On this Ho Chi Minh bicycle tour, your road bike takes you up mountain passes, along glistening rivers, and through jagged valleys. It’s the beauty of Vietnam's landscape that will make you happy to be riding on the newly-built Ho Chi Minh Highway. Of course, other sites on this historic road will make you pause and contemplate the past, but let the scenery wash over you as you explore this remote area of Vietnam.
The wide, smooth undulating highway with little traffic is a cyclist’s dream. Led by a local and English-speaking guide, we experience authentic Vietnam on our route of 922 km through farms, orchards, tribal villages set amongst spectacular scenery. Along the way, explore one of Vietnam’s most spectacular caves, war sites, and the ancient royal seat of Hue.
Once a small track used only by locals and ponies, the Ho Chi Minh Trail expanded into an elaborate system of mountain and jungle trails to roads for vehicles to transport troops, millions of tons of foodstuff, weapons, and other essentials during the war. This web of trails ran for 2,000 km, roughly parallel to the Vietnam/Laos border, along the Truong Son Mountains. Today, the many paths criss-cross the Ho Chi Minh Highway, a well-made, paved road that cuts through some spectacular landscapes. This unique bike tour in Vietnam takes you through the most scenic northern to central section, ending in Hue.
