What You Can Expect

Meet your guide at your Sapa hotel and drive south to the Muong Hoa Valley, a landscape of terraced fields between mountain peaks. Between May and October, get a firsthand look at how locals plant and harvest rice; depending on the season, the picture-perfect landscape varies from emerald green to the rich, golden color of rice that’s ready to cut.

Get perfect views of the stunning valley as you follow a footpath from Lao Chai village to Ta Van village. The two villages are home to two distinct cultures: the Black H'mong wear distinctive black tunics and colorful headscarves, while members of the Giay community wear layered clothes with a riot of colors and patterns. Each group has different foods, languages and customs—this is the perfect time to learn more about life in traditional villages and the modern-day challenges the residents face. Stop by a local school in Ta Van before meeting a car for the scenic return trip to Sapa.
