During this original Sapa trek I will give you a good impression of my people and their way of living. The Red Dao people are known for their expertise in herbal medicine, especially medicinal baths, and they use plants from the forest to treat many illnesses.
The first day we will visit different local villages of the H’mong and Red Dao communities. You can enjoy stunning views of rice terraces, and even pass the impressive ruins of a nunnery (or convent), often misconceived to be a monastery. The friendly local people will greet you on the way. The Red Dao use many plants to treat different diseases. They are experts in herbal medicine. You will be introduced to some Red Dao women who can tell you more about their many remedies. At the end of the day you will be welcomed into the home of a local Red Dao family, where dinner will be cooked on an open fire. You can soak your body in an herbal bath and sleep soundly enjoying the serenity of sleeping in the mountains.
After a good night's sleep, a new exciting day of this Sapa trekking tour is going to start. After breakfast you will start the trek to Trung Chai Village. It is located in an exceptional landscape! After having hiked a few hours you will be provided with a picnic lunch. Sit, relax and enjoy the beautiful environment. Upon arrival to Trung Chai there will be transportation back to Sapa Town. You will return home with a memorable Vietnam trekking experience.
