Uncover the beauty of Muong Hoa valley and learn more about the rich culture of the ethnic groups living in Lao chai and Ta Van Village on your cross-country bicycle ride.
Hit the countryside track from Sapa along with your tour guide first thing in the morning. Cycle through the crowded and busy town of Sapa and make your way to one of its most charming valleys. Nestled in a range of gentle mountains, Muong Hoa valley stretches out to about 8 km2 wide and lies at an altitude of 1,000 meters above the sea level. Gentle mist and misty clouds surround the valley in the wee hours of the morning as the golden ray of sunlight slowly wakes the whole valley up. If you are lucky enough to have come during the harvest season, you will also get to see the golden beauty of the valley side farmland before your very eyes. When you are satisfied, continue on your way to your first stop for the day - Lao Chai Village.
Lao Chai is located deep inside Muong Hoa valley and is home to over 100 Black Hmong families. Located in the gorgeous Muong Hoa valley side, Lao Chai boasts a spectacular selection of verdant fields and friendly locals working hard throughout the day. It is normal to see locals carrying their farming tools around even as they play with their children as much of the people’s livelihood depend on the land they cultivate.
Feel free to interact with the villagers as well to learn more about the practices of local people simultaneously. Then, get back on your bike and continue on your trip to Ta Van Village. Black Hmong, Red Dao and Giay all reside in this village with block Black Hmong and Red Dao accounting for almost 98% of the total local population. Therefore, if you happen to encounter a Giay tribe resident (usually dressed in a five-panel blouse split at the sides and buttoned on the right with dark indigo trousers) feel free to ask them your questions to learn more about their culture and custom. Finally, a visit to the local stilted house will wrap up your day tour as you will slowly cycle back to Sapa. Or, if you would like to unwind, you can also take the car and make your way back behind the comfort of a private ride.
