Program

Day 1: Hoi an - My Son - Dong Phu - Kham Duc (phuoc Son)

Time to hit the road again! You leave Hoi An in the morning and head to My Son, a world heritage site that is the Cham version of Angkor Wat. Most of the temples are dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, considered by the Cham as the founder and protector of their dynasties.

From My Son, you will continue along the highway, busy at first, until the road shifts and becomes smaller, although paved. Then the drive becomes challenging, but a lot of fun and progress is far slower.

You will continue riding along the river, but the road itself, new and not very busy, climbs up along a very steep valley with the river rushing below. The river below is dotted with unique rock formations and there are waterfalls along the way. Lunch will be in Dong Phu.

Leaving Dong Phu, eventually, you will come to the town of Kham Duc or Phuoc Son. Overnight in Kham Duc Hotel.

  • Distance: 200 km / 124 miles
  • Accommodation: Hotel in Kham Duc
  • Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day 2: Kham Duc - Kon Tum

After breakfast in a local restaurant, you continue riding north on Highway 14 today on a bit of a bumpy section of the road to Kon Tum.

Today is really a day to visit different minority villages. You will ride over Lo Xo Pass, making lots of stops along the way to meet De and Trieng minorities, who live along the Dak Po Ko River. Along the river are many amazing hanging bridges, built by the local people to cross to the opposite shore. Lunch will be in Tan Canh, and you can visit a village of Se Dang, before driving on to Kon Tum.

Along the way, you also pass one of the key towns and battle sites of the Vietnam War - Dak To and outpost Charlie. In Kon Tum you can visit the Catholic church and the orphanage, based behind the Catholic Church in town and run by a group of French nuns. If time permits, you can also visit a beautiful Bahnar village near town.

Overnight in Kon Tum at the Dac Bla Hotel.

  • Distance: 190 km / 118 miles
  • Accommodation: Hotel in Kon Tum
  • Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day 3: Kon Tum - Buon Me Thuot

The new Ho Chi Minh Highway was built on the old trail, but from Kon Tum to Daklak, the historic HCM trail (Highway 14C), runs parallel to Highway 14 linking Kon Tum, Pleiku, and Buon Me Thuot.

You will continue riding Highway 14 today, finding that traffic is busier than usual. Lunch will be in Pleiku. From here, you ride along the Tun River and up over a pass. Along the way are coffee plantations and the stilt houses of the Central Highland’s largest ethnic group, the Gia Rai. Eventually, you will cross the Nha Rong pass down into Buon Me Thuot, the provincial capital of Dac Lac Province, and the site of the last battle of the Vietnam war in March 1975.

At night you can stop by the beer parlors or sample the local coffee grown in the region. It is far and away the best coffee in Vietnam and worth bringing home. Overnight at the Thang Loi Hotel.

  • Distance: 240 km / 149 miles
  • Accommodation: Hotel in Buon Ma Thuot
  • Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day 4: Buon Ma Thuot - Lak Lake - Dalat

This morning, you take a motor ride to Lak Lake on Rte. 27, a small paved road with poor surfacing and quite busy. Here you can have a break for refreshment and troll around the by the lake. There are said to be about 31 different ethnic groups in Dac Lac, each with their own traditional dress and customs. Some of the villages are known for elephant hunting and taming, some for weaving and other arts.

After lunch in Lak Lake, you continue on to Da Lat. The road is narrow, winding, but not busy. You have three passes to cross - Krong No, Chuoi, and Phu Son. The drive itself is quite beautiful and lined with dense forests. Late in the afternoon, you will arrive in the hill town of Da Lat. Overnight in Dalat.

  • Distance: 200 km / 124 miles
  • Accommodation: Hotel in Da Lat
  • Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day 5: Dalat

Leaving the hotel in the morning on the steel horse far away from the city, you take a detour out of Dalat City, skirting along the twisty mountain roads where you’ll enjoy the epic motorcycle roads with charming landscape and isolated villages, stop in the village to visit and learn how they are doing business with all special thing in Dalat as flowers, vegetables, fruits…

You continue your day by turning on the locals’ off-road ride that leads you to West of Dalat - Lang Biang Mountain. This road is really challenging your driving skills as you traverse through the muddy tracks, narrow paths, sharp descents and ascents.

You get to the waterfall where you’ll admire its natural beauty and the fresh streams below. It’s just perfect to cool your body off after several hours of riding. Your tasty lunch will be prepared next to the waterfall. The feeling of being in nature with the sounds of waterfall, birds or wild animals is incomparable…

Your afternoon ride is no less interesting and adventurous as you ride through lush green coniferous-pine forests with long climbs, a wooden bridge over the river. You take delight in the magnificent landscape from the peak of the mountain. You get back on your bike and ride to the remote villages of hill tribes where you’ll explore their unique culture and natural hospitality.
