This 9-day journey takes riders deep into the heart of hill tribe country on a rugged and wild ride filled with raw adventure. Climb into the hills, through thick jungle pathways, isolated mountain trails, and remote river valleys on a journey that's as rewarding as it is challenging. Meet curious locals who have never met a foreigner- certainly not a mountain biker! Take in magnificent views of some of Southeast Asia's most impressive scenery by day, and a pure starry sky by night. This is pure trail adventure, waiting for you in Laos.
One of the last truly remote and unexplored places in Southeast Asia, Northern Laos is a stronghold for subsistence farming tribal communities. While modern conveniences have improved quality of life in some ways, most of the region's people (over 30 unique tribes) fiercely maintain traditional culture and customs, living out life in the remote and inaccessible hills and valleys like their ancestors have for generations. This mountain biking adventure delves into the wild and mountainous backyard of this fascinating patchwork of tribal people, by single track and dirt village roads.
For the intrepid mountain biker in search of real adventure, you've found it.
