If experienced riders own dirt bikes from 250cc or ride dirt bikes in your home country or foreign countries before then this is for you. Introduced and tested out in early 2010 and this is, in fact, the most popular routes we ride both for customers and our team. It’s more like an ‘expedition‘ than a tour. This trip pushes way beyond the boundaries of traditional off the shelf ‘motorcycle touring‘.
This is dirt biking at its very best, aimed at experienced riders looking to take it up a notch or two. Here are a few jaw-dropping statistics for you:
– Total distance around 1,500 kilometers
– In excess of a few river and bamboo supported bridge crossings
– Altitude differences between 90 – 2,000 meters above sea level (297 – 6,600 feet)
– Challenging single track trails and quiet roads along Lao and Chinese border.
A trip like this takes from at least 6 days to 16 days! You will see a Vietnam lesser-known. The best areas to ride is Ta Xua and Ngoc Chien in Northwest, roof roads to Sapa, Northeast, and Dong Van GeoPark in Ha Giang. However, if you have fewer days choose Mai Chau, Pu Luong or Phu Yen as the alternative destinations.
Experienced riders skill requirements
A ‘big boys’ dirt bike holiday designed for riders with good to very good off-road experience. These people look for some of the best dirt riding available in South East Asia. Considering the time you will spend on the road you must be able to mix well with other people and be ready to ride as a team. Safety is our concern so ride safe and ride smart!
If you have medical issues or require health support, we would strongly advise not to do this type of trip. In reality, we will not be really near medical stations or big cities. Support can be limited but the fun is more than any motorbike vacation you’ve ever done.
