Sapa - light trek to Ma Tra & Ta Phin Village

Starting from hotel with your guide, you will follow a trail running through fruit and orchard gardens, lush pine forests to a Black Hmong ethnic minority village named Ma Tra, isolated away from the civilization. Chickens, water buffalos, pot - belly pigs and piggy everywhere, some locals will be happy to invite us to their home which offers chances to see their dwellings, weavings on belly looms to makes traditional costumes out of hemp fiber.

Our path weaves itself up and down hills, through valleys with terraced rice fields which create spectacular landscapes. After picnic lunch, we get to Ta Phin Commune where the Black H'mong and the Red Zao live together. It is very interesting to realize culture assimilation: Which can be mixed, which can not! At the end of the footpath, our car is waiting for us for the return journey to Sapa.
