Day 4 : Than Uyen – Sapa.
Day 5 : Sapa – Vu Linh.
Day 6 : Vu Linh - Hanoi.

Day 1: Hanoi - Mai Chau. 150 km, ~5 hours
Leaving Hanoi and breaking out of the delta plains we pass through endless limestone karst scenery as we travel south through country and extensive farming lands comprising a sea of paddy fields split by tree-lined roads. After lunch, we strike the northwest and over two passes, finally dropping down to the mountain valley settlement of Mai Chau. Here we stay overnight with friends of the White Thai minority in a traditional stilt house. In the evening, after feasting, we can enjoy a cultural show of Thai dancing and a range of special local liquors. Overnight in Mai Chau.

Day 2: Mai Chau – Phu Yen. 185 km, ~6 hours (B)
We backtrack on the main a few kilometres before embarking on a new road which drops down the side of a huge valley, steadily falling all the way back down to the Black River Reservoir. The 50 kilometres route has plenty of challenging surface and is prone to landslides. Much of the area is inhabited by Kinh and both Black and White Thai ethnicities. Depending on time we can complete another side road which rises up the opposite side of the valley, offering impressive views over the area on a clear day. Just before the reservoir we breach a final steep ascent and pass by communes of Dao people, before the descent to the banks of the reservoir and a ferry crossing. Once across we follow the banks of the reservoir past village all relocated before the flooding of the valley. On easy dirt road we approach the delta settlement of Phu Yen, set in the middle of a vast valley floor of paddy fields. Overnight in Phu Yen.

Day 3: Phu Yen – Nghia Lo – Than Uyen. ~ 200 km, ~ 7 hours (B)

Mountain road, the first part from Phu Yen to Ba Khe via Lung Lo pass is track and the rest is sealed road. Ride through rural areas with beautiful rice field along the wild and bumpy roads. We go through the Mu Cang Chai massif, almost as high as the Fansipan: From the top, we have one of the most beautiful views of North Vietnam.

Day 4: Than Uyen – Sapa, ~ 120 km, ~ 3 hours (B)
Today we head straight towards the main Fansipan Mountain range. The massive mountain range dominates the road until finally we must make a splendid climb up from Binh Lu and up to the top of the highest road pass in Vietnam (Tram Ton Pass). Crossing into Lao Cai Province at over 2000m the views looks out over the main range for miles and miles, before we descend to the mountainous Sa Pa valley. Sleep in Hoang Long Hotel.

Day 5: Sapa - Vu Linh, ~200 km, ~7 hours, (B)
We start from Sapa and ride to Luc Yen for lunch then take a small paved road along Thac Ba Lake to Vu Linh. The welcome is exceptional and we hope you will not be too much tired. Homestay.

Day 6 : Vu Linh - Hanoi, ~180 km, ~6 hours, (B)

After breakfast we cruise southeast on Highway 2 and then branch off to the sleepy town of Xuan Duong. We follow the edge of the Red River along the dyke, almost to the point where it merges with the Black River after which they flow together to Hanoi. By now we are very much in the lowlands of the delta plains and the north’s main agricultural areas. Harvest time here is a sea of activity. Crossing the Red River by ThangLong bridge, return to Hanoi on the highway.
