Sapa HomeStay Trekking Tour 2 days
The combination of fresh mountain air, relaxed ambience, sweeping panoramas and fascinating hill tribes make Sapa a most-wanted destination. Adventure travel activities into variety of ethnic minority groups generally retaining their lifestyle, traditional costume with high mountains, deep ravines and terraced fields will excite our spirit of adventure. The adventurous trek takes us deep into a hill tribe region where tourists are still something of a novelty. Staying in local family house at nice village will allows us to experience, at first hand, a lifestyle that has been little touched by the modern world and a curiosity from our hosts just as great as our own. The trekking is fairly strenuous at times but the spectacular scenery and sense of adventure make this an outstanding trek.
Night 1: Depart from your hotel to Hanoi railway station for the night train to Lao Cai (soft sleeper with airconditioning). Overnight on train
Day 1. Lao Cai - Sapa - Homestay in Ban Ho village (B, L, D)
Early arrive in Lao Cai, a car ride uphill to Sapa takes a little over an hour, giving you a glimpse of the stunning vistas and impressive rice terraces. Breakfast at a local restaurant, then drive (30 minutes) to the Golden Stream Valley, stopping at Ta Van village. Walk down through the village from the main road and start trekking to Giang Ta Chai village. The trekking route offers some challenge as you balance on the rice terraces and a small trail on the steep mountain side. The vegetation is dense as the trail leads up to a peaceful village perched on the Hoang Lien mountainside. Head downhill and relax by a local stream for a picnic lunch. In the afternoon, trek about 1.5 hours uphill before descending down to the quaint Tay hill tribe village of Ban Ho. Dinner and overnight in home stay
Day 2. Sapa Trekking - Train back Hanoi (B, L, D)
After breakfast, you will start the day with an easy trek on dirt paths. Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the valley with its traditional stilt houses and rice terraces. Make your way along a stream to cross a hanging bridge before arriving in Nam Tong Village. In this picturesque valley, you'll pass some remote villages of the Red Dzao ethnic minority communities set amongst the rice and corn fields. After a picnic lunch, walk back to the meeting point where our driver is waiting to take you back to Sapa for a shower.
