Take a short trek to the gate of Cat Cat village, home of the Black H’mong ethnic people and located near the bottom of a deep valley at the foot of Fansipan Peak. A local guide will give you insight into the daily life of the locals.

Trek down to the bottom of the valley to the waterfall, where the French built a hydraulic power station. Stop to take photos before walking back uphill to meet the bus. The trek is approximately 2.5 kilometers and lasts for 2 hours.

In the evening, return to Sapa Town, where you can enjoy your evening at your leisure. Stay overnight in Sapa Lodge/Charm Sapa Hotel or similar.

Feedback: The local guide was great, the hotel was good but both drivers were really bad. They drove like crazy and it was extremely dangerous. No comparison to the many other taxi or bus rides we have taken in Vietnam. First driver requested a tip after his ride, what was also strange. If we had known this, we probably wouldn't have booked this tour and therefore we won't recommend it, even though everything was great in Sapa.

Our guide in Sapa was EXCELLENT. Her English was great and she had a lot of knowledge about everything in the tour. Inspite of the rain in Sapa, she took excellent care of us. Our request for vegetarian food was taken into account and food served at the restaurant was delicious. However there were 2 things I did not like but the tour 1. On the day of the tour, the service provider sent us an email including itinerary and gave us false information that our dinner was included and when I emailed them during lunch time, they did not respond to my question (still have not responded) 2. The "limousine" is only for 6 people; there are 6 comfortable chairs. However there were 8-9 people in our limousine and our group of 2 were cramped in the front seat next to the driver. On our way back, our group of 2 had to sit separately, one next to the driver and the other cramped in the back seat between 2 chairs. So we never got to sit on the chairs although we paid for comfortable seats.

We had an amazing trekking tour - would highly recommend! We stayed at Sapa Charm Hotel, and they have links with a local tour guide named Trang - she was absolutely fantastic. Took us on great trekking trails and helped us understand a bit about life in Sapa. She was a wonderful tour guide and we couldn't speak more highly of her - very enthusiastic and knowledgable!
