We will meet at 9:30am at Notre Dame Cathedral in Sapa town. From there start our trek out to experience and immerse yourself in the history of my Hmong culture. This is ideal for anyone that wants to spend 6 hours trekking through out the beautiful local rice terraces. Along the way we will meet many native Hmong people, walk through several villages, and up and through many mountains overlooking the beautiful rice terraces. You will have the opportunity to learn about my culture, traditions, local tribes, indigo dying, batik painting, embroidering as well as see lots of water buffalo roaming free. You will be able to take some breathtaking photos and have memories to last you a life time! The views and local history is something that you wont soon forget. During this 6 hour trek, we will stop along a local village restaurant to enjoy a freshly prepared lunch, cold drinks and rest for a bit before we reach our final village Hau Thao. Hau Thao back to Sapa town is about 17km, 30 mins by a motorbike or taxi which I can arrange for you. Motorbike is 50,000 vnd ($2 usd) for 1 person and the taxi 250,000 vnd ($10 usd) for 4 people. Taxi not included, but I will arrange for you
Hi my name is Sung! I was born and raised in Hầu Thào village in Sapa. There are 5 ethnic minority groups in Sapa and I am apart of the Hmong ethnic tribe. I live in Ta Van village where I help my in-laws manage Indigo Snail Boutique Hmong Homestay, which is family ran. By living here my whole life I can share my culture, family, experiences and traditions with you. I will take you along some of my favorite paths that only some locals know about which have some incredible views. I have been trekking the mountain valleys my whole life and providing local tours for the past 3 years. I learned a little bit of English at school but have since learned majority of my English from travelers! Thank you for support me, my family, as well as our local Hmong's.
