Big North Vietnam In 9 Days Motorbiking Tour

nce out of the Red River Delta, which brims with traditional farming activity, we pass through limestone monoliths and into foothills populated by Muong people. We head straight at the main range before breaching a high and beautiful forested pass, which descends into the hidden valley of Mai Chau where we spend the night with friends in a traditional Thai stilt house.
The valley of Mai Chau lies between two rivers: the Da River and the Ma River, which make it very fertile and rich in varied landscapes, medium mountains, forest, lake, rivers, and infinitude of small footpaths, which offer many possibilities of trek. In the valley of Mai Chau and its surroundings are Muong, White Thai, H’mong (in the height), and the Dao who we meet at the markets or in their villages during trekking, boating or while driving.

Beautiful landscape. Valley of wax-tree, native land of lacquer makers in Vietnam.
Song Thao is a very small village lost in the hills on west bank of Black river. The particular thing is that this is the place where we grow lacquer trees to collect the precious substance called lacquer.
We are welcome in the house of our friends. You meet Kinh (ethnic Vietnamese). We propose to stay in the house of the two “uncles”, direct descendant of the ancestor who discovered the property of this tree and the way to use it, about four hundreds years ago (quite recently compared to China who knew about lacquer few thousands years ago).
Drive from Song Thao on the secondary road then Highway 2 until Khanh Hoa; turn right into the bumpy road that leads to Luc Yen. Lunch in Luc Yen. Ride to Vu Linh in about 2 hours around the lake on small road lined by palm trees and scenic mountain views. Vu Linh is a Dzao village and the welcome is exceptional.
You ride from Vu Linh to Na Khan through Thai Nguyen (over 200 km). The road is sealed all the way until Bac Kan and the last part from Bac Kan to Na Khan is wild and little bumpy. Na Khan is a Tay village, lost in the middle of the primitive forest. Mr. Lo, chief of the village will welcome us in his house.
Short drive from Na Khan to Ba Be on bumpy road. Lunch at our captain’s house (Mr. Dang, we call him Zi Dang). Easy boating on the lake and river. Go to market (if it is the day you arrive). Stop at waterfall, beautiful swim etc. Ong pirate, the chief of Dau Dang waterfall where we enjoy dinner. Down the waterfall, we could visit the village and a small school (only few pupils during the summer). We propose to stay in the stilt house of forest guards.
Cross Ba Be lake to come back to our captain’s house. Beautiful ride up to Cao Bang province. Few passes from where you can dominate the area. The road is easy but many curves. We can stop a lot. All together, stop for drinks and food it should be an 8-hour journey. Then ride 1 more hour to reach the beautiful village of Quang Hoa, in the middle of a mountain cirque. This is the territory of Nung An people. Spend the night in our friend’s house.
Having obtained permission from the border police, we make our way through spectacular scenery to Vietnam’s most impressive waterfalls, Ban Gioc waterfall. Weather permitting we can swim right up to where the 50 m high falls hit the river.
Drive from Quang Hoa to Lang Son. Lunch in Lang Son before driving toward Mau Son (~30 km). Mau Son is 1.541 m above sea level and the climate is quite cool. Sleep in Mau Son guesthouse.
Promenade around Mau Son in the morning. Ride down to Lang Son to have lunch. The road is asphalted all the way, and it takes three and half hours to drive back to Hanoi,
