Sapa Markets on Wheels 3 Days Tour


This 3-day mountain bike trip takes you through beautiful countryside and intriguing villages. You will have the opportunity to observe the local minority communities at work, tending their fields in the shadow of the Chay river massif. The overnight stays in Bac Ha will give you the chance to explore the villages and visit the local market. From Bac Ha you can also visit the Can Cau market, crossing the Chay River by boat to the Bao Nhai village, where a variety of local minority groups can be found.

Day 1: Lao Cai - Bac Ha (B, L, D)

Viet Bamboo Travel's will pick you up at the rail station. For the next 1 1/2 hours, you will do not need to use the pedals, just concentrating on the road and enjoy the fantastic surroundings. After a short time passing the bustling town of Lao Cai, you will be again in the countryside of the Red River valley. The temperature now is much different from what you experienced earlier this morning. For the next 20 km you will be driving in lowland area, before reaching the village of Pac Ngam. Now we have a long and sometimes steep ascend to our final destination of today, Bac Ha. Should you feel tired from riding the bike, your jeep will pick you up and give you a lift to Bac Ha.
