14 Day | Ho Chi Minh Explorer

14 Day | Ho Chi Minh Explorer


A daring exploration into the less traveled areas of Laos

LEVEL Experienced

DISTANCE Approx. 2400 km

TERRAIN Approx. 80% off-road

NOTICE: Traversing the Ho Chi Minh trail into some of the most remote areas presents some challenges for all aspects of the tour. It is not guaranteed that the trails we have ridden many times in the past will be available to ride tomorrow. Detours may be made on the spot due to hydropower projects, mining projects or new road works. At the same time, weather and nature can play its part in reclaiming the trails. In addition to road projects, unexploded ordinances (UXO) are still active on certain areas around the trail, so extreme care is required. You will be accompanied by our team of excellent guides, support trucks drivers, and fully qualified mechanics. The need for flexibility when embarking on this adventure is required as we may have to adapt as we go due to the above.

Tour Description

This 14-day expedition through eight of the Lao PDR’s provinces is specially tailored to show you the best of the trail. The focus will be on seeing important sites on the trail that are both strategic and historical. All key stopping points and areas of interest will be explained by the guides. We will ride off-road as much as possible, all riding conditions will be encountered on this tour.

Due to the nature of this adventure we may have to change some plans along route depending what we encounter, camping equipment will be taken so if needs be we can overnight in local villages. There will be a support truck that shadows us where possible, but we will mostly be exploring these remote areas of Laos on two-wheels by ourselves. The riding is fantastic, and the history immense.
