  1. Offroad loop around Pu Hu Nature Reserve (Quan Hoa-Muong Lat-Muong Ly-Mai Chau)
    3 day dirt ride on Honda Baja with 2 nights in the field.
    Great ride but I found one little problem - there wasnt any accomodation along the track (except Mai Chau:))
    I even tried to find some help in small army camp and forest ranger station but no luck. Most locals responded aggressively to my requests about sleep site while looking on my bike with huge interest :thumbdown:
    Vietnam was socked in really fast so i had to sleep in my hennessy hammock.
    This is how my track looks in Google Earth:

  2. Hey Levy, you're a Star!

    That is real adventure riding. Thanks for the report and photos.
     
  3. Nice one Levy. It looks like a great trip & you had a good time alright. Plus you were prepared for the night out in the boonies - well done.
    Many thanks for the contribution, & if you've got anymore - please post them.
     
  4. Great report and photos Levy.

    I hope to do a big ride in vietnam later in the year, and your dirt loop is the kind of riding I like doing.

    Thanks for the post, it has given me a few ideas to ponder while planning my trip.

    Cheers Rex
