Full description
Start your day at 9:30am by meeting your friendly guide at Cinnamon restaurant. After a short meet and greet with your driver/guide you will set out on a brief, scenic drive full of panoramic views of the valley whilst heading down the main road to Muong Hoa valley. Whilst driving along the main road toward the valley you will eventually head off-road and travel down small trails, opening up views of terrace rice fields. Head through these gorgeous bush trails on your way to Y Linh Ho hamlet, seeing a local village of Black Hmong people along the way.  From Y Linh Ho village, you will travel along the river to go to Lao Chai village (old village). Here you will have time to visit the local families and listen to your guide teach you about the local culture. Learn how they live, how they build their traditional housing, their techniques of making clothes and hear stories about traditional ailments for sick people. After meeting with the locals stop for a bite to eat. Enjoy a fresh, delicious lunch served in one of the restaurants along the side of the river. In the afternoon, you will leave Lao Chai and continue to Ta Van village, the home of the Giay people. Your guide will introduce you to some families. You will learn about their life story, enjoy some green tea and learn about the different cultures that inhabit this area. After Ta Van you will be taken back via the main road to our final destination of Sapa where your tour will come to an end.

Magnificent landscape

6 hours of walking ... with a few breaks. You still have to be a good walker. Through the rice fields and a few villages. That's wonderful. Too bad our Hmong guide was not very talkative. We would have liked to learn more. Lunch is very decent in a village where we are a little harassed by the locals to buy their embroidery. But overall it is a great day of discovery.

First of all, I connected the guide to other products and the course wasn't good.
