Full Itinerary

Day 1: Ha Noi - Ba Be Lake (L/ D)

An early start to the day to make the most of what we have in store for you. We will pick you up from your hotel in Hanoi at 07.30 hrs, then hit the road north towards Ba Be National Park. Lunch will be in a restaurant in a village on the way, and then our route will take us up through the mountains and tea plantations to Ba Be lake, an amazing green lake in the middle of natural green forest. We then travel to the Tay village of Coc Toc, with its beautiful stilt houses and friendly population of Tay people, who make their living by fishing in the stunning Ba Be lakes and farming. You will stay in the homestay of a local family here that has been resident in Ba Be for many years, enjoying their wonderful hospitality, and have some time in the evening to

explore the beautiful surroundings. You may also wish to take the option of walking or cycling around Coc Toc village, kayaking on the lake in boats that we reserve for our tour guests, or simply relaxing in the peaceful surroundings and enjoying the views.

Day 2: Ba Be Lake - Ha Noi (B/ L)

After breakfast at the homestay, we will go on foot to Bo Lu boat station to embark on a 3 hour boat trip, gently touring around the lake. If you need to cool off, this is a great opportunity to jump into the river for a swim - so refreshing! The boat takes you by the slow flowing river, giving you ample opportunity to gaze in awe at the dramatic mountains and valleys and natural caves. You will also get the chance to enjoy some bird and butterfly spotting - the national park is home to a vast variety of flora and fauna. The boat will progress through the Puong cave, which forms a natural tunnel through which the river flows, and has thousands of stalactites and stalagmites as well as a bat colony, several thousand strong. You can rest your legs on the drive back to Hanoi, stopping for lunch at a local restaurant on the way. We should arrive in Hanoi at about 17.30 hrs and you will be let off at your hotel in Old Quarter.
