What you'll do

Sapa - Y Linh Ho - Lao Chai - Ta Van In this tour I will take you to Lao Chai village, a beautiful local minority village-based approximately 13 km outside of Sapa. We start trekking in Sapa and the first part of this hike we will be walking downhill. From the main road a small path will lead us into the Muong Hoa valley. The trail leads through an astonishing landscape, The stunning views, with mountains and steep rising rice paddies as far as the eye can see, is only interrupted by rivers, local houses or farmers working their fields. In Y Linh Ho, a charming little town inhabited by the Hmong minority, we will cross the bridge. From here the road goes up and down. We will walk over the edges of the rice fields in the shadow of the mighty Fansipan-mountain which is right behind us. We will cross some hills before we enter the village of Lao Chai. You are likely to see the people planting rice or, if it’s the right time of the year harvesting it. You will learn all about the differences between the ethnic minority groups, you will see before we reach the car that will bring us back to Sapa from Ta Van.
