Tour Description:

A jeep will take you uphills towards Heaven’s Gate. On the way to the highest road of Vietnam, stop by at one of Sapa 10 most magnificent waterfalls: the Silver Waterfall. It is 200 meters tall and is upstream of the beautiful Muong Hoa stream. Water hits the rocks below so hard that you have trouble hearing even yourself talking. Nevertheless, the roar of the waterfall is complimenting the magnificence of the waterfall all the more, even adding a “fierce” feeling to it. After visiting the waterfall, get back on the jeep and head to Heaven Gate. Situating on the highest road of Vietnam, Heaven Gate offers you a stunning panorama view of Sapa. The landscape here is usually cloudy due to its height, wind blowing and the surrounding dense vegetation stretching endlessly easily makes you feel like standing in the middle of straight-out fairytale book site.

Continue on your trip to Tam Duong. Tam Duong is a frontier town located in a beautiful valley, hiding behind mountains and hills. It is home to many different hill tribes such as the Black Dao, Hmong, Man Tien, Lu and so on. Coming to the town, you will find yourself lost in the middle of the authentic lifestyle of the hill tribes here: woman dressing in their traditional colourful costumes with slightly pink tinted cheeks carrying bags of peanuts, cereals or meticulously made brocade goods. If you come here on a market day, you will have the chance of witnessing the busy trade between the people living here. The busy market enables visitors to learn how both lively and self-sufficient life in Tam Duong is. Then, enjoy the meal in a local restaurant nearby and have a short rest before beginning the trek towards other spectacular villages of Sapa. After restoring your lost energy, you will start walking back to Sapa.

There will be three stops on the way back: Na Hum, Bo and Chu Va village. These villages are home to three different ethnic groups, all of which will provide you with an authentic hill tribe experience. Na Hum is inhabited by the Black Thai. Black Thai people mostly live off of their land, tending to their rice terrace fields, corn fields and other vegetable gardens. They own a rich culture of poems, legends, fairy tales and so on, as letters and writings have played a significant role earlier comparing to other hill tribes. Bo village is resided by the Lu minority. You may encounter woman meticulously weaving colourful pieces of brocade when visiting the village. Another special feature of the village is that Lu women dye their teeth black using vegetable, as they consider white teeth a symbol of demonism or beasts from the monster kingdom. Lastly, Chu Va village is home to the Flower Hmong. The name originated from the colourful embroidery on their clothes, comparing to their fellow Black Hmong who tends to dress in darker articles of clothing. Meet and talk to villagers about their culture and customs, their lifestyle and more to learn more about the beauty of Sapa’s ethnic minority groups.
