TOUR MAP
ITINERARY BY DAY

Day 1:
Meet your guide at your hotel and walk south of Sapa towards the busy village of Cat Cat. Explore one of Sapa’s less-traversed areas as you trek through the picturesque valleys surrounding the village of Y Linh Ho. Follow a gentle incline through emerald paddy fields above a deep river gorge before arriving on the river bank. Dip your toes in the cool mountain waters and watch local children fishing with nets, and then continue deeper through the villages and terraces of the Black H’mong. Walk at your own pace and take in some of the best panoramas Vietnam has to offer.

Enjoy lunch with a view at a local village restaurant before continuing through the valley towards the village of Lao Chai. Take a well-earned rest and enjoy a soothing cup of tea before learning the art of Batik painting. The beautiful textiles of the Black H’mong are famous around the world and Batik is a traditional part of H’mong culture. Join a hands-on master class led by a local expert and take your creation home! You will be supporting a sustainable tourism project that supports local women and ensures this amazing art form is handed down to the next generation.

Afterwards, head to the home of Ms Moo and her family, where you will sleep for the night. Watch as the sun sets over the rice terraces before tucking in to a delicious H’mong-style dinner. See how food is prepared over an open fire, listen to the sounds of the countryside and learn all about H’mong life and culture with your amazing hosts.

Day 2:
Wake early to enjoy the view of the sun rising over the terraces. After a simple but tasty breakfast, say farewell to Ms Moo and her family before being picked up and transferred back to Sapa town.
