Our unique mountain biking trip in northeast Vietnam takes place against a backdrop of endless lush green paddy fields and irregular tree-covered limestone mountains. Providing a fleeting insight into the traditional lives, friendly tribes, and exotic landscapes of northwest and northeast Vietnam, our trip also delivers surprisingly good riding across the mountainous area of northern Vietnam.
