Vietnam Central: Cycling The Truong Son Mountains
Extending south of Hanoi is the Annamite Mountain Range, known in Vietnamese as Truong Son. These mountains provide a wonderful opportunity for the adventurous cyclist to experience a scenically stunning and at times truly remote thousand kilometre route south of the capital to the wonderfully preserved colonial city of Hoi An. Named after the leader who led the nation to liberty from colonial rule, the relatively new, well surfaced and often amazingly deserted Ho Chi Minh road twist and turns, rises and falls though valleys and hills. It crosses plateaus runs through bamboo forests and offers stunning views across virgin jungle to the distant South China Sea.
Leaving the bustling capital we overnight in a rural home stay, sleep in dusty border towns, spend our rest day in a national park and visit cities and villages until finally we reach our destination, the pastel colours, crumbling textures and wonderful inhabitants of the stunning World Heritage town of Hoi An.
