The best of Pu luong and Mai Chau 3 days

Day 1 – From Hanoi to Mai Chau

Included: Lunch and Dinner

This morning you will be picked up at your hotel on the way to Mai Chau. En route we will stop at the settlement of Ha Dong. Here we will learn a bit more about the silks made in this northern region of Vietnam according to methods adhered to by locals for generations.

We head on, passing green fields and rice paddies and winding through the mountains and valleys. Here is the homeland of various ethnic groups, including Thais, Muongs and Viets. We will take in a few of these local tribal villages before lunch, which we will eat in a local home. After you have eaten and met your hosts for the night we take a few hours to explore the area by bike, learning about local agriculture and wildlife. Later in the afternoon can be spent at leisure, walking about the village or relaxing in the quiet surroundings. Dinner will be served by your hosts and you can take in a traditional dance and singing performance. This is a good day to learn more about the local culture, food and day-to-day lives. Tonight you are sure to sleep well in your local homestay.

Day 2: Mai Chau to Don & Hieu

Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

This morning get up early and take in the sleepy village as it wakes up, with the sound of roosters rising locals from their sleep. Following a hearty breakfast served once again by your hosts, we take a drive just over an hour away to the village of Don. Here we will explore the settlement and head down to the rice farms and stream. You will take in the stunning views and, once you have reached the other side of the mountains, be taken by car to the town of Doan. Enjoy a light lunch and a bit of a rest before hiking onward for about six kilometers off road. Make sure to take photographs of the traditional waterwheels along the way. As we approach village of Hieu – the hike affords us stunning views of the surrounding area – you will be sure to be looking forward to dinner. Our hosts will great us on our arrival at the settlement, and you will be served a delicious local meal that you can help prepare. Rest tonight after the rigors of the day in your homestay.

Day 3: Trek to Kho Muong and return to Hanoi

Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Enjoy your final meal with local people before we leave the charming village of Hieu. A fun transfer on the back of a motorbike will transport you to your waiting taxi. We will head first to the Pho Doan market and witness locals trading their wares. Then we have a three hour hike on remote routes through the valley’s stunning scenery. We will reach Kho Muong in time for lunch, which will be served by Muong people. Here, have a rest before our onward transport will arrive to take us back to Hanoi. We will arrive in Hanoi in the early evening.
