Part 3: Dong Van – Meo Vac (20km)
This is actually only a short ride, and you could be tempted saying it only takes an hour or two to get from Dong Van to Meo Vac. However, this section is probably the absolute highlight of the loop. Some will even say it is the most beautiful ride in Vietnam. The road follows some of the most impressive valleys and hills you can find in Vietnam, and the last thing you want to do is rushing here. You want to have plenty of times to stop when you want to. And trust me, with these sights you will stop often.
From Dong Van follow the main road out-of-town. After leaving town the road passes rice fields and soon enough the road starts to ascend into the mountain area. From here on it will be difficult to beat the scenery. Even reading about it nothing could have prepared me for this stunning area.
