A relaxing two days. First day, hike from Sapa town to three H’mong villages. There’s a lot of people pestering you to buy stuff which gets old fast. First day finished very early. Like 2:30/3:00 we were done for the day and left to our own devices at the homestay. Second day, we were up early, hikes to a waterfall in peace. No sales pitches. Much better. We were bussed back to Sa Pa by about 2pm.

I really enjoyed this trip. The hikes are not too difficult, but the scenery is amazing. Especially on the second day. Our guide was super friendly and enjoyable. The homestay is interesting to get an idea of the way of life of the Vietnamese. I can really recommend this tour.

The track is not difficult, suitable for every healthy person. If the weather is clear, you see beautiful sceneries and life in mountain villages.
