Itinerary details

06h30 - 07h00: Pick up at hotel or at the meeting point and then start departure to Sapa, following Noi Bai - Lao Cai high-way.
Along the way, you will have chance to contemplate the beauty of northwest mountains that terraced fields are sparkling in sunlight or dim in thick fog. Have a short break for 30 minutes then continue the trip to Sapa.
13h00: Arrive in Sapa, check in hotel and have lunch.
Afternoon: Start trekking to Cat Cat Village, about 45 minutes walk from Sapa, this is the village of Black H’Mong hill tribe. The village is on the slope of the hill and easy walking, rice and corn are grown here.
Visiting Cat Cat village, you will have a chance to visit a big waterfall on the stream and the old Hydroelectric Power Station built by French people. That is the image of young women sitting by looms with colorful pieces of brocade decorated with designs of flowers and birds. When these pieces of brocade are finished, they are dyed and embroidered with beautiful designs. A noteworthy is that H’Mong women use indigo plants and leaves to dye these brocade fabrics. And then they roll around and smooth section of wood covered with wax on fabrics to polish them, making their colors durable.
Evening: After dinner, you are free to explore the charm of Sapa by night, enjoy roasted corn, baked eggs beside charcoal fire or go shopping. Especially on Saturday night, we highly recommend a stop at the Love Market which is one of unique cultures of ethnic minorities HMong, Dzao in Lao Cai in particular and North West of Vietnam in general.
Dinner and overnight at hotel in Sapa.
You will leave Sapa for Bac Ha market - a colorful market of the local hill tribes.
You will arrive in Bac Ha, independently attend the market that knows as the most colorful ethnic market of all North-west Vietnam. It is a fusion of many different hill tribes inhabiting around Bac Ha Mountains and here you can easily distinguish them by their different colorful costume dressing.
Bac Ha market is very well known in the area for its color painted to local hill tribe people. There are Flower Hmong, Phu La, Black Dzao, Tay and Nung…They all gather to the market to sell their homemade products such as corn wine, handicraft… as well as an interesting animal. Attending the market, you will find out not only typical traditional custom but also the way of bartering trade existing in daily life of the minority people.
After lunch, in the afternoon, we go for a light trek to visit Ban Pho, the village is home to flower H’mong minority. We are invited to enter several local houses to have some green tea, corn wine, listen to the host talking about their family, talk to them… and then enjoy landscapes on the way to Bac Ha, then get back to Lao Cai and Sapa.
Dinner and overnight at hotel in Sapa.
Morning: You will begin the trek up Ham Rong (Dragon’s Jaw) Mountain.
HamRong Botanical Garden: don't miss the lovely botanical gardens above the main square in town with their spectacular viewpoint from the top. There are fabulous views of the town and the wider landscape as well as tended gardens to visit. This park is essentially a long cobblestone walkway to the top of Ham Rong Mountain. It's a strenuous climb, but the panoramic vista at the top is well worth tackling all those stairs. Along the way, there are countless potted orchids, beautiful landscaped gardens and a few really tacky statues of cartoon characters like Scooby Doo and Mickey Mouse.
One word of caution, the stone stairs could be treacherous on a rainy or misty day.
Have lunch at local restaurant in Sapa.
