Northern Highlands Tour
Lang Son, Quang Uyen, Cao Bang, Ba Be, Bao Lac, Meo Vac, Dong Van, Ha Giang, Coc Pai, Bac Ha, Lao Cai. (10+ Days)
The Northern Highlands Tour is a motorbike adventure that starts in the lush lowland delta’s surrounding Hanoi, with green fields of rice, lakes and waterfalls and slowly climbs up and onto the rugged rocky plateau’s bordering China’s Yunnan Province before turning West to some of the highest passes and deepest gorges in Vietnam, most of which have been farmed into beautiful ribbons of rice terracing by generations of the local ethnic minority tribes.
The riding is everything you can imagine, from buffalo trails to mile upon mile of perfectly smooth asphalt, whatever your choice. A few of the great stops along the way include Ban Gioc border Waterfall, the largest fresh water lake in Vietnam- Ba Be Lake, H’mong Palaces, Textile markets and much much more.
The Northern Highlands Tour truly is a journey back in time to areas only recently accessible to foreigners
This tour as with all tours can be changed to suit the group, with everything from winding small mountain roads and paths to the full off-road experience with river crossings and buffalo trails. The routes are flexible and can be changed at a moments notice, depending on what you’d like or enjoying the most. The routes change through the year, depending what there is to see each season and we’ll often take a route in the opposite direction to take advantage of the best weather forecast or season.
Our accommodation will be a mix of Hotels ,where we can walk into town for dinner to taste some local specialties and Vietnamese stilt houses where the families will put on a delicious spread of home cooked dishes.
