The trekking route can be challenging, make sure you wear right shoes. No high heels for ladies ya. I saw some ladies need to give up because they wear high heals. Overall 14km trekking, wow!

What to expect

There's a whole world out there, lived by people far different than you. Meet a whole tribe of these people in this trekking tour of Lao Chai and Ta Van Village. Visit communities of Vietnam's various ethnic groups and see how they live in peace. Start the tour with a trek to Lao Chai Village, a place made up of several smaller villages. As you go along the tour, you'll meet its predominant members - the H'mong minorities. Up to 100 families of the hill tribe live in the area, along with the other ethnic villagers. Interact with these locals during lunch at a Lao Chai homestay and learn more about their culture. Head next to Ta Van Village, where a much more diverse set of inhabitants live. Watch as they go through their daily routine of farming and animal tending amidst the idyllic nature setting. Marvel at the perfectly preserved culture of each tribe, reflected in their clothing, tradition, and handmade crafts. Appreciate the scenery and make sure to buy a souvenir or two. End the tour with a ride back to your preferred drop off location.
