Adventure Cycling Hanoi to Luang Prabang

I have just returned from a cycling journey from Hanoi Vietnam to Luang Prabang in Laos. This is an adventurous and moving on tour that passes through the mountainous regions of the Northwest provinces of Vietnam to Luang Prabang in eastern Laos. The adventure cycling Hanoi to Luang Prabang tour is suitable for fit, experienced cycling enthusiasts.

Our adventure started in Hanoi, Vietnam, where we cycled the busy streets and crossed to the other side of the Red River before moving on to Hoa Binh, passing incredible panoramic scenery and enjoying the country life seen along the way. We cycled and rode on stunning mountain trails along the banks of Hoa Binh reservoir, the largest manmade lake in Vietnam and arrived in the sleepy small village of Lac, located in the Mai Chau Valley, and almost exclusively inhabited by a White Thai tribal group.

Continuing, we crossed the Vietnam – Laos border at Na Meo. Laos retains a rare innocence and charm, and we encountered it all along the way. Local rural life and the untamed topography mean that most of the populations live in bamboo huts that cling to the sides of scarred, limestone hillsides.

We cycled to Vieng Xai, a little historical town hidden amongst limestone karts and thick forests. This town was once the headquarters of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party during the Secret War.

Travelling west, we cycled to the sleepy town of Sam Neua, then on to Phonsavan. We spent the day touring the Plain of Jars, a mysterious plateau 50km wide scattered with over 300 stone jars, whose origin is still unknown. We continued through rolling mountain scenery to Phoukhoun and then finished our bicycle trip in the World Heritage-listed town of Luang Prabang with its friendly population, gorgeous golden temples and natural surroundings that include fabulous waterfalls.

This was a true cycling expedition, I loved cycling through the amazing scenery, and would highly recommend the Hanoi – Luang Prabang Adventure Cycling tour to all cycling enthusiasts who are looking for adventure.
