What to expect
In this Sapa tour you make a beautiful trek through the rice fields and authentic villages of hill tribes, but you spend the night in a comfortable hotel with a beautiful view.
Night 1: Hanoi night train
Make your own way to Hanoi train station.
Take the night train to Lao Cai. Overnight on the train is based on a bed in a shared 4-bed cabin. For a complete private cabin you need to contact us.
Day 1: Sapa
Arriving at the Lao Cai station early in the morning, you will be met to be taken to Sapa.
Breakfast will be prepared for you in Sapa before you start your Sapa adventure.
We start our journey from hotel by jeep or bus or motorbike and go through Sapa Town on main connecting road. The route takes us through a beautiful landscape.
We stop at Silver Waterfall (best in the rainy season). Take time to take pictures of the waterfall.
After the waterfall you drive to the highest pass in Vietnam: the Tram Tom Pass. From this mountain pass you have a great view over the valley. You can see a winding road that goes towards the villages of Binh Lu and Lai Chau. You will have plenty of time to take pictures and enjoy the view before returning to Sapa.
The afternoon is free to explore the town of Sapa. Walk up the alley, climb to the viewpoint over Sapa on Ham Rung mountain or take a short walk to Cat Cat village.
In the evening there is dinner in the restaurant. Overnight in hotel.
Day 2: Sapa trekking (B / L / D)
After breakfast you will start a beautiful trekking through the famous rice fields of Sapa. Along the way you will visit authentic villages of local hill tribes (ethnic minorities), where you will learn more about their local culture. For the draw you have 3 choices:
Option 1: Standard trekking
- Route: Y Linh Ho – Lao Cai – Ta Van
- Difficulty: Easy – Medium
This is one of our most popular treks. The route takes you to villages in the Muong Hoa Valley, inhabited by a variety of ethical minorities, including Black H’mong and Zay. We move over
back roads and local paths between the terraced rice fields.
Option 2: Private trekking
- Route: Giang Ta Chai – Su Phan – Ban Ho
- Difficulty: Easy – Medium
The popularity of this trek lies in the fact that the traveler continues down the valley to the village of Ban Ho. The scenery is beautiful and at Ban Ho there is the opportunity to meet people from the Tay minority. It is one of the easier walks where part of the trek follows the main route on the paved road that winds its way through the valley and is therefore particularly suitable for families with children.
Option 3: Off track to be beaten (private)
- Route: Su Phan – Ban Ho – Thanh Pu
- Difficulty: Medium – Difficult
The main draw of the trek is the fact that it explores an area further through the valley that does not receive many visitors. The walk will take you to two Tay villages: the Tay village of Ban Ho and, after a walk through rice terraces and closed roads, the Tay village of Thanh Phu.
After the trek, you will be transferred back to the hotel in Sapa.
Rest and enjoy dinner in the evening. After that you will be brought back to the train station for the train back to Hanoi.
