In the morning we start our motorbike tour by leaving Hanoi on dyke roads to avoid the heavy traffic and breaking out of the delta plains.

During the First Indochina War, the 15km-long Lung Lo Pass, used by the Vietnamese resistance force to transport weapons, goods and food during the Dien Bien Phu campaign of 1954, was heavily bombed by the French in order to sever the front lines from the rear. Lung Lo Pass, situated in the northern province of Yen Bai, was also recognised as a national heritage by the ministry.

After lunch, we ride to the Mu Cang Chai massif, almost as high as the Fansipan. From the top, it offers one of the most beautiful views of North Vietnam. Mu Cang Chai, a rural district lying at the root of the Hoang Lien Son mountain range, is 1.000 meters above sea level. The terraced paddy fields in three rural communes namely La Pan Tan, Che Cu Nha and Ze Xu Phinh are designated by the Ministry of Culture, Sports & Tourism as a National Monument. So the ride is challenging but very rewarding.

Crossing into Lao Cai Province at over 2,000m the views looks out over the main range for miles and miles, before we descend to the mountainous Sa Pa valley. Sa Pa is located in Lao Cai Province, north-west Vietnam, and 350 km north-west of Hanoi, close to the border with China. Sapa is famous both for its fine, rugged scenery and for its rich cultural diversity. French used to consider Sapa as Summer Capital of Northern Vietnam in the early decades of the 20th century.
