I take you to a few villages high up in the mountains near Sapa. During this trek we will meet the Hmong minority and have stunning views on top of the Muong Hoa Valley.
We start the trek from Sapa and take a small path into the mountains. The first part of this route we will be walking quite steep uphill through the forrest. On the way we pass some local houses and below us we can see the town of Sapa.
When get higher up in the mountains the terrain will get more flat and you can see a new valley with forrest and grasslands where you can see grazing horses. From here we walk to a small village called Sa Seng. Here we can have lunch with a local Hmnong family.
From Sa Seng we slowly descend to Hang Da village. From here we will have stunning views on the Muong Hoa (Green Valley) with it's ricefields. From Hang Da we descend to Giang Ta Chai. A village also inhabited by the Hmong ethnic minority (my ethnic group). During the trek I will explain you everything about my culture. In Giang Ta Chai transport will be waiting for us to bring us back to Sapa.
This tour includes a lunch, the village entree fees and transport back to Sapa.
LOCAL LUNCH INCLUDED
Because I would like to give you an insight in the culture of the ethnic minority tribes in Vietnam it is possible to have a traditional lunch in a local house, prepared by the family. You will get to try traditional dishes of the specific minority group. The costs of a local lunch are usually a bit higher then in a restaurant because of the ingredients and the work for the family. With this tour an optional local lunch is included in the price.
Bring good shoes, the trails can be quite slippery. Also a Waterproof Jacket, comfortable clothes and mosquito repellent are recommended.
Go up from Sapa and visit small mountain villages
