Phanop Valley Bombing

This allows enough time to do  the Ho Chi Minh trail route via the capital, Vientiane, ending in Pakse, the capital of the South, making it a one-way trip on the bikes and flying out from there. This route includes the incredible karst “limestone forest”, a tour of the caves, village stays and camping on the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Riding wise, it includes a good mix of small tracks and smooth roads, always following the tracks of the Vietnamese solders on the way to the war front in the South.
