As you set foot in Sapa, the veritable epicenter of mountain travel in Vietnam, the vibrancy of the markets unfolds. A convergence of ethnic minorities paints the town in a riot of colors and an atmosphere that captivates the senses.

Sapa Tour – Y Linh Ho - Lao Chai – Ta Van Villages: A Tapestry of Culture

As the train pulls in at approximately 6:00 AM, seek the familiar "Asia Tour Advisor’s Logo & Your Name” sign, guiding you upon exiting the station. Our guide awaits, ready to transfer you to the former hill station of Sapa. After a delightful breakfast at a local restaurant, take a moment of repose and prepare for the enchanting Sapa exploration.

The initial leg is on the road, veering right to embark on a small path winding down the valley to the Muong Hoa River along Y Linh Ho valley. This trail leads to the Black H’mong community in Lao Chai village. The Black H’mong, a prominent minority group in Sapa, takes pride in preserving their culture, traditions, and distinct way of life. Their language is unique, and their traditional indigo blue clothing sets them apart. The journey continues to Ta Van village (1,200 m), home to the Zay people—a smaller minority group of about 38,000 residing in the mountains of Northwest Vietnam. While modernization has influenced some of their customs, many women still don traditional shirts with vibrant hues of purple, blue, or green. Check into your room, savor dinner, and relish an overnight stay at a homestay.

Approx: 10 km of trekking, Over 30 km of driving from Lao Cai to Sapa.

What’s included:

  • Private car transfer
  • English-speaking guide
  • Breakfast, lunch, dinner
  • Entrance fees
  • Private homestay in the village.

With the 'Homestay' experience, your overnight abode is hosted by a local family in their traditional house-on-stilts. Private rooms on the first floor offer comfort, with shared toilet or bathroom facilities. The sleeping quarters feature a single mattress (thin but adequate), blankets, pillows, and a mosquito net. The restroom is standard and a few steps from the main house.

Ta Van – Giang Ta Chai – Su Pan – Sa Pa: A Majestic Trek and Return

After a breakfast immersed in local flavors, soak in the morning's breathtaking scenery. Leave the village to explore the Red Dao community at Giang Ta Chai, where a short break awaits near a hanging bridge crafted from cane and a mesmerizing waterfall. Adorned in colorful red embroidery and coins, the Red Dao women showcase their unique attire. Following small paths through rice fields, you'll cross the Muong Hoa River and trek to Su Pan village. Here, a jeep awaits to transfer you back to Sapa. The rest of the day is yours to explore the local market and the charming town of Sapa. In the late afternoon, a car will whisk you away for the night train back to Hanoi. Arrive at Lao Cai train station and embark on the night train to Hanoi.

Approx: 8 km of trekking, 10 km of driving back to Sapa, Over 30 km of driving back to Lao Cai.

What’s included:

  • Private car transfer
  • English-speaking guide
  • Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Hanoi Arrival: A Tranquil Return

Farewell, and until next time! Asia Tour Advisor is ready to curate additional customized trips to exceed your expectations.

 
 
 

Sapa is famous for both its fine, rugged scenery and also its rich cultural diversity. If trekking is your thing, why not opt for a two or three day experience incorporating homestays in the villages of your choice. What better way to expose yourself to the cultures and colour of Vietnam’s ethnic minorities on a trek through terraced rice paddies, bamboo groves and traditional villages all in the shadow of Mount Fansipan.

My family and I have used AsiaTourAdvisor for two of our big vacations within the past year. The most recent was our trip to Vietnam. AsiaTourAdvisor takes care of every last detail. The only thing we have to do is get our flight to and from our destination and the rest is taken care of. I tell them how many days and they come up with a customized vacation. The best thing, if there is something on the itinerary that we don’t want, we can tell them and they have another option. They are very flexible and detail oriented. They have great and informative tour guides and safe and courteous drivers. We will continue to use AsiaTourAdvisor for our vacations. Fantastic! Hong is a great guy too!!

Reviewed On: Sep 22, 2023IvonneAustralia

We had already been very impressed with AsiaTourAdvisor from the quality of their written communications when I initiated correspondence with them several weeks before our intended trip. I chose AsiaTourAdvisor based on detailed reading of a cross section of Trip Advisor comments for the top rated Sapa tour operators. To be fair, there is not much of a cross section available for them, since the comments and reviews are almost universally glowing.

One of our favorite parts of the tour was speaking to our guide Sing. He was very open about speaking about her life and culture, and answered any questions we had. We then stayed a night in a homestay with a local family and other travelers. Here there was a great atmosphere as we had a big dinner together and sat around an open fire chatting. Overall it was a great experience and one I would greatly recommend. Andrew -United Kingdom

We had an amazing experience with AsiaTourAdvisor, and with our most lovely, impressive guide , our young guide from the Black Hmong tribe. I cannot recommend AsiaTourAdvisor and the traditional homestay (2 days/1 night) highly enough! We did this trip with our teenagers, who agreed that this was a not-to-miss experience.

Great experience with AsiaTourAdvisor

We had a great experience with AsiaTourAdvisor. Our guide Sinh was exceptional, very patient and fun. We did the 2 days 1 night trek, the weather was quite bad, raining all the time, but we still had a great time. We stayed at a Homestay and it was very clean and the food was amazing. I’m a vegetarian and they were able to accomodate me. I highly reccommend AsiaTourAdvisor, we spoke with other travellers who booked with a different company and their experience was not as good as ours.

We booked the 2 day 3 nights trek with ASIATOURADVISOR and it was brilliant. At the start you sit down with your guide and together you set out the route you will be taking and the difficulty of the trek
The trek itself was so fun and the sights were breath taking. It had been raining the night before so the ground was slippery but this just added to the experience (expect to get muddy). On the way you stop for lunch in a village and it was very tasty.

One of our favorite parts of the tour was speaking to our guide My. She was very open about speaking about her life and culture, and answered any questions we had. We then stayed a night in a homestay with a local family and other travelers. Here there was a great atmosphere as we had a big dinner together and sat around an open fire chatting.
