    17 Days Hanoi - Buon Me Thuot Bicycle Holiday: 17 Days Cycling trip on Hochiminh Trail

    Cycling route: Hanoi - Mai Chau - Phu Luong - yen Cat - Thai Hoa -  Pho Chau - Phong Nha - Dong Ha - Khe Sanh - Aluoi - Prao - Kham Duc -  Plei Can - Plei Ku - Eadrang - Buon Me thuot - Hanoi

    The Ho Chi Minh trail, known within Vietnam as the “Truong Son Strategic Supply Route,” was an elaborate system of mountain and jungle trails linking North Vietnam to its allies in the South Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. During the Vietnam War, it served as the primary artery for moving troops, vehicles, and supplies. Comprising more than twelve thousand miles of roads and paths through some of the world’s harshest geography, it was a vital gateway linking a divided nation.


    The road network extended from Mu Gia Pass in the north, southward along the heavily forested western slopes of Laos, before entering South Vietnam at the northwestern end of the Plei Trap Valley — the “Valley of Tears” — and points south. It was kept in good condition by 300,000 full-time workers and almost as many part-time farmers, many of whose bodies fill the 72 Vietnamese military cemeteries that testify to the trail’s devastating human toll.

    The trail’s history as a line of communication dates back to World War II, when Viet Minh bands trekked the same paths. During the war against the United States, the existing footpaths developed into a highly organized infiltration route for men and supplies. Although the North Vietnamese made limited use of waterways and pipelines, this labyrinth of roads and trails remained throughout the war the heart of their logistic system. As military historian John Prados has pointed out, whereas supplies, ammunition, and weapons could be sent South by boat, “only overland was it possible for men and women to head South and join in combat.”

     18 Days Bicycle holiday from Hanoi to Buon Me Thuot has been inspected and carefully arranged by our experienced cycling team, offered for those who are looking for both historical, cultural interest and outdoor activities.
    Our trip will start from Hanoi, we cycle to Mai Chau and Phu luong on original Hochiminh trail then keep on newly upgrated tarmac road lead to the south Vietnam.
    Joining in this trip, the riders have great opportunity in exploring well known historical relics in each place, contemplating stunning scenery and captivated landscapes in Mai Chau, Phu Luong, Phong Nha natural heritage site, lush coffee farm and hill tribe people.
