Visit Y Linh Ho and Lao Chai villages of the H’mong minority
Morning: Pickup at your hotel after breakfast then start the trekking tour.
Enjoy 12 km trekking route to visit Y Linh Ho and Lao Chai villages of the H’mong minority. Lao Chai village Sapa is 6 km far from the centre town, you will see Lao Chai village Sapa where the black H’mong people are living, it is also the beginning of a valley which is called Muong Hoa valley. From a high point of the main road 8 Km from Sapa town, great view of the whole village open wide to offer the marvelous panorama of the village, backed by high mountains and facing the river. Here you will enjoy the fresh air, see terrace fields, stream, visit and discover some of the H’mong’s families, three large villages with over 100 families of the Black H’mong ethnic, and people here are quite hospitable. In this village which you will have a welcome feeling at any house of the hospitable people there. You can interact them, learn about their culture and customs.
After lunch at a local family in Lao Cai or in a drinking shop nearby the river bank, we keep on hiking to Ta Van village of the Dzay people. Ta Van is a small village set within a picturesque valley of Muong Hoa. A night stay here will give you a close-up experience of the life-style and culture typical of the area.
Convenient to the town center, this popular day trip from Sapa is a good chance to traipse around the rice terraces and experience a bit of rural village life. Hire a car or motorbike for the 9km (5 1/2-mile) road down the valley from Sapa to the Hmong village of Lao Chai (some folks even walk it); it’s a nice ride in itself, with great views of the lush terraces. From there, you’ll just follow the valley for a few miles to the next town of Ta Van . Along the way, you’ll walk through terraced rice fields and among some picturesque villages, and experience a bit of rural life. (I even had the chance to help with some rice threshing — a process by which grains are separated from harvested stalks; you whack a handful of shoots, using a wooden holder, against a bin and loosen the grains onto a mat for collection.)
Here you have opportunity to experience their daily life, work and original custom before heading back to Sapa. End of tour.
