  • ETHNIC MINORITIES OF VIETNAM
    There is nothing better than walking amongst the rice paddy patchwork that makes up the mountains of northwest Vietnam . To awake and wander off from the village among the clouds and watch as the mist rises from the mountaintops is unforgettable. Vietnam is home to 54 ethnic minorities and a number of these have made the mountainous region of the north their base. During our time here we’ll meet many of these fascinating people and have the privilege of staying as guests in their villages. As we wander through the mountains we're constantly met by the delighted squeals and smiles of children and we'll see many members of the ethnic groups who still wear their traditional dress. We'll meet people dressed in exquisite hand-embroidered clothes and others weaving fabrics, embroidering ancient patterns, dying cloth with indigo and using beeswax to create a batik design. The ethnic groups are well adapted to the harsh life on hillsides, and you will see many terraces built into the slopes where rice and vegetables are grown

    Where Do I Begin?

Though an entry visa is required, our tour experts can help you obtain your visa upon arrival at any three major border points (Tan Son Nhat Airport, Ho Chi Minh City; Noi Bai Airport, Hanoi; Da Nang International Airport).

    Itinerary

    Day 1 : Hanoi - Ba Be Lake (B/L/D)

    Our guide and driver will pick you up early at your hotel in Hanoi then take a drive on a 250-kilometer (155 miles) journey to Ba Be National Park. On the way you will have several scheduled stops for lunch and visiting Tay ethnic minority community, the second largest ethnic group in Vietnam after the Kinh, and mostly living by rice cultivation

    Arriving in Ba Be National Park, you will start a boat trip along Nang River to discover Ba Be Lake, Puong Grotto, the rapids of the Dau Dang Waterfall and tiny Widow Island. These poetic landscapes will bring you relaxing time with fresh air and green environment, so don’t forget your camera for nice photos.

    In the afternoon, we will arrive to the stilt houses of the Tay community in local Village and also spend your night in a home-stay in the village.

    Day 2 : Ba Be National Park - Hua Ma cave - Quang Uyen (B/L/D)

    After breakfast at the host family, we will take a short walk visit Hua Ma, a huge grotto with thousands of stalactites. We will then depart for Quang Uyen, frontier town which is inhabited mostly by the Nung ethnic minority people. They still retain their centuries old cultural traditions and are recognizably distinct from each other by their dress.  The remoteness and the simple lifestyle of the area’s local people are highlights of Quang Uyen. Living conditions are very basic here. Overnight in a small but comfortable hotel

    Day 3 : Quang Uyen - Ban Gioc Waterfall - Cao Bang City (B/L/D)

    After breakfast, we will depart for Ban Gioc waterfall, which is closed to Vietnam’s northern border with China.

Arrive at Ban Gioc, you will marvel at its spectacular beauty, which is worth to be the Vietnam’s most beautiful waterfall. After spending some time relaxing and taking nice photos, you will visit Nguom Ngao Cave, listen to its interesting legends then come back Cao Bang Town for overnight in a local hotel.

    Day 4 : Cao Bang Town - Hanoi (B/L)

    On the next day, on the way transferring back to Hanoi (about 310 kilometers), you will enjoy the charming sceneries deeply reflecting the Northwest color: stunning limestone peaks, long-lasting lush paddy fields and untouched peaceful villages. To satisfy your desire of discovering, we will stop at an ethnic village known for its tobacco production, where you can not only learn more about the daily life of the locals but also enjoy the peace and tranquility. There is a stop for lunch before getting back to Hanoi city and ending the trip.
