The North East mountainous areas of Ha Giang offer breathtaking views and interesting subcultures. It is the least travelled area of the north and attracts hardier travellers craving a glimpse of some of the more remote ethnic minority people.
Ha Giang - Dong Van - Meo Vac
Day 1: Hanoi - Ha Giang ( L/D)
In the morning we depart Hanoi by car and our first stop is at the tiny village, 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.
Day 2: Ha Giang - Quan Ba - Dong Van ( B/L/D)
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.
Day 3: Dong Van fullday (B/L/D)
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.
Day 4: Dong Van - Meo Vac - Quan Ba ( B/L/D)
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.
Day 5: Quan Ba - Hanoi (B/L)
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.
Those who relish an energetic hike have one more chance to take a short trek into the mountains while others can stroll peacefully around the village.
This is followed by our return journey to Hanoi, arriving around 6pm.
