Day 1 – 70 km Cycling to Co Tu Village
Our journey begins as we pick you up from your hotel in Hoi An. In around an hour, we will reach the starting point of our trip: the trailhead of the Ho Chi Minh Trail. This trail is known as the former military supply route during the war which cut through the lush mountains and green landscape of rural Vietnam. We will cycle along this trail and conquer the gorgeous rolling terrain throughout the day. In the afternoon, we will arrive at the heart of this mountainous region bordering Laos where we will meet the local Co Tu hill tribe.
While inhabiting the highland, the Co Tu ethnic minority group has established isolated villages where their native traditions are still well preserved and remain unfazed by modernity. You can expect to see how the locals go about their daily lives and learn more about the local culture. Today, we will have the chance to visit Bho Hoong and stay the night at the traditional bungalows of this Co Tu Village. If time permits, we will trek through the village to explore the surrounding forests and rivers. Once we are done rekindling with nature, we will indulge in the traditional dishes prepared by the locals for our dinner before we retreat to our bungalows.
