4 Countries, 3 Weeks
China - Vietnam - Laos - Thailand
The new Four Countries of South East Asia Adventure is a fantastic opportunity to experience outstanding natural beauty, ancient cultural traditions and hill tribes with challenging cycling through dramatic landscapes.
From Yunnan Province in China we journey past lakes and rice fields up into the mountains, to minority areas visiting the spectacular Hounge Hani Rice Terraces; a glassy hillside mosaic reflecting the colours of the sky and one of the great hidden wonders of the world.
We cross into Vietnam cycling to Sa Pa, a former French hill station perched in the Hoang Lien Son mountains before heading over the Tram Ton; the highest mountain pass in Vietnam and visit historic Dien Bien Phu, where French colonialists were defeated during the first Indochina War.
Next we cycle on into beautiful landlocked Laos, journeying through rural landscapes, always greeted with a warm welcome, particularly at our home stay in Ban Nalay where we will experience a traditional Baci ceremony.
Our final destination on this four countries adventure is Northern Thailand. Following the road less travelled through a celestial mountain landscape where a rolling ‘sea of clouds’ is draped over dramatic Karst rock and verdant forest. We encounter minority communities and ancient temples ending our journey in Chiang Kham district.
