Northwest Mountainous Area Tour




Day 1: Hanoi – Mai Chau - Son La (L, D)

Meet your driver, 7:30am at your hotel in Hanoi. Travel through the verdant Red River Delta and witness the day to day life of the peasant farmers. Stop in Mai Chau, Hoa Binh for a short walk then drive to Son La - the capital of Son La province. Overnight in hotel.

Day 2: Son La – Tuan Giao - Lai Chau (B, L, D)
Son La has an old French prison and museum, perfect for a small walk to visit in the morning before your departure. From here you’ll go to Tuan Giao, and then keep going to Lai Chau for the night. You’ll enjoy the picturesque scenery as you pass the villages of Black Thai, White Thai, H'Mong and Muong peoples.

Day 3: Lai Chau – Sin Ho - Tam Duong (B, L, D)

From Lai Chau, the drive to Sin Ho is stunning with tiered tea plantations and verdant rice terraces carved into the landscape. Continue to Tam Duong for the night. If you happen to be in Tam Duong on a Sunday morning, the town is bustling with activity as the local hill tribes gather for their weekly market day here. Overnight in a hotel or guesthouse.

Day 4: Tam Duong - Sapa (B, L, D)

From Tam Duong to Sapa you pass through Binh Lu, up over the 1900 meter Tram Ton Pass, considered the most beautiful stretch of road in Vietnam. Sapa is nestled at over 1600 meters in the Hoang Lien Son Mountains and the valley truly is breathtaking. Enjoy lunch and relax before a 3 hour short trek down this stunning valley, which is sculpted with steep rice terraces, to Ta Van village for a home stay. Your guide will cook you a savory dinner of traditional Vietnamese food that you’ll be raving about, as you enjoy the hospitality of your Dzay hosts.

Day 5: All day trekking (B, L, D)

A good day trekking along rice terraces, through lush bamboo forest and local villages including that of the colorful Dzao hill tribe, and down to a rolling stream for a picnic lunch. After lunch, continue trekking along the rice terraces, trails and dirt roads into Ban Ho for an insightful night with your Tay hosts, where you’ll sleep in the cozy loft complete with comfortable mattress and a mosquito net.

Day 6: Short trek (B, L, D)

In the morning, take a sort trek to the dirt road for the jeep ride back to Sapa. Enjoy an afternoon to explore Sapa town, great shopping in the market for local produce and you can buy handicrafts from many of the local hill tribes selling their wares there. Bus departs from Sapa at 4:30pm, arrive Lao Cai at 6:00pm; night train back to Hanoi (A/C soft sleeper).
