Mai Chau Hidden Valley Hiking Tour 7days
Ha Noi – Hoa Binh – Tan Lac – Ban Ton village – Hin village – Kho Muong – Pa kha – Hang village – Pom Coong – Ban Voi village – Hoa Binh – Ha Noi
Mai Chau is Vietnam’s secret alternative. This trip to the highlands of Vietnam’s Mai Chau region offers a mix of culture and adventure set amongst some of Vietnam’s most stunning scenery – limestone mountains covered in thick, lush vegetation, green rice paddies and corn fields, plumes of bamboo groves, tea plantations and waterfalls. Hike through villages of the H’mong, Thai and Dzao people for an average of five hours a day, and take for an in depth experience of Mai Chau & Vietnam’s ethnic minority hill tribes. Here you will notice different styles of housing amongst the various tribes and watch families (wearing their traditional, intricately embroidered clothing) plough their fields using water buffalos. It is like going back in time when visiting Mai Chau. Vietnam has many hidden jewels and Mai Chau is highly recommended by TLV Tours for adventure, cultural immersion and relaxation.
