Day 1: Hanoi to Sapa by bus and Hike to Lao Chai/Ta Van

Start your experience with a morning bus journey from Hanoi to Sapa, arriving around lunchtime. Make use of some free time to freshen up in your room before having lunch at your hotel.

Then, begin your hike down the small trails of the Muong Hoa Valley toward the Black H'mong village of Lao Chai. Admire some of the most beautiful views of terraced fields in Asia as you go.

Continue your 12-kilometer hike along the bottom of the Valley to stop at the Dzay tribe village of Ta Van, arriving in the late afternoon. There, experience their traditional way of life with a stay in a local family's cottage.

Day 2: Hike to Dzang Ta Chai and return to Hanoi

Begin your second day with a 6:30 AM wake-up call, and spend some time enjoying village life for yourself. Next, have some breakfast at your homestay before getting ready for the day's trek.

Hike to Dzang Ta Chai, home of the Red Dzao tribe. Experience the contrasting way of life lived by these tribal people. Continue your trek through and reach a picturesque waterfall, where you can pause for a rest and picnic lunch.

After lunch, get ready for your bus journey back to Sapa. Have some free time in your hotel room to freshen up, before your transfer by bus back to Hanoi.

Sapa ist eine wunderschöne Gegend und wir bereuen es nicht diese Tour miterlebt zu haben. Allerdings geht sehr viel wertvolle Zeit durch die lange Fahrt verloren. Wir hätten uns gewünscht, dass die Fahrt früher beginnt und wir nicht erst gegen den Mittag in Sapa ankommen. Da wir eine Familie mit Kleinkind (18 Monate) in der Gruppe hatten, sind wir erst bei Dunkelheit in unserer Unterkunft angekommen. Der zweite Tag startete wieder mit einer Wanderung, mussten dann aber lange nach dem Mittagessen auf unseren Transfer warten. Es ging mindestens 2,5 Stunden bis wir dann endlich im Bus wieder zurück nach Hanoi saßen. Erfreulich war jedoch, dass uns der vor Ort organisierte Veranstalter uns nach der Tour kontaktierte und wir so unser Feedback direkt an ihn weitergeben konnten.

Alles is goed georganiseerd en je ziet een hoop van de omgeving van Sapa. Prettig dat je bij je hotel wordt opgehaald en de lokale gids weet heel veel van het leven en de omgeving in die streek. Zorg ervoor dat je alles wat je meeneemt kan dragen :)
