Hoa Binh Untouched Hill Tribes Full Day
Meet and greet at your hotel at 8.00am. Start on a journey west from Ha Noi along the “Cuban Highway” to Hoa Binh, a distance of approximately 80km. En route, you’ll witness spectacular scenery of limestone mountains which mark the beginning of the Truong Son mountain range that runs the full length of Vietnam and forms the main border with neighboring Cambodia and Laos. On arrival in the town of Hoa Binh travel the short distance to Song Da Reservoir to view the enormous hydroelectric Dam, which was built with the aid of the former Soviet Union. You will continue on to one of the Muong villages nearby. The Muong people, one of 54 ethnic minorities or “hill tribes” that inhabit Vietnam, retain a traditional way of life, and you’ll take the time to walk around their village and amongst their rice fields. Enjoy the traditional hospitality of the locals as they invite you into their “houses on stilts” to enjoy tea and rice wine and learn about their methods of cultivation and way of life. Return to your hotel at about 5.00pm.
