Once out of the Red River Delta, which brims with traditional farming activity, we pass through limestone monoliths and into foothills populated by Muong people. We head straight at the main range before breaching a high and beautiful forested pass, which descends into the hidden valley of Mai Chau where we spend the night with friends in a traditional Thai stilt house.
The valley of Mai Chau lies between two rivers: the Da River and the Ma River. Therefore, Mai Chau is very fertile and rich in varied landscapes, medium mountains, forest, lake, rivers, and infinitude of small footpaths and offer many possibilities of a trek. In the valley of Mai Chau and its surroundings are Muong, White Thai, H’mong (in the height), and the Dao who we meet at the markets or in their villages during trekking, boating or while driving.

Today is a long but beautiful ride from Mai Chau to Yen Binh.

Then we will cruise on the lake from west to east, until the Dao village of Vu Linh. In addition, the welcome is exceptional.
Day 3: Vu Linh – Hanoi. ~180 km, ~7 h.
Ride back to Hanoi in 7 hours via Son Tay to avoid the heavy traffic on the main road. In general, the roads are good and sealed most of the way.
