang, we will behold Hoang Su Phi terraced field – one of the hottest tourist attractions in the whole country.

Another thing that makes the fifth day outstanding is the threat it poses. We will have to drive on tortuous off-road routes on the way to the mountain tops.

From Bac Ha to Ha Giang, we can go on an old 153 road to Coc Pai Town in Xin Man, where the highest market exists in Ha Giang. Another choice is to follow 40-km off-road tracks with countless obstacles.

We will stop at Vinh Quang town for lunch before continuing to follow Highway 2 to Ha Giang. All the long way will become worth it once you see the immense fields full of buckwheat flowers.

Especially Ma Pi Leng Pass, Chieu Lau Thi Peak, or Tay Con Linh Peak are a destination that makes the reputation of this land. To sum up, to have a worthwhile trip, we cannot ignore Ha Giang.
