First day - Distance 16 km
Depart from the Sapa O’Chau Cafe at 9.30am and walk down to Y Linh Ho, a village of the Hmong minority. The hereditary terraces are around 100 years old. From Y Linh Ho, we will make our way to Lao Chai, an established Hmong village where will be welcomed by Mai and her family who run the first homestay owned by Hmong in the Sapa region.
Second day - Distance 12 km
On the morning of the second day open the window and have a look outside — you will be treated to views across the rice terraces. After breakfast, we walk to Ta Van where you will visit the Giay minority people. Traditionally the Giay were fishermen who fished with bamboo sticks and cook their catch inside the bamboo. Now you are more likely to see the Giay working in fields planting or harvesting rice but their villages are still near rivers. Continue to walk through a bamboo forest to Giang Ta Chai, have a scenic picnic lunch, then walk to the main road and catch the private car back to Sapa Town!
