Khe Sanh to Phong Nha
The day starts with a visit to the Khe Sanh combat base. The longest battle of all the wars in Vietnam took place here and we can see tanks, helicopters, and planes still sitting on the runway as well as a small museum. A deeply profound and thought provoking experience.
Next, we’ll join the Ho Chi Minh Trail West road. One of the best roads in Asia for great scenery and seeing traditional ways of life. With great mountains and thick jungle, this road should be on every- one’s bucket list.
We’ll then ride through the coffee plantations before climbing a 1100 meter mountain pass covered in lush jungle foliage..
In the mountains and jungle, we’ll find small wooden stilt house villages where the hill tribes live a peaceful, traditional lifestyle.
As we come to the start of the giant limestone Karst formation mountains we can stop for lunch in a small hill tribe town.
After carrying on through more spectacular mountains, more breathtaking views and more amazing riding, we’ll finally enter Phong Nha National Park, a UNESCO Heritage area of natural beauty. There, we’ll follow the historic Victory Road down to the river and finish at the hotel.
