Cycling The Central Highlands of Vietnam - 8 Days

Visited places: Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Lam Dong
Tour Activity/Theme: Adventure, Cycling, Ecotourism, Ethnic village, Bucolic countryside, Plateau, Waterfall

Cycling Holiday in the Central Highlands is one of AdventureGreen's Vietnam adventure tours by bike for 8 days 7 nights.

The highlights of the trip are scenic coffee plantations, rubber plantations, ethnic villages, rolling hills, sublime waterfalls along our cycling routes. Most of our biking is done on quiet paved roads or traffic-free roads.

Though the Central Highlands of Vietnam offer great natural landscapes, but they remain relatively off Nha Rong, a traditional house of Bahnar ethnic groupthe tourist track. The region we travel through has a temperate climate with pleasant temperatures all year round. The region is also home to a number of ethnic minorities whose life has remained unchanged for centuries. We can visit many of them on our adventure.

The trip can be done all year round, but the best time is from January through April. Most of the cycling has a leisurely pace, and our support vehicle travels along with us all the way, so that you can get on anytime you feel you had better not cycle. Budget hotels run by family are selected for the trip. Luxury accommodations are arranged upon request only.
