TOUR SUMMARY
 
 

This is a real off-the-beaten-track cycle tour to a part of Asia few foreigners ever venture. Starting in Hanoi, we take the train to the hill-station of Sapa and discover the mountain trails around Fansipan, Indochina’s highest peak. Riding over a 2000 metre high mountain into the remote Lai Chao Valley we visit a land known by the local Hmong people as "beyond the clouds." Our ride ends in Dien Bien Phu, the site of the Viet Minh's historic and decisive victory over the French. After visiting the battlefields and learning how Ho Chi Minh defeated the French, we fly back to Hanoi.
