Mountain  Biking in Vietnam
 
 

Mountain  Biking

This wonderful itinerary takes you over the Tram Tom ("Heaven's Gate") Pass to explore the other side of Mt. Fansipan and the Hoang Lien Mountain Range. Often when Sa Pa is shrouded in cloud and fog, this side is clear and blue. Descend through one of ’s most picturesque and inspiring valleys. The partially rocky road meanders along the base of the mountain range past old growth forest and through the villages of Thai, H’Mong and Lu ethnic minority people. This area sees few tourists, so expect plenty of curious faces and smiling children shouting “Hello!".

Early arrive in Lao Cai. The bus ride uphill to Sa Pa takes  an hour, giving you a glimpse of the stunning vistas and impressive rice terraces.  After breakfast, gear up for your exciting ride.  8h30 - It’s a tough climb out of Sa Pa to Heaven's Gate, so your support vehicle will transfer you to the starting point at the Silver Waterfall. A 3km climb  over the stunning Tram Ton Pass (the highest in Indochina ) offers  great views of the Hoang Lien Valley and Fansipan  before a free-wheeling 26km (1.5hrs) glide to Binh Lu Junction. Heading off the main road, ride 20km of occasionally rocky road to Than Thuoc, a charming little tea town where you'll spend the night in a local guesthouse.
(Note: The guest house in Than Thuoc is very basic but clean.)

The support vehicle will transfer you up a steep mountain pass to the starting point to glide 20kms down to Than Uyen through valleys of old growth forest, tea plantations and rice paddies. After lunch in Than Uyen, spend a wonderful afternoon exploring single track trails and visiting villages of local ethnic minority hill tribes, including the interesting Lu with their distinctively black teeth. Arrive back in Than Uyen for dinner and overnight in the local guesthouse.

Day 4. Than Uyen_ Van Ban_ Lao Cai, night train to Hanoi, (B/L/D), biking 40 km 

A 40km ride around the other side of the spectacular Muong Kim Valley provides plenty of time to stop and take photos of the local sights.
