Hanoi to Luang Prabang Mountain Bike Tour

by asiantrailtours.com
(Hanoi,Vietnam)

Hanoi to Luang Prabang Mountain Bike Tour



Itinerary in brief
This is an adventurous, moving on tour through the mountainous north-west provinces of Vietnam and Laos. Luggage transfer and vehicle support will be provided. The tour is suitable for fit, experienced cycling enthusiasts. Vietnam's far North West is undoubtedly the best place to cycle in the country as the roads see virtually no tourists and avoid Vietnam's notorious highways. It wasn't until the late 1990's that travel restrictions were lifted. Starting in Hanoi, we;ll pass through stunning landscapes, amazing karst rock formations, stilted houses with thatched roofs, mountains nestled between limestone outcrops and the highest concentration of hill-tribe people in the country. We'll cross into a remote area of Laos via the newly opened border crossing at Tay Trang. From the small market town of Muang Khua, we'll take a slow boat down the beautiful Nam Ou river before cycling on to World Heritage Luang Prabang, with its beautiful temples and colourful night market. Our route south to Vientiane, the sleepy capital of Laos, is on virtually traffic-free roads. Great cycling and some of the friendliest people in Asia.

The opening in 2007 of the Tay Trang border crossing between Vietnam and Laos has made this exciting tour possible. This is an adventurous, moving on tour through the mountainous north west provinces. Vietnam's far North West is undoubtedly the best place to cycle in the country as the roads see virtually no tourists and avoid Vietnam's notorious highways. Stunning landscape, amazing karst rock formations, stilted houses with thatched roofs, mountains nestled between limestone outcrops and the highest concentration of hill-tribe people in Asia. We enter Northern Laos at Tay Trang. The trip includes a spectacular journey by boat down the Nam Ou River, a day off the bikes in World Heritage town, Luang Prabang with its beautiful temples and colourful night market, and time to explore vibrant Hanoi and Vientiane.

This Cheaper Option is for experienced riders who have great sense of adventure. We make the price cheaper by cutting off the support vehicle.

Nature Reserve of Ngoc Son Ngo Luong 2days , Cao Bang, Vietnam

by asiantrailtours.com
(Hanoi,Vietnam)

Nature Reserve of Ngoc Son Ngo Luong 2days
Code: VNBKT-GTT-25
Itinerary in brief

This is a Green Trail Tours-exclusive trip to discover and tread lightly in a very pristine area. We're talking about an untouched secret garden inhabited by the Muong people. The deep roots of their ethnic culture and their isolated location have contributed to the preservation of what is a cultural and natural treasure. This is what Handspan is all about: using responsible tourism to promote sustainability according to the priorities of the locals themselves.

While it is essential to preserve the treasures here, it is also important to help the community to improve their (very poor) living conditions. Finding this balance is the challenge that we chose to face in partnership with an NGO in charge of nature conservation and livelihood improvement in the reserve. Get ready for a very special tour.

DESTINATIONS

? An indescribably lovely valley nestled in the heart of a tall karst mountain range

HIGHLIGHTS
? Light trekking across fairyland scenery: lush forests, blue rivers, and misty waterfalls in a deep valley surrounded by limestone rock formations, palm trees, and bamboo groves.
? Homestay with a Muong family: simple conditions but a warm welcome.
? Numerous encounters with natural and cultural treasures all along our way.
? 10% of the tour price goes directly into community development projects. Make your holiday a meaningful one

Day 1: Hanoi ? Chieng ? Mu - Sat
Meals: lunch and dinner | Accommodation: homestay

We depart at 8.00am from your hotel to head southwest. The Reserve is actually quite close to Hanoi, we should get there around noon time. The car stops at the headquarters where we will meet some forest rangers and have a brief explanation about the nature conservation and livelihood improvement efforts taking place. We then are transferred to a local restaurant in Chieng village where we have lunch.

The real rapture starts after lunch; from Chieng we head down into the valley to reach Mu village. We take our time to stroll around the village and have a break near the cascade of the Mu waterfalls. A bit more gentle walking across the terraced rice fields brings us to Sat village to settle down in a cozy homestay there. After a warm welcome there's time for relaxing in the stream by the house while dinner is prepared and the sun slowly sets.

Day 2: Sat ? Mu ? Khay ? Mon - Chieng - Hanoi
Meals: breakfast and lunch | Accommodation: N/A
We start early today to walk back to Mu village by another trail and then head to Khay and Mon villages in one of the most beautiful parts of the Reserve. As we walk, we'll journey from quiet and wild natural areas into unusually dynamic villages alive with vivid sounds and scenes of life. This is your chance to really breathe in an atmosphere quite different from the one we usually know at home. We promise your guide will provide opportunities for numerous encounters with locals as you learn that these people are poor only in technology, but have an immense wealth of human knowledge about how to live together happily. We will share lunch with a family in Mon village before some motorbike taxis bring us back to Chieng village. Time for refreshments in a local restaurant before the drive back to Hanoi.

Included
? 10% of your tour cost is reinvested in the project
? Accommodation
? Meals as specified in the program
? Water during the trek
? Travel in an appropriate air-conditioned vehicle with an experienced driver
