Booking code of this tour: NE401
Day 1: Hanoi – Na Khan. ~180 km, ~8 h.
Today is the first day of this Challenging Northeast in 4 days by bike. Before starting to ride, we will have a short briefing to let you know about the rules. In addition, the guide will show you how to understand him by his body language. We start around 9.30am after the rush hours.
In fact, today’s ride is a quite a long ride but easy (so early departure is better) from Hanoi to Na Khan 180 km. In general, the road is sealed all the way until Bac Kan. However, the last part from Bac Kan to Na Khan is wild and little bumpy. Na Khan is a Tay village, lost in the middle of the primitive forest. Mr. Lo, the chief of the village will welcome us in his house.
Day 2: Na Khan – Ba Be. ~50 km, ~2 h.
A short ride from Na Khan to Ba Be on a bumpy road. Then have lunch at our captain’s house (Mr. Dang, we call him Zi Dang). Easy boating on the lake and river. Go to market (if it is the day you arrive). Stop at a waterfall, beautiful swim etc. Ong pirate, the chief of Dau Dang waterfall where we enjoy dinner. Down the waterfall, we could visit the village and a small school (only a few pupils during the summer). We propose to stay in the stilt house of forest guards.
Day 3: Ba Be – Quang Hoa. ~170 km, ~8 h.
Cross Ba Be lake to come back to our captain’s house. Beautiful ride up to Cao Bang province. There are few passes from where you can dominate the area. The road is easy but there are many curves. While riding we can stop a lot. Altogether, with stops for drinks and food, it should be an 8-hour journey. Then ride 1 more hour to reach the beautiful village of Quang Hoa, in the middle of a mountain cirque. This is the territory of Nung An people. Spend the night at our friend’s house.
Day 4: Quang Hoa – Hanoi. ~300 km, ~9 h.
Ride from Quang Hoa to Hanoi via Cao Bang, Na Phac, Bac Can and Thai Nguyen. The road is asphalted almost of the way and it takes 9 hours to ride back to Hanoi.
We try to arrive in Hanoi before 5pm to avoid rush hours. Otherwise, you should be good with city traffic from the experience you got over the last days.
