Day 1:

Hello Sapa! (L)

Our driver will pick you up at your hotel or a suggested place by a shuttle van then head to Sapa where your journey starts and where your local guide is waiting for you. When we reach Sapa, take your time for a rest and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before visiting Fansipan mountains by Cable Cab and make sure that we spend enough time to admire the spectacular view on top of the highest mountain in Indochina. Continue the day by visiting O Long tea hills, cherry blossom and spectacular O Quy Ho pass which is considered as one of the most beautiful passes in the country. After sunset, return to the hotel where we spend the night.

Day 2:

Trekking (16km) through Cat Cat – Y Linh Ho – Lao Chai – Ta Van (B, L, D)

After breakfast at the hotel, we will start the day by trekking down to Cat Cat village, visiting the picturesque waterfall at the bottom of the hill. After a slight retrace of steps (but not all the way back up!), we will take a turn towards Y Linh Ho which is home to the Hmong minority, and their hereditary rice terraces are around 100 years old (2 km walking through the rice terraces). From Y Linh Ho we will make our way to Lao Chai, an established Hmong minority village that has been inhabited for centuries with rice terraces, homes, and a vibrant community. We will have a break and a picnic lunch at the river bank. In the afternoon, continue walking to Lao Chai which is the home of Black Hmong & Ta Van village, a land of Giay people. Here, Giay people used to do fishing to pay the cost of living, as a result, their community mainly established close to rivers. Unlike a common fishing & cooking method, here, people fished with bamboo sticks and cooked the fish inside bamboo. Nowadays Giay people mainly plant and harvest rice. After finishing our spectacular 16 km trek, we will spend our night at a Giay’ homestay in Ta Van village.

Day 3:

Trekking (15km) through Ta Van – Giang Ta Chai – Su Pan – Ban Ho (B, L, D)

After having breakfast, we will start our day with a walk through an impressive bamboo forest to Giang Ta Chai, and then on to the village of Su Pan where we can rest our legs and enjoy the stunning mountain scenery as we stop for a picnic lunch.
Feeling revitalized, we will hike the final 6km to Ban Ho village where we will spend the night at a Tay people’s homestay. Their houses are particularly special as they are built on stilts overlooking rice terraces. Dinner will be cooked on an open fire, and some local specialty rice wine will be on offer to help you wind down!

Day 4:

Trekking (5 km) through Ban Ho – Thanh Phu – Nam Toong – Sapa – Hanoi (B)

Enjoy your last hearty breakfast at our homestay before walking to Nam Toong village which is the home of the Red Dao minority. Go passing a beautiful river where we could cool off with a swim. It’s likely a summer activity because the temperature in Sapa could drop to 10 degrees in the winter. The route from Nam Toong back to Sapa city Centre will be our last activity of the journey. By noon, we will get back to Sapa and prepare to get back to Hanoi at around 2:00 pm. If you are planning to stay in Hanoi after the journey, we will drop you off at your hotel (In the Old Town) but if you decide to fly out of Hanoi, our driver will drop you off at Noi Bai Airport for your next adventure.

Founder & Photography Guide

Specialties: Culture, landscape, portrait, hiking, active and adventurous tour

Besides my unlimited passion for traveling, a professional tour guide for over a decade, I have been taking photographs since sitting at Hanoi of the University of Culture in the early 2000s. Photography started as a hobby but it was seriously taken due to my work relations and my significant passion for the beauty of our world, especially in Southeast Asian parts such as Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar.

Within a few years of taking photographs, my works began to be recognized by many reliable international publications such as AFAR Travel, The Times, and The Daily Telegraph newspaper. In addition, I continuously add to my growing profile by winning numerous major awards: 3rd Position of The Independent Photographer 2018, 1st Position of Amateur Photographer of the year 2018, Grand Prize Winner of the AFAR Travel Photography 2019, and a Gold Award of San Francisco Bay International Photography 2020.

I photograph a wide variety of subjects, from travel to landscapes to street scenes. I enjoy documenting the East’s rich cultural heritage and its land soaked in glorious sunrise or sunset light in remote and secluded spots. And, I am very happy to share my knowledge and experience with you. You can visit Luminousvietnamtour to explore tour!
