About this tour
Siam Bike Tours would like to take you to the Vietnamese Yunnan highlands, the “roof of Indochina”. The northern border region of Vietnam has become an insider tip for cycling enthusiasts due to the greatly improved quality of its roads. Breathtaking pass roads lead past mountain ranges up to 3,000 m high and through large, lush rainforests.
We meet in Hanoi, the oldest of the still existing capitals of Southeast Asia with its old town in the French colonial flair. From there we take the van north to the starting point of our tour near Lao Cai on the border with China. In eight fascinating stages on winding paths back to Hanoi we experience the beauty of the region in all its diversity. Although some of the climbs to be mastered are many kilometers long, they can be described as moderate due to their incline and uniformity. It is a sporty, demanding tour for lovers of exceptionally beautiful mountain passes.
Following the philosophy of Siam Bike Tour, we always choose the best possible, locally available accommodation on the stages. While it is mostly luxurious and cozy hotels or resorts, in more remote locations it will occasionally be simpler hotels or guest houses. Vietnamese cuisine is widely known to be very tasty and wholesome. In larger towns, French and colonial dishes are also available as options. For this tour we cooperate with an experienced and excellent local tour company.
