Cycling Son La and Tuan Giao 3 days

Cycling Son La and Tuan Giao 3 days
This 3 day biking northwest region Vietnam will take you to Son La and Tuan Giao. Begin the tour with a car transfer out of Hanoi to Mai Chau where you start cycling on paved roads towards Son La. You mostly cycle on paved roads with many up and downhill ride. Sometimes you get off the main, paved roads taking small, single dirt track biking trails leading to remote hill tribe villages. Taking this 3-day mountain biking tour, you enjoy the beautiful scenery, the wild nature of the less travelled north western Vietnam. You meet up with lots of ethnic groups during your bicycle tours including the Thai, the Xa Pho, the H’mong.

Day 1 Ha Noi Biking to Son La (L,D)
Morning coach departure to transport you to Son La, your starting point for seven days of cycling adventure. The scenery along the way will whet your appetite for what’s in store. Plenty of stops are scheduled along the way and a great opportunity to get to know your fellow cyclists. We spend the night in Son La town.

Day 2: Son La Biking to Tuan Giao (B,L,D)
Cycle Son La to Tuan Giao (90 km). A stunning day of cycling through a region populated by the Black Thai mountain people. An early climb in wild rugged terrain gradually transforms into a meander through cultivated crops and friendly villages. A late afternoon climb will reward you with mountain vistas that go on forever and a final exhilarating descent to Tuan Giao. O/N in Tuan Giao.

Day 3: Tuan Giao - Lai Chau. Back to Hanoi (B, L)
Once out of Tuan Giao the road deteriorates as we take a spectacular back road to Lai Chau. We cycle past rice fields and bananas plantations as we pass through small minority villages of Red Hmong and Kho Mu. There are two hard climbs today the first starts after 50km with a 5km ascent but the second, and most challenging comes at the end of this stunning day, with an 8km strength-sapping climb. All this hard work is easily forgotten as we finish the day with a stunning descend of 18km on a winding road into this lush valley of Lai Chau we our car will pick you up for a 300 km drive back to Hanoi. We arrive in Hanoi in the early evening.
