Hanoi - Mai Chau Valley

Set off after breakfast this morning for a four hour drive to Mai Chau. The drive takes you through beautiful Hoa Binh Province, located in the mountainous area southeast of Hanoi; the scenery is dotted with limestone karsts. Thai, Hmong and Dao people live in the area and you’ll pass several small villages along the way.

Descend the last 14km along a steep mountain road into the stunning valley of Mai Chau where a hot lunch will be served by your trekking cook in one of the small villages. Your homestay this evening is in this quaint village and is a great way to experience the cultures and traditions of the Thai people.

After lunch and some time to relax, take a short 1-2 hour walk around the village and the valley. Depending on the day of the week, visit Mai Chau Market and Van Village.

Approx: 150 km with about 4 hours driving,About 2 hours walking

Mai Chau - Hang Village

After breakfast, we drive 22km further into the reserve where we begin our trek. We trek for approximately 3 hrs before arriving at Hang Village, which is home to Thai ethnic minority. We spend the night with a local Thai family who will be our hosts in a traditional house built on stilts. We can stroll around the village to observe daily life activities of the locals before dinner.

Approx: 22km driving and about 3 hours trekking

Hang village - Kho Muong village

If you can get up early in the morning, you can take part in the local life activities, or take a stroll around Hang village before having breakfast. Today is a harder day of hiking, 50% on village paths 50% on an old disused unpaved French road. There are some steep climbs and yet more stream crossings. The trekking becomes more remote but one is never far from a villager tending fields or walking back from early morning market.   Relax from the heat of the day in a local home at a village while lunch is cooked before continuing on along the old jeep road to a village nestled between steep karts mountains.  Arrive early with spare energy to hike a two hour round trip to a newly discovered and incredibly large cave, hidden on high ground surrounded by thickets and hanging vegetation. It is now protected by the Forest rangers, due to the delicate ecosystem and bat species inside.

Overnight homestay in a village

Approx: 6 hours trekking

Kho Muong - Pho Doan - Hanoi

Wake up early to the sound of chickens and ducks and children preparing for school. Take an early morning walk through the village to experience morning life in a farming community. We trek toward Ma River. The trek is quite gentle since we descend a wide-open valley. After 2 hrs trek we will reach Pho Doan Town. If this falls into Sunday, you may want to visit the busy Pho Doan market. Followed by trekking to Ma River, we will see nice view of river, paddies and water wheel on the way. We will be picked up and transferred to Hanoi. Arriving back in Hanoi around late afternoon.

With its eclectic blend of cultures and beautiful landscapes, there is no better way to explore the Mai Chau Valley than a village to village walking journey. This Vietnam tour takes you through the heart of the Hoa Binh Province and Mai Chau Valley and includes unique homestays with the local hilltribe people.

Leave the cityscape behind as you drive from Hanoi to Mai Chau for the start of your Vietnam tour. You’ll be greeted by a local family, your hosts for the evening’s homestay, and take a short walk around the village.

Moving further into the Mai Chau Valley, the next day of trekking on this Vietnam tour takes you to Nameo Village and then through terraced rice fields and lush forests to Buoc Village for another homestay with the Thai people. Along the way you will have ample opportunities to soak in the stunning views of the rugged outcroppings and surroundings with a relaxing boat trip on the Sa River.

Hike quiet paths to the Xalinh village on your final day in the Mai Chau Valley. Home to the Hmong people, you will pass low wooden houses, meet with friendly locals and encounter elders dressed in traditional costumes. If you happen to be there on a Sunday, the morning market is a kaleidoscope of colors as people from around the valley convene to buy and sell their wares.

For this Vietnam tour we offer two options of accommodation. You can choose to stay in homestays each night or alternate between a two nights at Mai Chau Lodge with a village stay. The Lodge offers the modern amenities and rugged luxury of a mountain retreat without compromising the beauty of its natural surroundings.

We had a great time in Mai Chau. The highlight was our trek arranged through AsiaTourAdvisor.com. Our tour was based on what we wanted to do and see – very personalised. Our guide Huan had excellent English. Mr Hong and Huan are remarkable people in the way they help and support the local tribes.
