Motorbike Tour Pu Luong And Mai Chau 

The motorbike route from Hanoi to Pu Luong and Mai Chau is about 420km, taking you at least three days to come and travel around. There are both tarmac highways and small lanes for you to experience on your motorbike. 

In our plan, we are likely to choose some roads that are less used, which often leads to more scenic landscapes. It is possible to extend the loops in case you have any different destinations to visit. Of course, any traveler can handle this trip without any difficulty. 

We will divide the route into three parts per three days. Let’s get started!

Day 1: Hanoi - Mai Chau

Let’s spend your whole first day in Mai Chau, a breathtaking valley that catches your attention at first sight. You must leave Hanoi and come to the Red River to get there. Then, get through the Black River before going over the Hoa Binh Dam. 

Remember to choose the smaller roads and dirt tracks instead of the main ones to get to this Dam. Follow the side road of the lake, and Mai Chau is waiting for you at the end of the road.

Day 2: Mai Chau - Pu Luong

The route from Mai Chau to Pu Luong is very short, only more than 30km, so this second day of the trip is ideal for you to wander around. It will be best if you enjoy a luxury Pu Luong motorcycle tour

For example, you can take some loops around this nature reserve or explore some remote areas with imposing scenery. What would be better than driving your “friend” to experience a new land you have never seen before?

Moreover, holding a night party at Pu Luong perfectly fits the atmosphere as well. It is time to rest and enjoy the motorbike journey before leaving tomorrow. 

Day 3: Pu Luong - Ha Noi

Pu Luong is 170km from Hanoi, so you have two options to come back home. When you only want to go back to the city center as soon as possible, let’s go on the highway. 

On the contrary, you can follow a more winding route to contemplate the surrounding scenery. Rest assured that it only takes you half a day to keep entering the traffic of Hanoi. But it is more like an amazing sightseeing tour when you enjoy the trip until the last minute.
