This tour offers real  challenging  mountain bike Vietnam

Calling all thrill-seeking mountain bikers! This 5-day tour is packed with challenging climbs, technical off-road riding, and stunning scenery. Immerse yourself in the local culture and diverse landscapes as you conquer single-track trails and scenic paved paths. Don’t miss this opportunity to push your limits and experience the best of mountain biking!

Day 1: HaNoi  – Mai Chau (57 km) (Meal:  D)

Our adventure begins with a scenic drive from Hoa Binh to Cao Phong, passing through charming villages tucked away amidst rolling hills. As we climb to a higher plateau, lush coffee and tea plantations unfurl before us, painting a vibrant tapestry of greens. After a delicious lunch at Baixang, we hop on our bikes and continue our journey towards the heart of the Mai Chau valley. This afternoon, we’ll reach our home for the night – a traditional homestay nestled within a village of the welcoming Thai minority. Immerse yourself in the local culture and unwind with the gentle rhythm of rural life.

Day 2: Mai Chau- Mocchau. (+- 60km ) (Meal: B)

 After a hearty breakfast, we saddle up for a 16km ride to Baixang. But hold on tight, because the real adventure begins here! Leaving the paved roads behind, we’ll tackle 40km of off-road tracks (car track), weaving through vibrant rice fields and soaking up the raw beauty of the countryside. Be prepared for two epic climbs: the first, a 3km ascent starting after 17km, and the second, a truly strength-sapping 15km climb that’ll test your limits before rewarding you with a stunning downhill descent straight to our Moc Chau hotel. This is a day you won’t forget, a true test of your endurance and a triumph of the spirit!

Dinner and overnight in Hotel

Day 3: Moc Chau- Maichau  (+- 65km ) (Meal: B,D)

Our journey kicks off with a 10km cycling from Moc Chau, whisking us to the majestic HuaTat pass. From here, we embark on a thrilling downhill adventure on a mix of jeep tracks and single tracks (around 45km). Immerse yourself in the stunning scenery as you navigate through one of Vietnam’s most beautiful terraced rice fields, a tapestry of emerald green carved into the mountainsides.

After a delicious local lunch, we hop back on our bikes for a diverse ride along dirt tracks and paved trails. We’ll weave through charming Thai villages, their vibrant colors and warm smiles adding another layer to the experience. As we cross rice paddies bathed in the golden afternoon sun, you’ll truly feel the rhythm of rural life. Finally, we reach our cozy homestay in Mai Chau, where you can relax and reflect on the day’s unforgettable experiences.

Day 4: MaiChau – PuLuong (+- 50km ) Meal: B, D)


Fuel up with breakfast before embarking on an unforgettable journey from Co Luong to Pho Doan via hidden backroads. No support vehicle today, just pure cycling adventure! Prepare to be awestruck by vibrant rice fields and verdant banana plantations as you weave through charming Muong and Thai minority villages.

Two challenging climbs await: the first, a 3km ascent starting just 1km into the ride, will test your legs. But save some energy, because the real showstopper arrives later. Brace yourself for a strength-sapping 5km climb as the finale, rewarding you with breathtaking panoramic views before the glorious descent on a winding trail leading you straight into Hieu village.

This is a day you won’t soon forget, a test of your endurance and a celebration of the stunning Vietnamese countryside.

We’ll weave through charming Thai villages, their vibrant colors and warm smiles adding to the charm. As we cross rice paddies bathed in the afternoon sun, feel the rhythm of rural life and soak in the stunning scenery.

Following a gentle river upstream, the ride may seem deceptively flat – but the true magic lies in the tranquility and the chance to truly connect with nature.
