Full itinerary

Day 1

Hanoi - Heading to Ha Giang

We will pick you up at your hotel in Hanoi around 8am and start our journey northwards through the Red River Delta. We will stop for lunch in Tuyen Quang Town, famous for its verdant green tea plantations. Carrying on, we will arrive in Ha Giang Town late afternoon, where you’ll have dinner and spend the night with a Thai family in their traditional home.


Meals: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2

Ha Giang - Transfer to Dong Van

As Ha Giang still requires a permit, your guide will assist you in purchasing one from the small office in the town. You will then take a succession of stunning passes, over the rolling mountains and valleys. You will stop for lunch in the small mountain town of Tam Son. After, you will travel through the imposing pine forest to visit a Hmong palace which once belonged to the powerful Vuong family. The palace is infamous for its use as a store for opium and weapons and offers a glimpse into the life of Hmong royalty in a different era. After independence, the palace was evacuated in 1950, and the descendants of this influential family now live in France and Canada. You will continue down the sweeping roads where many black H'mong villages hide behind the stone walls until you arrive in Dong Van at around 18:00. You will have dinner at local restaurant and spend the night in a hotel.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day 3

Dong Van - Ma Pi Leng Pass - Meo Vac

 If today is a Sunday, we will take you to the weekly Dong Van Market after breakfast. Here you can spend some time talking to the locals, learning about their culture and traditions, as well as do some souvenir shopping from the wide variety of colourful goods available here.

We then set out for a trek to Pu Lo, a French fortress built in 1890 located on a hill above the town. After exploring the fortress we hit the road again, passing through the spectacular Ma Pi Leng Pass, considered one of the most beautiful natural spots in all of Vietnam.

We then descend into Meo Vac Valley for lunch, before returning to Ha Giang Town where you will spend the night in a hotel.


Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
