Tam Dao - Trail, Hanoi, Vietnam/Tam Dao Village, Asia And Pacific

DESCRIPTION

There are many singletrack and "fireroad-type" trails that snake around and to and from Tam Dao. many are rocky and switchbacked. They can be as adventurous or treacherous as you want to make them. Local guides can provide directions to various places, but aren't likely to join you since you'll be the only one there with a mountainbike. Snakes and leeches aren't as much of a problem as in other areas in Vietnam. There are also supposed to be tigers, bears, king cobras, monkeys and leopard cats about, but encounters with poachers are more likely. Some riding options, all of which will require some hiking, and all of which feature some outrageous climbs and downhills. Times are very approximate. - 3 hour out'n'back, mostly flat to Thai Nguyen - 2-3 hour climb to the top of 1500+meter Tam Dao peak, scream all the way down so hikers will get the hell out your way. - bike to any one of several ethnic-minority villages--they'll feed you full for a $1, and offer snake meat and snake's blood to replenish those glycogen stores - hammer the old French road to Thai Tien, imagining you're a Legionnaire getting your ass kicked by skinny little Uncle Ho.
