Part 3: Dong Van – Meo Vac (20km)
This is actually only a short ride, and you could be tempted to say that you only an hour or two to get to Meo Vac. However, this section is probably the absolute highlight of the loop – for some 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. Make sure you have plenty of time stopping at various places to take in the sights.
From Dong Van follow the main road out-of-town – the same you used to arrive in Dong Van. After leaving town the road passes some rice fields and soon enough the road starts to ascend into the mountain area again. And from here on it will be difficult to beat the scenery. Even reading about it nothing could have prepared me for this stunning area.
