Golden triangle motorcycle tour in Laos countryside

These off-road Laos adventures are specifically for experienced riders. Our journey takes you deep inside the Golden Triangle, an area bordering Myanmar and Thailand known for its beauty. The mystical region far from the tourist path offers a plethora of cultural treasures at every stop. A nine-day, 1330-kilometer tour offers breathtaking scenery, historical relevance, and challenging terrain.

Day 1

First steps in Laos

Your Laos motorbike tours begin with a tuk-tuk picking you up at Luang Prabang airport and bringing you to where we will be staying. Enjoy the day exploring the city and relaxing beside the hotel’s pool.

Day 2

Luang Prabang – Kuang Si – Sayabury

125km - 4h of riding

A vehicle picks you up at 8:20 AM at your hotel. After having coffee with the team in our office you will take your bikes on a farming track to discover Luang Prabang’s surrounding. The small paved town is full of trails guiding you from one village to another. Discover the countryside through endless rice paddies and clusters of wooden homes. Along the way, stop for lunch at the beautiful Kuang Si waterfalls where you can refresh with a swim in the clear water of the falls. Ride your bike for another 50-kilometer on tracks carved alongside the mighty Mekong River to reach Sayaboury by late afternoon.

Day 3

Sayabury – Hongsa – Xieng Hone

190km - 5h of riding

The off-road Laos adventures continue after a local breakfast of meat, local vegetables, or a traditional soup. Start the day on a mountain road rising almost 1,900 meters high. Atop lush green peaks, you will enjoy the occasional picture and hill tribe village. We have lunch somewhere on the way, depending on the speed of the group. The second part of the day is on a wide track which twists through rice fields along the Thai border. Arrive at our destination in the late afternoon where few foreigners travel.

Day 4

Xieng Hone – PakTha – Houay Say

185km - 5h of riding

This morning, you have a local breakfast with the people of a very small and isolated village with only one tiny restaurant. Visit the old centenary Lue temple, hand-painted by the monks of the village and decorated with stunning Buddhist frescoes. Take to the trails by traversing several mountains and valleys leading towards the wild border of Laos and Thailand. Cross the Mekong River on a traditional long boat as you stand beside your bike, prepare your camera for this unforgettable moment! Immediately after crossing the river, you will be in a remote area populated by farmers and fishermen. Keep on a single track for several hours to arrive in Kamou and Lao Loum villages near the Thai border. Relax in Houay Say where you can treat yourself to a well-deserved Lao massage.

Day 5

Houay Say – Golden Triangle – Muang Long

240km - 6h of riding

The first two hours are on the road riding towards the famous Golden Triangle. Luxurious, yet isolated Chinese-style casinos make this a quite curious setting. During this day, you will enjoy sitting on the Mekong riverbank to observe architecture and boats pass between three countries. This is the heart of the Golden Triangle! From there, the adventure and isolation continue as you ride along a dirt trail. Several river crossings near the Burmese border guides us towards a remote village.

Day 6

Muang Long – Phoukha – Nale

170km - 5h of riding

Laos dirt bike tours continue as you wake to the call of roosters. Far from civilization, friendly rural people serve as the beating heart of the country. Take to the road in the morning by heading down into a valley via a single track to reach the small Lao Lum village of Phoukha Vieng. While on the road, stop for lunch at a local restaurant to regain your strength. We then ride towards Nale, a small fishing village in the middle of the Namtha River Valley. Bring a soccer ball to offer the school and partake in a great game with children of the village.

Day 7

Nale – Oudomxay – Muang Nga

220km - 6h of riding

Another day of your Golden Triangle motorcycle tour starts. More mountain slopes, river crossings, and breathtaking scenery are waiting. Take a farming track through rice paddies and banana plantations for about 75-kilometers. The trail will take you all morning and is full of local Kamou tribe villages. Reach the road and have lunch in the city of Oudomxai before hopping onto another off-road track. Large and somewhat technical, the path takes you towards the Green Valley. Once settled in your guesthouse by afternoon, you can leave your bag and heavy equipment behind. Take your time with your guide to visit this small and isolated town dominated by an old temple overlooking the village.

The adventure does not stop! After only a one-hour drive, you are within a dense forest for the next 85-kilometers. Tribal villages, stunning mountainous scenery, and technical challenges await. As usual, a guide ensures your safety throughout the ride. Hop back onto the main road for several hours before arriving back in Luang Prabang, a UNESCO’s World Heritage city.
