With a seemingly endless succession of passes and plateaus, this ride strikes through breathtaking mountain scenery populated by hill tribe peoples from many different groups. The ride takes in the famous limestone karst scenery north of Cao Bang, the giant mountains looming over Xin Man, the beautiful Ba Be lake and the stunning Ha Giang province, the most beautiful area in Vietnam. We ride up the highest and most impressive passes in Vietnam and pass hill tribe communities that rarely see outsiders.
