Dear Guests,


Are you looking for private trekking tours in Sapa with an independent, experienced tour guide? My name is Mu and I'm a Hmong tour guide born and raised in a village around Sapa. I would love to show you around in the beautiful local villages where I grew up and introduce you to the different colourful ethnic minority groups. My goal is to give you an insight in the real village life of the hilltribes in Vietnam. During these treks we will avoid big tourist groups to give you a real local experience.

To design the perfect tailor made trekking adventure, before the trek I will explain you about the different trails and villages. You can choose where you would like to go and this way we can always find the trek that best suits your wishes. 


When you choose to go on a hike with me I can bring you to my family members who live a traditional life in the mountains around Sapa. We will walk through stunning landscapes where you'll meet the people of my ethnic group (Black Hmong) and other ethnic minority groups such as the Red Dzao and Giay.I show you how local people, like my father, grow rice, corn and vegetables and take care of their animals. I also will explain you our local customs and traditions.


During the trek you will have the opportunity to spend one or more nights in a homestay in one of the villages. I can teach you how to cook a local meal or you can use the time to explore the village a little bit more.


I really love our way of living and I hope you will enjoy to be a part of it for a couple days. I hope to see you soon in Sapa!


With kind regards,
