Let’s go with Local Tour Vietnam Travel to explore what makes it attractive!
The whole of northern Vietnam offers so much to discover. While all mountainous it also pres- ents a lot of variations in landscape and sights to take in. On our ‘Big Loop’ we ensure to cover three of the most famous sights and areas – the Ba Be Lake (entrancing fresh-water lake surrounded by the high limestone mountains and primeval jungle and retains its beauty year-round), the Ban Gioc waterfall (this 30 m high and 200 m wide fall on the boarder of Viet- nam/China will stun any visitor) and the Ma Pi Leng mountain pass (without doubt the most astonishing mountain road in Vietnam. 20 km of winding road that formally hangs on the moun- tain side with jaw dropping views at every bend) This tour presents some longer days on the bike so both stamina and experience (especially if self-driving) is a requirement. Possibility to self-drive or to ride pillion (behind guide/driver). If self-driving, we recommend extensive prior motorcycling experience. Accommodation will be in a mix of ethnic minority homestay and hotels
