    SENSATIONAL photos - just how good is the riding in this area!
    I note from your map that you appear to have taken the road from Meo Vac back to Route 34 via Lung Phin - was there a problem with the road through to Khau Vai as I hope to be up there mid-April for the Hilltribe Love festival???
    Keep the shots & descriptive notes coming - BRILLIANT!

    @angkor1
    looks great. took you 2-3 weeks for that whole route?
    i plan to go in May for 7-10 days.
    -any places to avoid/not worth seeing please?
    -where were the most scenic rice terraces in your experience?
    -what size (CCs) bikes to you recommend for this terrain?
    thanks!
