Sidecar tour to Ban Gioc waterfall and Ba Be Lake National Park

Take time to explore back-roads and tracks along the border with China on our Ural Sidecar motorbikes stopping for a picnic lunch before heading to Pac Bo and Ho Chi Minh’s cave. Travel on small roads that takes us to the Nang river. There we put the bikes on boats and journey up the river through caves to the Ba Be Lake National Park, this spectacular clear lake surrounded by jungle-covered mountains is great for a swim and is cool in the summer.

Northeast sidecar tour visits Ban Gioc waterfall - Ba Be Lake national park, Vietnam's largest natural freshwater lake, where we can swim in the cool waters. Another highlight of the northeast is Ban Gioc falls on the Chinese border, the fourth-largest transnational waterfall in the world. With its waterfalls and lakes, the northeast is the perfect place to ride in summer.
It takes at least five days for a quick loop around the northeast. We start in Hanoi and make our way north on back roads to That Khe, then take small roads along the border with China to overnight at a home-stay with a Muong family in Quang Uyen. The next day we head back to the border region and have lunch at Ban Gioc waterfall, and down to Cao Bang town, overnight in hotel (single room). After breakfast at the hotel we take the back way to the Nang river where we board a boat with the bikes and cruise down the river and across Ba Be lake to overnight in a local Home-stay, last day we make our way to our garage in Hanoi where we transfer you to your hotel, end of the tour.
