Day 1:Hanoi – Ba Be National Park (L, D)
Departing from Hanoi, we embark on a route up into mountain areas north of Hanoi. On the way pay a visit to the Thai Nguyen Minority and Culture Museum where we can learn something about the culture and traditions of the different minority groups in Vietnam. Lunch is at a local restaurant and then onwards to Ba Be National Park. This is one of the largest natural lakes in Vietnam, the landscape dominated by scenic valleys, towering rocky outcrops, underground river tributaries, and a gigantic cave. It is also home to a huge variety of flora and fauna and several local ethnic minorities, including the Tay, Red Dao and Hmong. Following an exploration of a spectacular cave, we hike around small villages and along the riverfront. The night is spent with a local family in the traditional house of a Tay family to experience their way of life.
Day 2:First Day Trekking In The Most Remote Regions (B, L, D)
This will be a very fun and fulfilling day of trekking!  Your guide will take you to visit the Coc Toc fishing village where Tay people make their living by fishing the lakes in this special region. Crossing the Pe Lu stream, you will then have some rough and steep terrain to cover, but not for too long, and after this, the trekking becomes a little easier.  It is well worth the effort too, as you will be treated to intoxicating views and fantastic scenery. Stopping a little later in the day at a H’mong ethnic village, we will have a picnic lunch, and during the afternoon the guide will take you through mountains and valleys past lovely stilt houses and the school of the Dzao village. Then the trek presses on along the winding track to visit Dau Dang waterfall on the border of the two provinces of Bac Kan and Tuyen Quang.
