The trekking route today is mainly downhill and this is one of the most enjoyable involving descending into a nearby valley inhabited by a variety of ethnic hill tribes.
Ta Van village is about 7 kilometers from Sapa town, in the midst of Muong Hoa valley. I bet you can’t get your eyes off the mountains, lush green rice terraces and the majestic Mount of Fansipan. About 40 households offer homestay services are available (guests stay overnight, eat, enjoy local specialties, watching ethnic performances performed by indigenous people …).
After breakfast at the hotel, go to Sapa market to see local people selling local food, fruit, vegetables, traditional clothes, handicraft brocades, and indigo fabrics… and then walk down to visit Cat Cat village.

1:00 PM: Visit a landing cave named Thien Cung (Heaven Palace), one of the biggest caves in the bay. The cave was founded by a local fisherman and renovated with walking paths and light for tourists but still quite many steps up and down so make sure that you are ready for this challenge.
