Honda CRF 250L
70% off Road
Day 1: Luang Prabang to Vang Vieng – 200 km-4 hrs riding. We start our tour by leaving Luang Prang and heading south through twisting terrain to Xaing Ngeun and up into the mountains up to the Kasi Pass. From there it’s down to our day’s destination, Vang Vieng, early arrival means a fun afternoon in this buzzing city. An easy day to get you ready for the next 3 day.
Day 2: Vang Vieng to Long Tieng – 150 km-5-6 hrs riding. Today is a big day with a lot of ‘off road’. A journey that takes us climbing up and around the Nam Gnon Lakes. Reaching those lakes gives us some great not to be missed views of the surrounding countryside. Then we hit the new road and ride down into Long Tieng. Long Tieng was a military base which during the Laotian Civil War, served as a town and airbase operated by America’s Central Intelligence Agency. We will stay in the local guest house.
Day3: Long Cheng to Phonsavan – 120 km-5hrs riding. Before we leave, we’ll finish our look at that very interesting and historically significant area. Then we leave for Phonsavan which we will reach in the afternoon passing through Xam Thong LS20 which played it’s own major role in the war. The new school stands on the old Hospitals base and the Air America bunk House Chimney also still stands.
On arrival there, we will visit the Plain of Jars. The Plain of Jars is a huge site of stone urns, some with lids. What the jars were used for isn’t known, but there are many guesses. The most popular guess is that the jars were used as a ‘burial ground’. Time permitting we can visit other sites such as the 1000 Step Mountain or the Spoon Village. The evening will see us at our local guesthouse.
Day 4: Phonsavan to Luang Prabang – 240 km-6-7hrs riding. We’ll be up and away early for our last days ride, its a big one. Mostly off road with some great mountain sections, river crossings and the wide open planes of Xiang Khouang. On arrival in Luang Prabang, we’ll check into our Hotel, and get ready for the evenings entertainment in this beautiful city.
