Ha Giang Motorbike Tour in 12 Days

riders from all over the world to come and discover this wild and remote area of Vietnam. You ride on all types of roads (from flat and smooth to gravel and bumpy), dirt tracks and jungle paths. Any road could easily turn into a dirt road when it rains. The spectacular view of cloudy mountains is a great memory from a motorcycle trip. On this specific trip you skirt along the Vietnam/China border, starting in Hanoi to Nghia Lo, Than Uyen and Sapa in Northwest Vietnam and continue to the most beautiful part of the trip in Ha Giang, Dong Van and Bao Lac before descending on Highway 4 to Cao Bang, Quang Uyen and Lang Son. If you return via Ba Be, the trip will be reduced by one day but then you miss the historical Highway 4. This trip is the most popular motorbike tour we provide in North Vietnam. Just tell us your time frame and we will get back with a proposal and hopefully something works out.

Detail Itinerary

Day 1: Hanoi Motorbike Tour – Nghia Lo (~250 km, ~7 h)

Before the ride, it takes 30 minutes to double check the bikes and insure that we have all necessary tools and equipment to guarantee maximum fun. We head out of Hanoi skirting along Red River to Son Tay and then head up the mountain to Nghia Lo. The road is easy and flat from Hanoi to Thanh Son, from Thanh Son to Thu Cuc and then Ba Khe to Nghia Lo is beautiful, snaking the foot of Hoang Lien Range. Nghia Lo is a big mountain town where we stop for the night.

Wild and bumpy road with Lung Lo Pass as the first challenge. The next one is the higher Khau Pha Pass. We ride through the Mu Cang Chai massif, almost as high as the Fansipan. From the top, it offers one of the most beautiful views of North Vietnam. The ride is challenging but very rewarding.

Night in a hotel.

The area of Than Uyen is mainly populated by Flower H’mong and Dzao people. Then direction Sapa. Easy track for 100 km and asphalted mountainous road for the last 40 km. Stay in Sapa and you will find out the reason Sapa is one of the most popular places for tourists in Vietnam.

The drive from Sapa to Bac Ha takes ~3 hours, down from Sapa to Lao Cai (34 km), a border city where we can take photos with China as the background. After lunch, ride up to Bac Ha (70 km) with stunning landscape. Overnighting in Bac Ha.

After breakfast, ride on the track to Xin Man and on many small/back roads with scenic mountain views before joining the main road heading up to Ha Giang where we stop for the night and apply for a permit.

After getting the permit to ride in border areas at Ha Giang’s Immigration Police, we ride on small challenging mountain roads (but incredibly beautiful) on the land of colorful mountain hill-tribes.

Head up the Ma Pi Leng Pass. Here is yet another amazing place, with cloudy mountain ranges and the poetic Nho Que river winding off in the distance. Ride on a zig-zag track until Dong Van, a remote area and meet the hard-working local people here. It is inspiring to see how they survive as they manage live in the rocks. When we reach town we will have some extra time to wonder the ancient streets lined with H’mong homes of clay bricks and tiles roofs built centuries ago.

The road is still under construction and tracks what make the ride relatively long in spite of few kilometres. The landscape is among the most beautiful of Vietnam, and the slow tempo is only more appreciable.

We cross the wild regions of the mythical province of Ha Giang. Stop for the night at Bao Lac, the ethnic crossroad of Northeast Vietnam. Many other ethnic groups on the two sides of the border meet at the market every Sunday.

Beautiful ride down to Cao Bang province. Few passes from where you can dominate the area. The road is easy but there are many blind curves. We can stop very often for photos. All together, stop for drinks and food it should be an 8-hour journey. Stay in a hotel.

Ride from Cao Bang to Lang Son on the famous historical Highway 4. We will have time to discover this city which has become a big trading post between China and Vietnam. You can shop for cheap Chinese products at the nearby Dong Kinh market.

If time allows do the 8 days trip with one more day to visit Ban Gioc waterfalls, one of the most impress waterfalls in North Vietnam.

Overnight in hotel.

We have a long drive mainly on secondary road, passing many coal mines along the road. We hope you are not covered in dark coal dust when we arrive in Halong City (the new name of Bai Chay).

Relax in the morning to recover from the long ride yesterday. There are two options:

1. Join a group trip at noon. Depart by boat to Halong Bay, start cruise and check in cabins. Lunch on boat, enjoy deluxe Vietnamese set menu. Transfer by tender from boat to Surprising Cave. Enjoy kayaking and swimming, or relaxing on the boat. Dinner served with Vietnamese food.

2. Book a private boat and cruise in Halong Bay. Sleep on boat. This option costs extra and we will let you know the cost if you want this upgrade.

Two options with the cruise:
