After climbing a little bit back up, you continue your trek to Y Linh village and begin a 2km walk through rice paddy fields. In Y linh you can learn more about the culture of the Hmong minority, who have rice terraces from around 100 years old.

Y Linh Ho Village trekking

From Y Linh Ho you make your way to another Hmong village called Lao Chai. See the local products they all made by themselves and view the established rice terraces, homes and experience the vibrant community in this village.

Here you will be welcomed by Mai and her family who run the first homestay owned by the Hmong minority in the Sapa region. You will stay here for the night.

Day 2 - 16 km: Lao Chai - Ta Van - Giang Ta Chai - Su Pan - Ban Ho

When you wake up and open the window you have amazing views over the rice terraces in the Muong Hoa Valley. Enjoy breakfast made by your host, before you continue your trekking to Ta Van of the Giay minority people.

You can always find this tribe close to the river, as they traditionally live from fishing. They have learned fishing with bamboo sticks and also use the bamboo for cooking the fish inside. Today however, you are more likely to see the Giay minority working in fields planting and harvesting rice.

Giang Ta Chai

Continue your trek through a nice bamboo forest, heading towards Giang Ta Chai and from there to Su Pan village.

Su Pan Sapa

Here you can rest your legs, take a break with views of amazing mountain scenery and enjoy a picnic lunch.

When your body is charged you will hike the last 6km to Ban Ho village where you will stay for the night at a homestay of the Tay people. Houses of the Tay are special, as they are built on stilts overlooking the rice fields.

Ban Ho Valley

Your host will cook dinner on an open fire and some local rice wine will be served.

Day 3 - 8 km: Ban Ho - Nam Toong - Sapa

You wake up on your last day from the patter of feet on the bamboo as the house comes alive. Eat a good breakfast for the last part of your trekking adventure in the Muong Hoa Valley.

Trek 3km to Nam Toong village, home to the Red Dao minority. If the weather is nice, you can cool down with a dip in the cool river. You have lunch back at the Ban Ho homestay.

After lunch a car will drive you back to Sapa, arriving around 3:00 pm with a great feeling of achievement!
