What to expect
Your day will begin with a mild trek through the breathtaking landscape of the diverse Suoi Ho village, home to a large Hmong population. From here, you will enjoy eye-opening sights of the endless rice terraces and gentle animals domesticated by local farmers. Continuing on to Matra village, you will come across the historic ruins of a convent dating back to the French occupation of the early 1900s. This is the perfect place for photos, as it is a symbol of our unique and flavorful past that many visitors do not get to see. Hike to the remote village of Ta Phin where you will have the chance to meet both Black Hmong and Red Dao minorities. The Red Dao are known for their expertise in herbal medicine and how to use local plants to treat illnesses naturally. Your guide will introduce you to some Red Dao women who can tell you more about their many remedies and how they're made. A Red Dao herbal medicine bath can be arranged for you if you like, so please ask. Transportation will be provided from Ta Phin back to Sapa.
