Cycling Vietnam – Day 6

Phong Tho – Muong Lay (243 masl) – 78 km

This is an awesome cycling day with great scenery. The whole day you will cycle beside the river “nâm Na”. After 15km you reach Pa Tan, a nice small village with great market atmosphere. A lots of people wearing their tribal dress. If you are unlucky you might get cooked coz this is seemingly the hotest area in Vietnam. We had around 39 degrees Celsius … and it was more than enough.

At km 50 you reach Nam Kay. The real village comes around 2 km after the stone marker. From here its another 18 km to a crossing before you have the last 10 km for the day.

The road is all paved and in very good condition. In Muong Lay (close by the bridge) is a basic but good hotel. Besides the hotel is a restaurant and a super market. All you need.

There is a hotel called Nam Anh … somehow 6 km before Muong Lay. We didnt wanted to stay there coz that would at another 6 km on our long day tomorrow.

Total: 78 km

Total hm up: 1283

Total hm down: 1243

Highest point: 356 m
