Overview

Book
This classic 'out there' cycling adventure takes us through Indochina's most spectacular mountain scenery, close to Vietnam's border with China. Starting in Hanoi we take the overnight sleeper train to Sapa, a former colonial hill station close to the Chinese border. We spend a couple of days cycling around its beautiful valleys before we set off on a long traverse of some pretty wild country, that will eventually take us into Laos.

Beyond the Tram Ton Pass (2000m), the highest road pass in Vietnam, we cross into a land known to the local Hmong people as 'beyond the clouds', with our route snaking its way between lofty passes and steeply terraced river valleys. Staying in a succession of traditional towns we'll discover the 'Montagnards', the amazingly colourful minority tribes that continue to make their living amongst these high valleys and villages. We end our Vietnam journey at the remote and historical town of Dien Bien Phu. Crossing into the mountainous northern part of Laos, we will find ourselves in a country only recently emerging from its turbulent past, where it will feel as if we are riding back in time. Unused to meeting foreign tourists, the Laotians retain a rare and innocent charm. Here we mix our biking with a traditional longboat journey down the Ou River. Our adventure ends in Luang Prabang, where we can celebrate amongst the faded French Colonial elegance of this most atmospheric of Asian cities. This amazing holiday offers a unique opportunity to ride across the northern border of SE Asia.
