This motorbike experience in one of the most stunning and remote areas in Vietnam will become a memory for a lifetime. Ha Giang landscape is a mythical combination of conical limestone peaks and deep, majestic valleys. With mountain passes hanging onto cliff-faces high above roaring rivers, and back-roads threading through forests of limestone pinnacles, it’s ideal territory for a motorbike road trip.
