Vietnam Mythical Mountains - Northeast

Tiers of rice terraces fading seemingly to infinity as they drop away through a vast valley, karst pinnacles like those from a chinese water painting, minority people whose way of life and dress is little touched by the outside influences of the global village most of us inhabit; North East Vietnam as such is simply stunning. This tour is all about adventure. From Hanoi we take a classic oriental train journey north to within a few kilometres of the Chinese border from where we explore a region overwhelmed with natural splendour. The cycling is on small quiet roads with challenging climbs and breathtaking descents. We follow valley floors, climb through karst hills and past rice fields, cross passes and explore plateaus. If you desire a bicycle adventure through a Vietnam little visited by outsiders then The Painted Roads NE Vietnam Tour could well be for you.
