Giới thiệu

The northern region of Vietnam is a captivating mosaic of landscapes, and our 'Big Loop' tour, spanning 6 days and 5 nights, delves into the heart of this diverse terrain. This adventure covers three iconic destinations, beginning with the enchanting Ba Be Lake. Nestled amidst high limestone mountains and pristine jungle, this freshwater lake, with its border between Vietnam and China, promises to stun every visitor.

The journey continues to the awe-inspiring Ma Pi Leng mountain pass, an unparalleled marvel among Vietnam's mountain roads. With 20 kilometers of winding paths precariously hanging on the mountainside, the views at every bend are nothing short of breathtaking.

This tour involves longer days on the bike, demanding both stamina and experience, particularly for those who choose to self-drive. Whether riding pillion behind our expert guide or taking control yourself, we strongly recommend extensive prior motorcycling experience for those opting to self-drive.

Accommodations on this adventure are a mix of ethnic minority homestays and hotels, providing a rich immersion into local culture. Join us for an exhilarating journey through the spectacular landscapes of northern Vietnam, featuring the 'Big Loop' experience encompassing Ba Be Lake, Cao Bang, and Northern Ha Giang in just 6 days and 5 nights!

Đánh giá Tour

My 1 week full experience in northern Vietnam was great

Ha Giang is still the most worth going destination, but I chose a tour that combines with Cao Bang area, beautiful waterfalls, and majestic roads. The tour guide helped me have a safe trip and many memorable experiences
