After a really comfortable drive with the morning coach bus from Hanoi we arrived in the early afternoon in Sapa. Such a colorful town thanks to the H’mong and Dzao people from the local hill tribes who head into the town’s market every day to trade their produce. The region is also known as “the Tonkinese Alps”, Sapa is just a lovely hill station town in Northern Vietnam near the Chinese border.
Enjoy a very warm welcome from our local (Hmong or Red Dzao) tour guide who will guide you through this stunning piece of Vietnam. From the lush terraced rice paddies to the rustic charm of the native dwellings, Sapa is a place you’re sure to fall in love with! Many diverse groups like the Dzay, Dzao, Tay, Xa Pho or Hmong populate this richly cultural northern territory.
You’ll sample their unique delights as you pass through each village, trek 2 days and overnight with the local Hmong minority family in a homestay, enjoy cooking with locals & lovely 30 min herbal foot massage.
We hope you are ready for our non-touristic trekking.
This is a trip you’ll remember for the rest of your life…
