Distance – 3 kilometers. Time: less than one hour

Exertion level – Easy

Transfer to starting point – 1hr 30 mins

It is best to take this tour in the months of October through to May, as the weather is more favorable and a little cooler. This is also the month of harvest, so it is a great time to observe the local people working in their fields.

Start your morning just after breakfast by taking your transfer to Hang Kia (just under one hour away). On the way you will go through the settlements of local tribes, including those of the Dzao and Muong peoples. Here, you will have the chance to stop and see the Xa Linh and Pa Co settlements.

These areas are the homeland of the H’mong peoples – a traditional group who host a very good local market on Sunday. Finally, you arrive at the village of Hang Kia. Here, deep in the valley, you will find the H’mong people. You will be offered rest and refreshment with locals, during which you will have the chance to chat to farmers and other members of the tribe. Following lunch, take a stroll around the village to get a feel for the place, greeting locals as you go. At about 2pm you will begin the journey back to your accommodation.
