A great route out to the lesser-visited northern shore of Hoa Binh Lake. We can stop to take in the Hoa Binh dam as well as get on a few smaller dirt tracks. We end up in the hills of Da Bac and then the Pu Luong Nature Reserve. Both areas are quiet and very scenic. This is a tour accessible to all and one that everyone will enjoy.
