Detailed Itinerary
  Day 1: Overnight train to Lao Cai Station (GP):   
In the evening you will be collected by our bus and English-speaking guide. You’ll be dropped off at Hanoi train station, from which you’ll alight your overnight train trip to Lao Cai station.

From Lao Cai take your transfer takes about 40 minutes through gently winding road up to Sapa road. Look out the window for typical Vietnamese scenery with a twist; emerald green rice fields built in tiers up the mountainside. The views from the drive are just a preview to the stunning vistas awaiting you in the rest of Sapa. Once you arrive in Sapa Town you’ll have breakfast at a local restaurant before preparing for you adventure trek into the breathtaking Muong Hoa valley. Mingle with the local people, who are no doubt full of curious questions for the visitors to their remote village. 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. Enjoy Vietnamese cuisine for dinner and your overnight will be at a hotel in Sapa.
  Day 3: Sapa – Cat Cat – Sin Chai – Sapa (B, L, G):   
Breakfast is at sunrise in your hotel before preparing for your last day of trekking. 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. Spend the afternoon at your leisure to explore the town; take a wander around the town lake, explore the town markets, or walk up the stairs to Sapa’s beautiful flower gardens. Your overnight will be in a hotel in Sapa.
  Day 4: Sapa exploring –Lao Cai Station (B, GP):   
Your last day in Sapa is spent at your leisure. You are free to explore Ham Rong (Dragon Mount), to wander amongst the fields of flowers in Sapa’s exquisite orchid garden, to haggle over handicrafts at the town’s bountiful markets, to wander around the town lake, try some of the local food. Opt for a relaxing day at a stylish café, well-deserved after the previous days’ trekking, or hire a motorbike to explore some of the nearby mountain roads. Follow the simple signage and reach Silver Waterfall, about 12km from the Sapa city centre. Ascend the stairs for a beautiful view of the whole valley. Head back to the hotel in the afternoon to freshen up before you catch your transfer down to Lao Cai and await the arrival of your overnight train.
  Day 5: Hanoi arrival (DP):   
Arrive in Hanoi at around 5h30 in the morning. You are picked up from the train station and taken to your hotel.
