Northeast Vietnam easily makes an imagination to a land spreading along border with China. It’s surrounded by rugged mountains and steep valleys. For such a long time, Northeast becomes dreaming land to ride.
Scattered through the north of Vietnam are pockets of karst on land. The most spectacular scenery is in the far northeast, accessed via the regional capital of Hagiang, some 300 km north of Hanoi. Hagiang is the gateway to the incredible Dongvan Plateau, an area studded with weird karst formations, the heart of this riding. The option of off-road riding brings unique system of single tracks and buffalo routes.
But it’s not the only highlight. There are estimate 20 ethnic minorities in the area. Regularly, they hold a tradition to set up a social event, called flea market or market day. All basic and local ways to trade are shown up there, and you find in nowhere else. Such an amazing opportunity to witness local lifestyle and culture.
Surrounding this region, we do have other phenomenal attraction sites to complete an ideal travel route. This will be counting thousand-curve road of Hoang Su Phi, biggest natural fresh-water lake of Ba Be national park in country, and rugged mountain ranges of Cao Bang in far Northeast.
To encounter all these multi-terrain landscapes, the best way to do is riding a motorcycle, with no doubt.
