/ bike trekking in asia
Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi
depends what you defines as SE asia.
northern laos is made for such things; phongsali to udomxai, boten on the chinese border down along the mekong to huay xai, dozens of routes around namtha.
in laos, almost any road not going east-west is still unsealed - tho the chinese are changing that fast.
awesomely, in some places you can chuck your bike on a boat for stretches too.
or theres the thai-myanmar border areas between tak and mae hon song. south of mae sot theres all sorts of off-roads, many leading into myanmar (a little sketchy but what the hey).
if SEA includes yunnan theres endless stuff out froom jinghong, thru xishuanbanna, all the way into the tibetan foothills and down along the myanmar/laos borders.
if youre totally into the region NE india - assam and arunachal have endless unvisited areas with dirt roads going into mountains. needs permits to go beyond assam, but a real frontier.
