In the morning, we will head towards Muong Hoa valley and start trekking by descending into the valley, which are the largest rice paddy terraces in the Sapa area. If we visit the valley sometime in between May and October, we will be able to observe and learn how the locals plant and harvest. On route, we will meet Black Hmong, Giay and Red Dao minorities as well as have the opportunity to discover their different cultures.

We will also have the opportunity to engage in some activities with the local host family or experience optional activities such as:

+ Participate in preparing meals and enjoy an authentic home-cooked dinner with the local family

+ Help in fabric weaving and rice terrace planting and harvesting (if we travel around May-Oct)

+ Join in volunteering activities teaching tribal children in the village

+ Trek or cycle in the villages

+ Talk to family members to learn about their life and culture
