Our first riding day is not difficult at all and we can take plenty of 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. It will be cooler up here. We stay that evening in a local homestay run by the Dao people.

This day takes us along the valley floor before ascending into the Yen Minh pine forest. It’s a great feeling to be surrounded by the mountains on either side. We can drive through the forest or take a newly constructed shortcut across quite barren hills. I guess the choice depends on how we are feeling after feasting the evening before. We can stay in a regular hotel or the small group of local homestays that has been developed and we can eat in the homestay or the local market for a bit of colour.

Today we get off the main route and the tourist trail and head for the border with China. We do not cross as this is dangerous but we skirt along some hilltop paths until we can come down back to the main road. We can take the 9 turn pass and also get off the road a bit more if there is time before getting to our H’Mong run homestay.

We pass Sa Phin Market and the H’Mong King’s Palace on route to Lung Cu Flagpole, which is the northernmost point of Vietnam. The road is mountainous and winding but easy to drive. We are also very very close to China again and we have to look out for overzealous border guards. We can get off the main road on the way to Lung Cu where we can climb the flagpole. Again, we stay with local people this time Lo Lo.

It is about 10km back to the 4C from where we head to Dong Van. This is only a short drive so we have time to spend in Lung Cu, re-visit Sa Phin if it is market day or to see the sights in and around Dong Van. We stay in a hotel here and it is a chance to have a good hot shower and get some clothes washed. We can eat in one of the restaurants in the old market.
