TOUR ITINERARY

Start Pick up

At 9 pm, we pick you up from hotel to Tran Quy Cap station. There, train departs at 10 and we have a nice sleep on train to go to Lao Cai.
Day 1 - Morning

Lao Cai - Sapa - Y Linh Ho (B/L)

Coming to Lao Cai train station, we still need to get on the bus and take one more hour to Sapa. Check in the hotel and have breakfast there before starting our adventure.

Our first journey is trekking from Sapa to Muong Hoa valley, the place opening your mind with an amazing view. There are small meandering rivers winding through marvellous rice terraces, bland winds penetrating into our spirit… This moment when you listen to the rhythm of life here, is unforgettable during your trip.

Daydreaming in Y Linh Ho Village, greenish corn stalks, immense rice terraces to skyline appear in front of our eyes. Simple but effective, architecture of H’mong houses on stilts is a typical characteristic of Northwestern Vietnam’s life, expressing how they get on well with nature. Additionally, we have a chance to learn about their traditional embroidering method handed down from many generations.

Later, we will have a delicious lunch beside the fresh Muong Hoa stream, where we can have fun with water and perhaps go swimming after that.
Day 1 - Afternoon and night

Lao Chai - Ta Van (D)

We continue our adventure to Lao Chai and Ta Van Village, where we discover new culture, traditions of ethnic minorities.

Lao Chai is famous for towering rice terraces from deep valley heighten up to the sky, fully brilliant yellow of ripe fields in the autumn. September to April is considered as best season to get here. We also know more about experiences of Black H’mong in intensive farming in valley, how they combine agricultural season with other crops such as corn, cassava,...

Trekking 4 km more and we are in Ta Van Village, where Giay minority people live for years. We understand more about their lifestyle, from stone worshipping custom to the reason why they live nearby streams, water sources... This area keeps indigenous pristine beauty, and electricity to the village and facilities of modern improving local lives can’t fade out their traditions.

And we have dinner beside woodfire in cozy atmosphere with Giay family in their homestay.
Day 2 - Morning

Ta Van - Giang Ta Chai - Su Pan (B/L)

Having breakfast and getting full energy to discover Giang Ta Chai area.

Going through lush bamboo forests, we arrive to Giang Ta Chai village. That’s where we visit Red Dao people’s town, to see how to make colorful, gaudy brocade clothes, how sophisticated women are to create these unique costumes. Seeing Cau May waterfall, suddenly we realize how much we love nature.

Being a mountainous town, Su Pan appears with small, simple houses on rock ground. Locals grow corn, as their main food, so we can see yellow corn stalks covering this area.
Day 2 - Afternoon and night

Ban Ho (D)

After having lunch, we head to Ban Ho, a well-known community attraction.

Ban Ho Village seems more exciting than others, when it becomes one of the main tourist attraction in Lao Cai. The flavor of modern life gradually spread out in this area, but the night come, Ban Ho returns to be peaceful, gentle as they were before.

In this serene ambience, we enjoy dinner and drink wine with Tay tribes, on stilt houses in the bottom of the valley.
Day 3

Ban Ho - Nam Toong - Ban Den - Sapa (B/L/D)

Morning comes and we have breakfast before strolling around their village, a beautiful waterfall, hot spring.

We go to the remote village called Nam Toong, to meet Red Dao tribe one more time. Maybe we will see something different between Red Dao people in Giang Ta Chai and here. It’s time for you observation skill!

Then, we’re back to Ban Ho for lunch. And the last journey is hiking to Ban Den village before coming back to Sapa.

And we have 3 hours more in Sapa to explore one last time. Bus picks you up to Lao Cai train station for the night train back to Ha Noi.
