Day 1:Hanoi – Ba Be Lake (L, D)
Ba Be Lake is about 240 km from Ha Noi located in the Bac Kan province of Northern Vietnam, one of the most remote and beautiful and least touristy areas of the country. At 08.00hrs our car and guide will collect you and we head for Ba Be National Park. On the way we will visit the Thai Nguyen Museum which will give you a good overview of the cultures and customs of the different ethnic minorities in Vietnam. We continue driving, stopping for lunch at a local restaurant in Bac Kan where you may try some local dishes. Upon arrival at Bo Lu village on the banks of Ba Be lake, you can relax and enjoy the beautiful sunset and have a super dinner and overnight at Mr Linh’s Homestay.
Day 2:Full Day Of Trekking In National Park (B, L, D)
After a good breakfast at the Homestay we set off trekking to visit Coc Toc village where the Tay people make their living by fishing and growing rice and corn on their farms. Then we cross the Pe Lu stream and make our way uphill to gain some spectacular views through the valleys. Further on in the uplands we reach the village of Nam Dai, home of the Cash Dao people, where we will have a picnic lunch and take a short break. In the afternoon, we will continue trekking through the forest through mountains and valleys where you will see beautiful stilt houses of original designs and materials. We will also visit a Cash Dao primary school and then continue on the trail to a homestay for dinner and overnight with a local family.

The boat with the kayaks will be waiting for us at the quay and we will boat along the Nang River to the Puong Cave to discover its great stalagmites and stalatites and thousands of bats (18 different species). Then we start kayaking from Puong Cave back to the lake and if it’s hot you might like to jump in the lake like a kid for a swim. We continue paddling and enjoying the dramatic karst scenery and make our way back to Bo Lu village for dinner and overnight at the Homestay.
