Hoa Binh Lake - Ta Xua

Distance: 155 kms

155 km up with my favourites today. Not a big day distance wise but tight so still a full enough ride with plenty of photo opportunity and wow factor.

(A) is a waterfall very close to your accommodation. The first view where I took this shot. The path down is around the next right turn.

(B, C, D & E) Are all waterfalls. Unless you have a waterfall fetish you probably won’t do them all. Drop (D & E) possibly.

(F) The ferry crossing where you revisit the Da River is a safe and pleasant experience.

(G) The road up to Ta Xua from the Village is a bit broken up in places but almost no traffic so you have plenty of space to smooth it out. You’ll see lots to keep you entertained in this wonderful remote part of the North West.

Loads of accommodation options these days but (H) is the best of numerous I’ve tried over the years.

(I) The Dragon Spine at sunset or sunrise is spectacular. Worth the walk if not the ride.

My first ride to the end of the Dinosaur Spine still rate’s as one of my most memorable adventure day rides ever but not without risk. To get to the end (second photo) you have a 30 metre section around 30cm wide and a sheer drop both sides!

Also overlooking the spine and this wonderful valley don’t miss the pork skewers. Delicious.
