The Quang Binh province in Central Vietnam is quickly developing the reputation as the adventure capital of Southeast Asia. Gargantuan limestone caverns beg exploration beneath the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.

Hordes of tourists are flocking to the area to venture inside these ancient caves. Now more exciting activities are available for those searching for more pursuits on the surface.

One such experience is mountain biking in Phong Nha, which offers a mix of tough off-road trails, rural surroundings, historic sights and enchanting scenery. While the grandeur of the massive caves hiding amongst the jungles of the national park attracts thousands of visitors, the farmlands in the neighbouring area remain relatively untouched.

The mountain biking in Phong Nha take us deep into the heart of it and left us longing to venture back out on two wheels to relive the experience.

The legendary Hochiminh Trails which facilitated the movement of soldiers and war supplies from North Vietnam to battlefields in South Vietnam during the Vietnam/American war.

These trails were known as one of the greatest military engineering achievements of the 20th century. There is not only one or 2 Hochiminh trails. Our guide will tell you more about those than C.I.A ever knows.
