Day 1: Hanoi – Ba Be. ~250 km, ~8 h.

Today is the first day of this Northeast Vietnam 5 days motorbike tour. 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 hour.

In general, it’s quite a long ride but easy (early departure is better) from Hanoi to Ba Be (250 km). Ba Be is a nice stop and it is good to arrive the first day to have a full day (of the second) day there. However, if you feel like resting before, it is all the time possible to stop in Na Khan (~50 km before Ba Be). Na Khan is our new discovery, a village of Tay people lost in the middle of the primitive forest. Mr. Lo, the chief of the village will welcome us to his house.

Day 2: Ba Be. Boating.

Easy boating on the lake and river. Then go to the 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 lunch and dinner. Down the waterfall, we could visit the village and a small school (only a few pupils during the summer). Finally, we propose to stay in the stilt house of forest guards.
