5 days Ha Giang Adventure

Adventure & Trekking Tours Vietnam

The remote province of northern Vietnam with the most beautiful scenery. Ha Giang province (Hà Giang) in northern Vietnam is less frequented by tourists. Ha Giang is the place where almost 90% of the population are ethnic minorities with their own cultures and lifestyles. During the last 20 years, whilst other Vietnamese provinces and cities experienced economic development, Ha Giang was the place which seems to have stood still in time.

Day 1 Hanoi – Ha Giang ( Meals included: Lunch – Dinner )
In the morning we depart Hanoi by car and our first stop is at the tiny village in Thung Uyen, home to Dao and H’mong people. This offers us ample opportunities to meet the locals going about their way of life.

As the day progresses, we drive to various walking trails surrounded by magical hills and beautiful villages.

Around sunset, we arrive at the township of Ha Giang. Here, we have some free time to capture the tranquil pace of life before our dinner is prepared in a local restaurant.

After dessert we retire to our homestay for the night in a traditional wooden stilt house. (Lunch and dinner are included).

Day 2 Ha Giang / Quan Ba / Dong Van ( Meals included: Breakfast – Lunch – Dinner )
Beautiful hiking trails and villagers greet us at Quan Ba. The terrain features verdant and small hillocks, seasonal farmlands and is home to Dao and Tay people.

During our hike we take time to meet the locals going about their day. We head down the mountain and find Dong Van, a beautiful town surrounded by impressive rock formations.

Here, we stay overnight in a charming hotel. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included).

Day 3 Dong Van ( Meals included: Breakfast – Lunch – Dinner )
The hike for today is through remote and beautiful countryside of Dong Van where we pass through several villages along tracks used by the local people.

We are rewarded with a brilliant backdrop of picturesque valleys covered in rice paddies.

The H’mong and Hoa people, who are the local ethnic minorities, exhibit their friendliness through their colorful clothing and warm hospitality.

Later we return to the same hotel in Dong Van. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included).

Day 4 Dong Van / Meo Vac / Quan Ba ( Meals included: Breakfast – Lunch – Dinner )
We drive the scenic journey up through rugged outcrops to the beautiful town of Meo Vac.

Set amongst towering mountains, Meo Vac is home to some H’mong and Hoa farming families.

The scenery up here is breathtakingly beautiful. As the sun sets, we descend due south to Quan Ba where we stay overnight in a traditional wooden stil-house. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included).

Day 5 Quan Ba / Hanoi ( Meals included: Breakfast – Lunch )
After a local breakfast we take a relaxing hike into a nearby village with a very lively market.

Here, the Dao, Tay and H’mong people exchange their locally made arts and crafts.
