Sapa off the beaten track 2015

Posted in 1 day, Sapa Excursions, Trekking

Sapa Off the Beaten Track Tours have been designed to give our more active and adventurist clients the opportunity to forgo some of life’s general comforts, see real village and country life, enjoy home-stays with tribal groups, and head off with a sense of adventure. This off the beaten track tour is valid in 2015 upwards.

Highlights:

Leave the busy life behind to enjoy a nice walk in a quiet area. Inhabited by the Red Dao and Hmong peoples. This valley is quiet and non touristic which is quite different from Ta Phin or Muong Hoa valleys where the local peoples have changed much because of the strong influence of tourism. So, you do not go to the touristy places. Go & Travel different routes and we call “off the beaten track”. Let’s see the details of Sapa 2015- the new itinerary from Sapa Travel

Itinerary:

We will visit the following villages in Sapa: Ban Khoang (Dzao) – Ta Giang Phing (Hmong and Dzao)

Met up at your hotel in Sapa by local guide and driver for a short road transfer heading northwards of Sapa along national road 4C to O Quy Ho with several stops for magnificent landscapes of Fansipan, Sin Chai valley and especially amazing flower and vegetable farms . Then turn right to follow a narrow road for half an hour getting through the wild region with thick rain forest covering walled-up mountains, passing several waterfalls before arriving to Ban Khoang, a village of the Red Zao ethnic peoples who live their unique way of life and well maintain their traditional values. The village looks prosperous thanks to the combination of wet rice cultivation on the terraced fields with cardamom farming under the shade of trees in thick forest. Spend over an hour walking to explore this remote village for a brief understanding of local life. Leaving Ban Khoang and process along the road for about 10km to Ta Giang Phin valley inhabited by the Black Hmong who live in some small villages scattering along a peaceful stream.

Enjoy an hour lunch break on the bank of a stream before walking along village path which connects village to village to witness daily activities of local life such as plough and harrow the fields, growing, harvesting or doing some house work. In leisure months men often gather to built new houses or repair parts of old ones while women stay home making their traditional costumes. The walk ends in mid afternoon, picked up for the road ride back to Sapa.
