The 8 day cycling journey begins from Dong Hoi and then explore along the Ho Chi Minh trail - one of the most renowned legends of the American War, taking in Truong Son cemetery, Cam Lo, Khe Sanh combat base, and Aluoi before arriving in Hue - the capital of the Nguyen Dynasty. It's also perched on the Perfume River and is backed by glorious hills. The trip concludes in Hoi An, a charming ancient town in central Vietnam.

Difficulty: Easy
After an early morning exploration of Paradise Cave, we’ll transfer for about 1.5 hours and then continue riding on the Ho Chi Minh Trail, across the DMZ (also known as the 17th Parallel) to Cam Lo. The road is now quite flat and we make good time. Stop en route to visit Truong Son cemetery, a memorial to the tens of thousands of North Vietnamese soldiers who were killed in the Truong Son Mountains along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. It’s just 14 kilometres further to the town of Cam Lo and here the trail heads across the border into Laos.

We’ll start the morning with a visit to the Khe Sanh combat base where relics of the war are exhibited and see the airstrip, where to this day nothing will grow. We ride through spectacular scenery, mainly downhill, from the Laos border to Dakrong River. We cross the bridge and ride along the river and what was considered the southern part of the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Again enjoy a traffic-free road, the terrain undulates and is a nice contrast to the flat plains of the previous day’s ride. Overnight at hotel in A Luoi

Distance and journey time:
Cycling distance up to: 65km
Difficulty: Medium
Due to the bad roads south of A Luoi, it is time to end the journey down the trail and to cut across the country to Hue, Vietnam’s Imperial City, recently designated an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In the morning, we cycle an 11km uphill to the Hai Van Pass with amazing views over the bay. The main road tunnels through the mountain so we’ll have little traffic on this old road up and over.

Today is an easy day ride to visit My Son, the ancient centre of Cham civilization.

Although many of the temples were destroyed by American bombs, there is still enough of the archaeological site to impress most visitors.
