This is one of the finest ‘hill tribe’ treks on offer. An unparalleled opportunity to appreciate the village culture and follow mountain trails that lead deep into the forested highlands of north- eastern Vietnam. Starting in Hanoi we journey north stopping at the spectacular Ba Be National Park with its lush forests, gushing waterfalls and towering peaks. The majority of this trip will be spent on a very adventurous 8-day trek through mountainous rainforest areas. We cover between 15 - 25 km a day and stay overnight in homes of the local hill tribe people. This is a truly authentic journey immersing you in the local culture and landscapes.


DAY 1: ARRIVE HANOI (D)
Upon arrival at Hanoi airport your guide will accompany you to your hotel and assist with your check-in procedures. Whilst there are no activities planned for today, your guide will be on hand to offer any advice and assistance regarding your free time, and this evening will take you out to dinner at one of Hanoi’s superb restaurants.
DAY 2: HANOI CITY TOUR (B,L,D)
City's highlights including the Temple of Literature, site of Vietnam's first university, dating back to the 11th century. Visit The Ngoc Son Temple on Hoan Kiem Lake and the vibrant Old Quarter. The Old Quarter's bustling streets are home to hundreds of small thriving businesses. Following lunch we visit the Museum of Ethnology, dedicated to the country's 54 ethnic minorities. Overnight at hotel in Hanoi.
DAY 3: HANOI – BA BE LAKE (B)
With an early departure from Hanoi we journey towards Ba Be Lake. lunchstop will be at Bac Can town. From here it is only around 2½ hours to our destination. Arrive Ba Be town, check into our guesthouse and then head out for a bit of an exploration before sunset.
DAY 4: BA BE LAKE (BL)
After breakfast we board our private boat for a cruise on the lake. Swim in the crystal clear waters ( if weather permit) before having lunch on board.Then we will work off our feast with a three-hour trek to a Dzao village. Here we will see firsthand how life in these remote areas has remained unchanged. Arriving back at the jetty we transfer back to our hotel. Spend our second night in Ba Be.
DAY 5: BA BE LAKE – CAO BANG (B)
Morning, we take to the road again for the 90km drive (2.5 hours) to Cao Bang. Here the H'mong, Zao, Tho and Nung ethnic minority people live together in harmony. Arrive Cao Bang before lunchtime and spend a little time learning more about the people and their culture. This afternoon we take a short 1 hour drive to visit a traditional village befor returning to Cao Bang.
DAY 6: VISIT PAC PO CAVE, TREK TO NAM NHUNG (BLD)
This morning we enjoy breakfast before departing Cao Bang for the 1½ hour drive to Pac Po, the hideout used by Ho Chi Minh when he came back to Vietnam after 30 years of self imposed exile. It was here that he organized his resistance army against the French. We embark on an 8-day trek covering a distance of over 140km through mountainous rain forest. We will be sleeping and eating in villages of various ethnic minorities and generally living as the locals do. Some of the hiking is quite arduous as we follow ill-defined buffalo paths and trails. We will be rewarded with some beautiful scenery that the majority of travellers to Vietnam never get the chance to experience.
Note: Please note that to respect the traditional customs of local hill tribe people, men and women are not allowed to share the same bed, even if you are married, when we are at the home stays.
From Pac Po we trek 12 km to Nam Nhung village inhabited by the Nung minority people.
DAY 7:  TONG COT VILLAGE (Trekking 20kms) (BLD)

After approximately 3 hours we arrive at our accommodation for this evening at Tong Cot village. There are few vehicles here and most travel as we do, by foot!
DAY 8: TO NA MA (Trekking 22kms) (BLD)
The terrain today is very similar to yesterday, following dirt roads and passing many villages of different minority groups, a great opportunity to experience the different cultures living in the area.
