PILLION TOUR – HUE TO PHONG NHA (OR VV) ITINERARY
Day 1 Hue to Khe Sanh (Approx. 240 km)
Taking the small back roads out of Hue city, we’ll cross the beautiful Tam Giang lagoon before following the coast through small fishing villages and aqua-farming ponds. We’ll then enjoy a local-style lunch at Vinh Moc and have a chance to visit the incredible underground tunnel network at Vinh Moc village. The entire village lived underground for 8 years to escape the American bombing! A truly amazing place. Next, is a visit the 17th Parallel marker where you can see the famous Hien Luong bridge before taking Route 9 past the remains of many US Bases and into the mountains and cross the DMZ itself.
Day 2 Khe Sanh to Phong Nha (Approx. 250 km)
The day starts with a visit to the Khe Sanh combat base. The longest battle of all the wars in Vietnam took place here and we can see tanks, helicopters, and planes still sitting on the runway as well as a small museum. Next, we’ll join the Ho Chi Minh Trail West road. One of the best roads in Asia for bikers, this road should be on everyone’s bucket list. We’ll then ride through the coffee plantations before climbing an 1,100 metre mountain pass covered in untouched jungle. in the seemingly endless mountains and jungle, you’ll find small wooden stilt house villages where the tribes live a peaceful, traditional lifestyle. As we come to the start of the giant limestone Karst formation mountains we can stop for lunch in a small hill tribe town. After carrying on through more mountains, more views and more amazing riding, we’ll finally enter Phong Nha National park, a UNESCO Heritage area of natural beauty. There, we’ll follow the historic Victory Road down to the river and finish at the hotel.
