About

Sapa Valley (or Muong Hoa Valley) is one of the most beautiful lush valleys in Vietnam, the valley stretches about 40 km along Hoang Lien Son range and it is the common home of six ethnic groups including Kinh, H'mong, Dzao, Tay, Giay and Xa Pho. This is an excellent opportunity for who would like to explore the villages located in the valley and discover their daily life and tradition.

Itinerary

  • Transfer to Sapa by overnight bus

    Meet at the Hostel at 9:00 pm to leave for the Bus Station to catch the sleeper bus from Hanoi to Sapa, arriving early the next morning in Sapa bus station and get pick up from the bus. 

  • Day 1: Sapa-Y Linh Ho-Lao Chai-Ta Van L/D

    At 10 am we leave the hotel and start trekking. The first part is on the road but we soon turn to the right and walk on a small path down the valley to the Muong Hoa River and from here to the Black H'mong village Lao Chai San, Lao Chai.

    Black H'mong is one of the biggest minority groups in the Sapa area. They are proud of their culture and keep their traditions and way of living. They have their own language and wear traditional indigo blue clothing.

    After this, you continue to Ta Van village (1.200 m) to visit Zay people. Zay is a fairly small minority group of about 38.000 people who live mainly in the mountains in Northwest Vietnam.

    The development has meant that some of their old customs have been lost but many women still wear traditional shirts with purple, blue or green color. The Zay houses are built of wood and bamboo with a clay floor.

    We stay overnight with a local family in Ta Van and have our dinner here. 

    Overnight in Ta van Village

  • Day 2: Ta van - Giang Ta chai - Ban Ho B/L/D

    After breakfast, we continue to visit Red Dao people at Giang Ta Chai where we also see a waterfall.

    The Red Dao women have very colorful red embroidery and coins on their clothing. On their head, they wear a red scarf. Some of the women have shaved off their eyebrows because of a nice Red Zao legend. 

    We continue along small paths in the rice fields, cross the Muong Hoa River and arrive at the Tay village Ban Ho (900 m). Tay is the most populous of the hill tribes.

    Because of the development and adaptation to the Vietnamese society, some of them have started wearing Vietnamese clothing. But most women still wear the traditional checkered headscarf. We stay overnight in a wooden Tay stilt house.

    If we reach Ban Ho in the early afternoon you will have time to swim in a nearby river. In the evening we have dinner with the Tay family.
