Today we head straight towards the main Fansipan Mountain range. The massive mountain range dominates the road until finally we must make a splendid climb up from Binh Lu and up to the top of the highest road pass in Vietnam (Tram Ton Pass). Crossing into LaoCai Province at over 2000m the views looks out over the main range for miles and miles, before we descend to the mountainous Sa Pavalley. Dinner in town, night at hotel.

Day 7 : Vu Linh - Hanoi, 180 km, 6 hr ride.
After breakfast we cruise southeast on Highway 2 and then branch off to the sleepy town of Xuan Duong. We follow the edge of the Red River along the dyke, almost to the point where it merges with the Black River after which they flow together to Hanoi. By now we are very much in the lowlands of the delta plains and the north’s main agricultural areas. Harvest time here is a sea of activity. Crossing the Red River by ThangLong bridge, return to Hanoi on the highway.
