We will have some interesting offroad ride through some beautiful villages before heading up to Ha Giang, you will be charmed by the pristine beauty of the wild mountains and the authentic culture of the local ethnic groups the Tay, and the Ha Nhi People.

The Ha Giang roads are intrinsically difficult due to their winding and rocky terrain, but as we zoom in, we get to gaze on the majesty of the plateau. It is another highlight of Ha Giang Motorbike Touring. 

Day 3: Ha Giang to Dong Van 170km 

Today is surely the highlight of this trip. We will have one of the best Vietnam motorbike tours today with amazing view of nature. We will ride on small challenging mountain roads with incredibly beautiful land of colourful mountain hill tribes. We stopp at Quan Ba to watch the vast pine forests and winding slopes. Ride on a zig-zag track until we reach Vuong Family's Residence, 14 km from Dong Van. Vuong’s Family was considered the King of the Hmong People in Dong Van, Ha Giang. Their residence was built in the scenic valley of Sa Phin with Chinese architecture. The whole house was built out of wood and rock only.

The rocks for the buildings were imported from China. Vuong’s Family Residence is a masterpiece. It is in the valley of the heavenly beauty of Sa Phin. This is a remote area, and you can meet the hard-working local people here. It is inspiring to see how they survive as they manage to live in the rocks. When you reach Dong Van town, you will have some extra time to wander the ancient streets lined with H'mong homes of clay bricks and tiles roofs-built centuries ago. 

Day 4: Dong van to Bao Lac/130km  

After enjoying breakfast, you ride your motorcycle 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. It is difficult to find the exact words to describe Ma Pi Leng Pass, located between Dong Van and Meo Vac, near the northernmost tip of Vietnam, as a painting of astonishing beauty and magnificence that captures the eyes of all viewers and nature lovers.

The landscape is among the most beautiful scenery of Vietnam, and the slow tempo is only more appreciable. You ride your motorcycle across the wild regions of the mythical province of Ha Giang, (Meo Vac) is included.  It is inhabited by different ethnic minorities including the H'mong, the King, Tay, and Dzao. Most ethnic groups have maintained their culture untouched by the outside world. enjoy slowly Vietnam motorbike tour on some beautiful mountain passes until Meo Vac where we overnight. 

Day 5: Bao Lac – Ba Be / 160km 

Today must be the best offroad Vietnam motorbike tour. Just after 20km from Bao Lac we turn to narrow and bumpy road with breathtaking view of terrace rice paddies. Especially, we have to cross few rivers instead of riding on some bamboo bridges.

Then you have a beautiful motor ride down to Bac Kan Province, finishing the memorable riding day with lunch in a peaceful village of  the Tay people. nearby Ba be lake. In the afternoon. Take a local boat-ride on the reservoir of Na Hang Hydro Power Factory to a village near by Dau Dang waterfall in Ba Be National Park. 

Day 6: Ba Be National Park to Hanoi, 260 km 

We say farewell to Ba Ba Lake with stunning vistas of lakes, limestone summits, deep evergreen woods, and quiet rivers, avoid the main road for as long as possible we head back towards the Red River Delta, passing through areas inhabited by Hmong, Dao, Tay and Nung minority peoples. A mixture of both challenging track and glorious sealed road all the way back to Hanoi.
