HANOI TO SAPA
Rise and shine early to depart our Downtown Hostel in Hanoi by bus. Settle into your hotel just in time to feast on a local lunch in Sapa town. Today is absolutely free for you to do some solo exploring. Hire a motorbike and check out the nearby silver and love waterfalls, indulge in a rejuvenating herbal bath at one of the many spas, or just meander through the markets and spend the evening relaxing in town.
SEO TRUNG HO NATIONAL PARK
Wake up rested and ready for the big day ahead. Make your way out of town by bus to Ta Van village at the lower end of the famous Sapa valley. Go deep into the national park with one of our fully licensed local trek guides that will take you on remote terrain through lush bamboo forests and local Hmong villages. Nestle in for the night at an authentic homestay in Seo Trung Ho and enjoy a home cooked meal with your host family, experiencing life like a local.
BAN HO - SAPA - HANOI
Fuel up on breakfast at your homestay as you prepare for your final trek just outside the national park, to the scenic Ban Ho village. Don't forget to snap a few photos to commemorate your epic journey before arriving back into Sapa town. Grab a quick shower, some last-minute souvenirs, and definitely some snacks for the bus back to Hanoi. Arrive at our Downtown Hostel at approximately 9:30pm and tuck in for a restful evening, or head out for a night on the town with us in Hanoi.
