Every day, the Lao motocross legion gasses their way over unknown terrain to forge new trails. And now you can navigate wilderness trails on an off-road adventure. Challenges for all levels of riders await...unimaginable vertical climbs to mountain peaks, tight jungle paths littered with obstacles, and wild water crossings. And you never know what’s around the next bend.
When it comes to really exploring the depths of Laos, motocross riders hold all the aces. You can power along the Ho Chi Minh Trail in the south, and inspect discarded war relics. Motor up the forested north-western mountains to ethnic villages for an overnight stay. Head out on a multi-province excursion, and into the middle of nowhere. Hard-core independent veterans can grab a map, app, and GPS device, and journey into the unknown. Those seeking backup can sign on with a seasoned moto-guide to lead your high-octane adventure.
You can also experience off-road thrills on an ATV or in a 4WD vehicle at Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng, Luang Namtha, and Oudomxay. There’s nothing better than a power-driven holiday thrill, especially in Laos, the Last Frontier.
