  • Day 4: Sapa – Y Ty – Bac Ha (B/L/D)
    • Y Ty is the first stop on the day's itinerary. This means you'll have to drive 80 kilometers along a scenic but dangerous road. This is due to the fact that the route is distant and frequently obscured by clouds.

      The challenge becomes even more difficult during the wet season, as we must travel over some treacherous rapids.

      When you get from Y Ty to Bac Ha, the true challenge begins. You'll be driving your 4x4 trucks on narrow, hilly routes. The abrupt turns are also challenging to handle.

      However, you will get the remarkable opportunity to see vast and beautiful terraced fields. Milestone 92, where the Red River flows into Vietnam, is another noteworthy location. This river gave birth to a civilization that has become our country.

      Then you'll go to Lao Cai City, check-in at the Ha Khau border gate, and pay a visit to the surrounding sacred temple. Bac Ha is not far away from here.

      You can travel from Bac Ha to Ha Giang on an old 153 road to Coc Pai Town in Xin Man, which has the highest market in Ha Giang. A 40-kilometre off-road route with numerous hazards is another option.
