Home to the Hmong people, you will pass low wooden houses, meet with friendly locals and encounter elders dressed in traditional costumes. If you happen to be there on a Sunday, the morning market is a kaleidoscope of colors as people from around the valley convene to buy and sell their wares.
For this Vietnam tour we offer two options of accommodation. You can choose to stay in homestays each night or alternate between a two nights at Mai Chau Lodge with a village stay. The Lodge offers the modern amenities and rugged luxury of a mountain retreat without compromising the beauty of its natural surroundings.

DAY 1: HANOI - MAI CHAU VALLEY (B, L, D)

Set off after breakfast this morning for a four hour drive to Mai Chau. The drive takes you through beautiful Hoa Binh Province, located in the mountainous area southeast of Hanoi; the scenery is dotted with limestone karsts. Thai, Muong and Dao people live in the area and you’ll pass several small villages along the way.
  
Descend the last 14km along a steep mountain road into the stunning valley of Mai Chau where a hot lunch will be served by your trekking cook in one of the small villages. Your homestay this evening is in this quaint village and is a great way to experience the cultures and traditions of the Thai people. 

After lunch and some time to relax, take a short 1-2 hour walk around the village and the valley. Depending on the day of the week, visit Mai Chau Market and Van Village.  Overnight homestay in a Thai village.

DAY 2: MAI CHAU - HANG VILLAGE (B, L, D)

After breakfast, we drive 22km further into the reserve where we begin our trekking tour. We trek for approximately 3 hrs before arriving at Hang Village, which is home to Thai ethnic minority.

DAY 3: HANG VILLAGE - KHO MUONG VILLAGE (B, L, D)

If you can get up early in the morning, you can take part in the local life activities, or take a stroll around Hang village before having breakfast. Today is a harder day of hiking, 50% on village paths 50% on an old disused unpaved French road. There are some steep climbs and yet more stream crossings. The trekking becomes more remote but one is never far from a villager tending fields or walking back from early morning market. Relax from the heat of the day in a local home at a village while lunch is cooked before continuing on along the old jeep road to a village nestled between steep karts mountains. Arrive early with spare energy to hike a two hour round trip to a newly discovered and incredibly large cave, hidden on high ground surrounded by thickets and hanging vegetation. It is now protected by the Forest rangers, due to the delicate ecosystem and bat species inside. Overnight homestay in a village.

If this falls into Sunday, you may want to visit the busy Pho Doan market. Followed by trekking to Ma River, we will see nice view of river, paddies and water wheel on the way.
