This trip to the northwest highlands of Mai Chau offers a balance of cultural interest and physical activity, set amongst some of northern Vietnam’s most stunning scenery. You will trek for one and a half days through villages in Mai Chau and stay overnight in both H’mong and White Thai villages where you will have the opportunity to observe the lifestyle of these minority people. From the mountainous region of Mai Chau, you will travel back to the nation’s capital, Hanoi.
+ Experience rural Thai life in the mountains of Mai Chau with a homestay – get to know friendly locals, enjoy home cooked meals, and maybe pitch in with preparing dinner
+ The lush panorama of the stunning Mai Chau valley is a photographer’s dream, just begging to be explored
+ Hike through rarely visited parts of a region that’s home to the minority White Thai group, and learn about their culture and customs
