Duration: 2 Days 1Night.
This trip to the northwest highlands of Mai Chau offers a balance of cultural interest and physical activity, set amongst some of northern Vietnam 's most stunning scenery. We trek for one and a half days through villages in Mai Chau and overnight in a White Thai village
where we have the opportunity to observe the lifestyle of these minority groups. From the mountainous region of Mai Chau, we travel back to the nation's capital, Hanoi.
Day 1: Hanoi - Mai Chau - Pong Cong Village (L/D)
Today you take a drive West toward Mai Chau with one stop in Hoa Binh City for refreshments and coffee. Continue driving toward Mai Chau valley, about another 1.5 hours away, stopping on the way to take in the spectacular scenery. Our hosts for this evening will be the White Thai minority people and you will stay in one of their traditional stilt houses. There, you will be toasted as honoured guests and will be able to sample some of their homemade rice wine! In sampling these people's hospitality, we will discover a little more about their lives and culture following the evening meal.
Tonight's accommodation will probably be a little more rustic than your usual accommodations at home.
Day 2: Pong Cong Village- Khoe village - Lac Villge - Hanoi (B/L)
Following breakfast you begin a soft trek in this beautiful valley, going from one village to another and have a chance to get in touch with local villagers going about their daily business tilling the fields, logging or herding the buffalo. Driver will meet you at Khoe Village for transfer back to Lac Village for lunch. Afterwards you can stroll around the hamlets, before returning back to Hanoi . End of services.
