On this tour we explore one of the most fascinating motorcycle loops one can imagine – the Northern Ha Giang Loop. There is nothing ‘standard’ when venturing out on these roads and there is no ‘standard’ way how to put the roads together or what sights to explore more in depth. It all comes down to what one wish to put priority on, interest, seasons and driving skills. On this tour there is the possibility to include some shorter ½ trekking if that is of interest.
For those interested in photography this tour progresses at a space where there is more time for these opportunities both during the day of driving and with time when arriving for the afternoon final stop.
The tour will make sure to cover the common highlights of the loop such as Heaven’s Gate, the Highland of Stone, the Fairy Hills, Dong Van, the Ma Pi Leng mountain pass and the backroads of the spectacular inner Ha Giang mountains. The tour would also give opportunity to cherry-pick exploration of further sights without stress such as visits of the Lung Khuy Cave, Lung Tam female weaving cooperative.
Possibility to self-drive or to ride pillion (behind guide/driver). If self-driving, we recommend sound prior motorcycling experience.
Accommodation will normally be a mix of ethnic minority homestay and hotel (choice of doing all nights in homestay).
