SaPa - Ta Van - GiangTaChai - Ban Ho - NamToong - SuPan - SaPa
At a elevation of 1600 meters, Sapa is a delightful old French hill station situated in the mountainous region of Vietnams' northwest, close to the Chinese border. The region is home to many ethnic minorities groups all wearing their traditional and colourful attire.
Many travelers consider Sapa to be the highlight of their stay in Vietnam. The variety of ethnic minority groups in Vietnam is fascinating and nowhere is this ethnic mix more accessible than it is in Sapa, and its outstandingly beautiful valleys. This trip is a condensed and easier version of the 7 day Ethnic Explorer, designed for those people who are put off by the lack of comfort in that trip. The trek takes 2 days and there is only one long walk. We spend one night in one of the more comfortable villages and travel to and from Hanoi by car allowing you to take in as much as possible of the breath-taking scenery in a short time.
Come and see people who live mainly in the mountains in Northwest Vietnam.
Visit the Black H'mong village,the biggest minority groups in the Sapa area
