Our first riding day is not difficult at all but it is quite long. We do have time to take some detours to get on more rugged roads or stop off at viewpoints or sights. We also have time to stop off and chat with the locals and, if lucky, visit any local markets that are being held in the area. We start out on flat terrain but quickly ascend up onto the Ha Giang Plateau and need to decide if we take the shortcut or go through the forest. We end in Yen Minh town where we stay in a local run homestay and eat in the local market.

This is a short hop, of only 50km, on the main road but we do not take the main road. We head off onto the smaller roads and take little detours so that we can see what is going on in the villages. We may find that some roads are blocked but we an always get around that. This is why having plenty of time and only a few Km to go pays off. We stay in a large hotel tonight where we can clean up and relax in style.

This is a very short route and that allows us time to get up late, visit a few sites such as the skywalk or the fortress and still make it to Meo Vac in time for tea. A very relaxed day which has a little more sightseeing than riding. It’s worth it but we can also choose to explore the dirt tracks in the area if that is preferred.

Another long day today so we need to be rested and ready to drive. Again, we can choose the easy tarmac route or the extremely technical mountain path route. They really are chalk and cheese. We pass through Mau Due and then on to Du Gia where we stay at a luxurious homestay serving wonderful food. It is an easy day tomorrow so perhaps let your hair down a bit.

We are under no pressure to make the distance today as Ha Giang is only a short way away. We can choose to lay in, explore the area or get back to Ha Giang and look around there. The first half of the route back is more scenic mountain driving but then we need to get on the main road again so it’s good to just get it done. We can eat in Ha Giang before dropping off our bikes and then getting our bus back to Hanoi.
