From 120 $ / person

Day 1: Sapa – Hau Thao – Giang Ta Cha

Our local guide will pick you up upon your arrival in Sapa early in the morning.

From here, we set off to discover Sapa and its nearby villages of Sen Sang Hao Thao , which are home to Black Hmong people. There we have ample opportunities to see how they live and give wonderful insights into their way of life. Finally, we arrive in the village of Giang Ta Chai.

Tonight we appreciate the local hospitality over a dinner and an overnight stay in a traditional stilt-house. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included).

Day 2: Giang Ta Chai – Sin Chai – Sapa
The day begins with a beautiful hike through lush rice terraces and along verdant hills, before we return to Sapa.

Here, we have the chance to appreciate the laid back pace of the township, visit a local market and learn about the local cuisine.

Afternoon finds us in the villages of Sin Chai and O Qui Ho. The Sin Chai and O Qui Ho are situated in a region of sculpted rice terraces and home to Black Hmong people.

We hike around peaceful villages and farmlands at an easy and leisurely pace to suit everybody. We stay overnight in a hotel in Sapa. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included).

Day 3: Sapa – Bac Ha – Lao Cai
We depart from Sapa and drive to Bac Ha. Bac Ha is well-known for its Sunday market, here the Flower Hmong, Dzay, Tay and Dao ethnic minorities converge at the market early in the morning to trade their own traditional things.

This is followed by a scenic hike around some idyllic villages and watch village life. We then drive back to Lao Cai, taking the bus or train to Hanoi.
