(Dinner included) Day 2 : Hanoi – Mai Chau (B, L, D) After breakfast we will head North west to Hoa Binh town.

(Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included) Day 4 : Son La – Pha Din – Dien Bien Phu - (Cycling around 70km) One hour by bus takes us to the top of the Pha Din pass from where you can freewheel your bike down through stunning, rural scenery where limestone mountains rise out of the valley floor. Our night stop at Dien Bien Phu is the site of the longest and most ferocious battle of the Indochina war (1954) where the French were defeated and forced to withdraw from Vietnam. This was one of the most important battles of the 20th century. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included) Day 5 : Short ride day in Dien Bien Phu Today we take a short ride around the historical town of Dien Bien Phu.

(Breakfast included) Day 6 : Dien Bien Phu – Muong Lay - (Cycling around 80km) Today we cycle along the windy roads that snake through the beautiful countryside that characterizes this part of the country. At times the roads are steep but the stunning panoramas afforded us more than compensate for any hardships (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included) Day 7 : Muong Lay – Paso - (Cycling around 80km) After breakfast we cycle through more magnificent mountain scenery en route to Paso. Along the way we pass through several different minority villages and you will be in awe of the toughness of these people in terms of maintaining traditions and seemingly untouched by modern influences. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included) Day 8 : Paso– Sapa - (Cycling around 70km) Today is a hard day as we continue on winding our way through the scenic hills and ascend the Tram Ton pass (2120m), one of the highest mountain passes in Vietnam, to reach our finishing line in Sapa (1600m).
