Day 1: 19h00: Depart from Hanoi, follow Highway 32 to Son Tay, pass Trung Ha Bridge to Thanh Son (Phu Tho), dinner in Thanh Son.
If it is not cold, then after breakfast you can continue to go to Thanh Son – Thu Cuc – Nghia Lo, then overnight in Nghia Lo. Choosing this option, we will have more time to explore the Blind, but we will not see the scene around.
If it is raining or cold, it is not advisable to drive long distances at night. It is dangerous to go to Thanh Son or Thu Cuc and continue the journey the next morning.
