Tour Description:

You will start your ride from the Silver Waterfall, one of Sapa’s most iconic wonders for locals and tourists alike. Surrounded by dense vegetation, the loud roar of the waterfall can be heard from far away and the sound itself is deafening to the ears. Silver Waterfall has long been considered as one of Sapa’s “must-see” attractions, not only because it is one of the 10 most beautiful waterfalls of Vietnam, but also because it leads you to the highest road of Vietnam. This highest road will be your next destination so get on your bicycle and make your way uphill towards Heaven’s Gate, another iconic destination which will allow you a full view of the Sapa highland. Enjoy the view of the verdant meadow, the misty sky and tribal houses in the far horizon as you get yourself familiar with the many appeals of Sapa.

Hop on your bike, pass through the winding hills and make your way to Tam Duong, home to many different local tribes such as the Hmong, Man Tien, Lu and Chu Cu. Most of the tribal members actually emigrated from South China during the 17th or 18th century and made a home on their newfound land in Vietnam. Your first stop in Tam Duong is the home of the Black Thai - Bo Village. Situated close to the river, the house offers a splendid view of the vast rice terrace and the picturesque mountains and forests. The Black Thai tribe owns a variety of proverbs, folklore and legends due to having their own language and words early in the days. They also love to sing and dance, especially the Khap Tay, an extraordinary way of reciting poetry via singing which includes music and dances. Feel free to talk and exchange words with the villagers and be sure to not let their apparent shyness discourage you. As the cycling journey goes on, you will arrive at your next stop in Tam Duong, which is Na Hum Village, home to the Lu ethnic minority. Just like Bo Village, Na Hum offers you an amazing landscape of natural beauty and wonders which are sure to leave you speechless.

In Na Hum, you will encounter villagers dressed in their colourful embroidered traditional clothes walking around the area. One fascinating cultural distinction of Lu women is that they dye their teeth black. Not only is it considered a sign of beauty, but it is also because the Lu tribe believes having white teeth attracts demons and monsters. Later in the afternoon, you will recharge your lost energy and take a short rest before hitting the road again. Next, visit the authentic market of Tam Duong where numerous ethnic groups exchange their goods and products. From brocade to harvested crops, you will find a range of things to buy here. Your trip will finally end with a visit to the Red Dao Village where you will witness their famous meticulously-made brocade and learn more about their health-benefitting herbal baths.
