Day 1: Ha Giang ~ Yen Minh

The first Ha Giang Motorbike Tour takes quite a long time. The group of riders starts to ride on flat terrain and then head to the Ha Giang rocky plateau. You must decide whether to take a shortcut or go through the forest to get to Yen Minh town. 

Single track around Yen Minh Pine Forest

One interesting place you should visit in Yen Minh is the pine forest. Pine forest stretches for some kilometers on low hills. From there, you can enjoy the fresh and cool air. 

Moreover, the view from the hill to the downside is so wonderful. The roofs looming behind the mountains and green grass creates a peaceful and picturesque landscape. 

Day 2: Yen Minh ~ Dong Van

It would be best to ride to Dong Van on small back-roads rather than main roads. You can observe villages and local people on the way to Dong Van. The overnight place is a large hotel where you can relax after a long day. 

Wondering what to explore in Dong Van? Here are fascinating things you can try to do there! The ride today offers the best Ha Giang Motorbike Tours.

Epic view from Ma Pi Leng pass down to Nho Que river

Architecture is one of the highlights when you visit ancient Dong Van street. Along the street, you can see houses with red brick and the roof of yin yang tiles.  

Besides, destinations such as Ma Pi Leng Pass and the Nho Que river are worth visiting. Once you have arrived at this place, you can take part in some activities such as conquering the pass or taking a boat tour on the turquoise blue river. 

Note that conquering the pass may be dangerous. Consider it before you decide to do so. 

Day 3: Dong Van ~ Meo Vac

Dong Van is near Meo Vac, so getting here does not require much time and effort. The riders can depart later than the previous day. 

As the travel distance is small, you can spend some time visiting famous places nearby, such as Lo Lo ethnic village, Sum Pun port, and Khau Vai love market. 

Our advice is that you should visit Meo Vac in the spring. During this period of time, you can admire plum blossoms and peach blossoms in full bloom, which is one of the most wonderful views of this place.

The typical specialties in the region are Thang Co, 5-color sticky rice, and grill moss. 

Among these specialties, the majority of tourists consider Thang Co as the “weirdest” dish as it is made from animal organs. Try this dish if you are interested in world cuisine. 

Day 4: Meo Vac ~ Du Gia

You will ride from Meo Vac to Du Gia by either a technical mountain path or tarmac route. It is quite a long distance to travel - 75 km- so you may get slightly tired. Do not worry, as the hotel and accompanying services are always ready if you need them. 

After a short break at the homestay, continue the trip - head to famous places such as Di Gia waterfall or Du Gia National Park. 

Du Gia waterfall is one of hidden gems in Ha Giang. Riders always enjoy swimming in the small blue lagoon at this waterfall.

To get to Du Gia waterfall, travel 5 km from the town. Here, you will see the stunning view of natural scenery and swimming pools.
