What turned from being a brilliant trek to a wonderful life experience with Trekking Sapa.
The first day trek is through the mountains, it is tiring so be prepared for a slog, the local guide will accommodate to your needs, but this isn’t a walk up a hill. The views, and dramatic scenery as you climb gets better and better. If you’re lucky you’ll see some nature too.
The homestay you will receive some of the best food you’ll eat in Vietnam (this is a week or so after the visit and no tummy troubles, so don’t worry).
The second day is more mountain climbing but it’s mixed in with local villages walking through their farms and getting to see the day to day life.
Make sure you ask about the Hmong people, they are very proud of their heritage and it’s a fascinating story.
I could go on, but you should see for yourself!
