West Vang Vieng Loop

Vang Vieng Western Loop

West Loop Vang Vieng
After cycling to Phu Kham Cave and Blue Lagoon, we continued on the Western Loop (over 30 km) on our multi-speed Giant mountain bikes rented from Maylyn Guesthouse.

It took us less than 3 hours (closer to 2 hours without breaks) on pretty flat but bumpy dirt roads, through villages and farms with gorgeous mountains in the backdrop. Along the way, there are a few caves as well as local shops selling water and snacks.

It was a scenic ride but your bum and hands might hurt from the nonstop jiggling motion. Also, anytime any vehicle passes by, it will kick up a lot of dust for half a minute each time.

The route is pretty straight forward but Hobo Map is good to have.
