This trip offers you great opportunity to enjoy the most beautiful valley in Sapa with the terraced rice fields created by people since hundreds years ago, discover the tradition of the ethnic minority people. Wind through hilly roads to Cat Cat, a village just 3km from the town will give you a glimpse of the traditional customs and practices of the Black H’mong. Stop by a stunning waterfall and the remains of a hydroelectric power station built by the French. Follow the dirt trail snaking through the mountains to Y Linh Ho village. Then descending into the valley, you will witness the largest terraced rice fields in Sapa.


Enjoy a short car ride just 3 km out of Sa Pa to Cat Cat village inhabited by a community of Hmong ethnic minority people. The village is known as a cultural site since many traditions and customs of the Black Hmong are still preserved to date. The traditional trades of brocade making and silver and bronze smith are still practiced nowadays by villagers after numerous generations of their ancestors. You can visit the Hmong women by their looms weaving fabrics, which will be later on dyed with sap from leaves for the desired coloration.

Next, your walk through the village will take you to Tien Sa waterfall (Silver Waterfall) where a French-built hydropower station has been in service since 1920. Leave Cat Cat village and trek a 5 km winding dirt trail by mountainside along a small river in a tranquil setting of hilly land with terraced paddy fields. Arrive in Y Linh Ho village, another Hmong residence characterized by simple houses built of bamboo and clay. Slowly wander around to observe and interact with villagers dressed in elaborate silver-studded clothing and leggings.

Trek down Muong Hoa valley, one of the most beautiful valleys in Sapa with the largest colony of terraced paddy fields in the region. Wander through the valley to enter Lao Chai village of the Black Hmong minority people, cross to its other side of the valley to arrive in Ta Van village where you will have a chance to observe its inhabitants. Have a picnic lunch at local house and enjoy tea chatting with the Giay people, small minority group only left in Northern highlands of Vietnam. Car will bring you back to the town
