Day 1: Hanoi- Bac Son

Motorcycle trip northeast Vietnam

The first destination of our 4-day journey is Bac Son Valley - a mountainous district in Lang Son province, 160 km far from the Hanoi capital.

This poetic land has impressed many visitors with its magnificent limestone mountains and green rice fields stretching endlessly.

Riding motorcycle to Bac Son, you definitely cannot miss the top of Na La mountain - a famous sightseeing spot that many travelers love. With an altitude of more than 600m above sea level, the mountain allows you to see Bac Son Valley's whole wonderful natural scenery from the top.

Moreover, this is also a place where you can watch the sunrise and sunset and save memorable photos for your trip.

We will rest at the homestay of the Tay people. Here, you can experience the cultural practices of the local region.

Day 2: Bac Son- Ban Gioc Waterfall- Quang Uyen

Ban Gioc waterfall, Cao Bang, northeast Vietnam

Continuing the journey, we ride to Ban Gioc Waterfall - a place about 100km from Cao Bang city center.

Keep in mind that moving to Ban Gioc Waterfall is quite difficult. Hence, you should best refer to tours like us to be able to enjoy the beauty of the trip.

Ban Gioc waterfall has a majestic and fierce beauty in the rainy season.

Yet, the water flow becomes gentler and calmer in the dry season. This is an ideal time to see Ban Gioc waterfall because it is as beautiful as "sleeping princess in the forest". Each stream of clear blue water pours down. At the foot of the waterfall, there are golden fields, creating poetic scenery.

Visitors can choose to leisurely enjoy the scenery on rustic rafts or go kayaking on the Quay Son River.

Also, you can visit nearby regions such as Nguom Ngao Cave, Pac Bo cave, Lenin stream, etc.

We then return to Quang Uyen and rest here before starting a new moving day.

Day 3: Quang Uyen- Ba Be Lake

Boating on Lake

The road to Ba Be lake is extremely stunning with the typical scenery of the mountains and forests of the North. If you participate in Vietnam Motorbike Tours, this will be an interesting and memorable journey, as the route is quite easy for transportation.

From Cao Bang to Ba Be Lake, it will take about 3 hours to travel on National Highway 3. At Na Phac junction, you turn right onto Highway 279 and then go straight. This road goes through Gio Pass, a famous pass in Bac Kan.

Ba Be Lake is home to the harmony of mountains, forests, and rivers. More impressively, it has a cool mountainous climate so that you can visit the lake all year round.

Apart from experiencing boating on Ba Be Lake, you can also visit Pac Ngoi village, Puong cave, Dau Dang waterfall, etc.

Our crew arrives in the afternoon and rests at the stilt house of the Tay ethnic group here.

Day 4: Ba Be Lake- Hanoi
