Day 1 – Hanoi / Pu Luong
Located just around 160 kilometres from Hanoi, the journey to Pu Luong is relatively quick and takes around 4 to 5 hours depending on the route. As we are showing you the best sights of the Vietnamese countryside, we will make a detour to stop at interesting places along the way. Once we pick you up from your hotel in Hanoi, our limousine bus will drive us towards Pu Luong. After riding for around 2 hours, we will take a short break at Luong Son where you can notice the change in scenery and take in the countryside vibe. Our next stop is the local market of Muong ethnic minority group where you can find and shop for any local product. On our way to the market, we will drive along the famous Thung Khe Pass boasting the breathtaking mountain landscapes.
As we continue our journey, we will stop at Mai Chau to transfer into a van and head towards the Pu Luong Eco Garden – The Mountain Retreat where we will rest for tonight. We will have our lunch and check in to our rooms before continuing our activities in the afternoon. At 2:30 pm, we will set off to the starting point of our trekking adventure for the day. We will visit several villages (Chieng Lau, Yen and Ba) of the Thai ethnic minority group hidden in the remote area of the nature reserve. To reach the villages, we need to go through the rice terraces and sugarcane fields as well as the suspension bridges. Once we arrive, get ready to interact with the locals and learn about their daily routines as well as traditions! In fact, we could also learn about the traditional agricultural method when we make a stop at the giant water wheels near the duck farms. After trekking for the entire afternoon, we will relax and enjoy a pleasant cruise along the Cham River on the bamboo raft. Next, we will return to the hotel and indulge in our barbecue dinner with a sip at the local rice wine. Have a good night’s sleep and prepare yourself for the awaiting adventure!
Day 2 – Pu Luong / Hanoi
Rise and shine! Enjoy a hearty breakfast at the hotel while admiring the stunning panoramic views of the surrounding nature. Similar to the first day, our main activity today is trekking around the Pu Luong Nature Reserve. However, the trail we are going to challenge is more difficult and tougher than before. We will need to cross the stream and trek through the paddy fields in order to reach the rural villages of the Black Thai minority group. As we travel from one village to another, we will get to have a better understanding of the local culture and notice the differences among the tribes.
The most interesting village we are visiting today is the Kho Muong Village. As it is hidden amidst the lush jungles and mountain ranges, we need to walk and hike for around 6 kilometres to reach this isolated village. Besides the rich local culture that has been passed down for over 3 centuries, the village also houses the natural beauty in the form of Doi Cave (Bat Cave). As the largest cave in Pu Luong, Doi Cave is rich in biodiversity and is home to 5 species of bat colonies. The spectacular formations of stalactites and stalagmites also increase the appeal of this cave. Feel free to explore the cave and marvel at this natural wonder! Once we complete our trekking adventure, we will return to the hotel and enjoy our lunch. You will have free time to unwind at the hotel or wander around the area before we return to Hanoi. At 2 pm, we will board the van to Mai Chau to transfer into our limousine bus which will take us back to the city. Our tour ends as we drop you off at your hotel in Hanoi.
