We will take 1hr bus ride uphill to the beautiful town of Sapa. The ride gives you a glimpse of the stunning vistas and impressive rice terraces. Upon arrival in Sapa Town we have breakfast in local restaurant. You first sneak through the market, already abuzz with activity, then continue to leave the busy town behind. After a couple of minutes, you will be following a rocky road leading downhill to Cat Cat village. Take a rest here before you trek downhill to get Sin Chai village, where you’ll might see the tribespeople at work dying cloth, painstakingly embroidering patterns, tending the fields or huddled over a hunk of stone, attempted to carve figurines to sell at the market.

Have a picnic lunch on the mountainside before continuing to the base of the valley. Immerse yourself in the spectacular landscape as your body is flooded with the adrenaline from your trek. In the evening there’ll be a cooking demonstration from the local people before your overnight in a local house.
  Day 4: Ta Van – Giang Ta Chai – Su Pan – Sapa – Lao Cai (B, L):   
Eat up at a delicious breakfast to fuel the morning’s trekking. You’ll set out for the Giang Ta Chai village, home to the Red Dao minority, distinguishable by their brightly dyed red headdresses.
