Hoi An to Prao / Tay Giang (120 km)

We start the first day of riding from our garage in Hoi An, riding out into the beautiful countryside before we stop at Marble Mountain for a short visit (optional). We then head west and climb our way into the mountains. As we wind our way up into the hills towards the Lao border home to the Co Tu Ethnic minority group, we take a break to visit a traditional Ethnic Minority village before continuing our journey deep in to the mountains, meandering through isolated villages of the Co Tu people where the culture and traditions remain untouched by time making this remote and staggeringly beautiful region home to one of the most authentic hill tribes to remain in Vietnam.

After breakfast in the village, we resume our bike ride to Khe Sanh. Today we travel the historic Ho Chi Minh Highway through lush rainforests and over magnifi-cent mountain passes. Take a refreshing dip in a mountain waterfall at midday, where we’ll break for a picnic lunch.We begin the afternoon winding through the A Shau Valley, a ruggedly beautiful valley that became famous during the American War as the site of many battles – the most famous being Khe Sanh – where we stay for the night.
