Discover the stunning landscapes and rice paddies of Mai Chau on this fantastic 2-day tour which also takes you to the beautiful Pù Luông Nature Reserve. This is an essential trip on your visit to Hanoi.
Mai Chau and Pu Luong 2 Day Trip
Day 1: Hanoi – Mai Chau
We will depart from Hanoi and head to the green terraced landscapes of North Vietnam to explore one of the most picturesque regions in the country. On the first part of our journey, we will visit the Mai Chau valley where rice fields and lush green meadows are marked with picturesque rural villages. These settlements are inhabited by the White Thai ethnic minority who will be waiting to greet us and show us their ancient customs and traditions.
Our tour continues by climbing up to the Thung Khe Pass viewpoint. From this lookout, you will enjoy fantastic panoramic views across the valley of Mai Chau. By the time we have descended back into the valley, our bellies will be beginning to rumble. So it is the perfect moment to head to a traditional Vietnamese home to feast on a delicious regional lunch.
With our energy recharged, in the evening we will take a bicycle tour around Mai Chau so you can discover the beautiful surroundings in more detail. We end the day with a delicious meal, back at the traditional home we visited earlier. We will then spend the night here.
Day 2: Mai Chau – Pu Luong - Hanoi
We start the day by having a filling breakfast with the host family before we head back out on the road to the nearby Pu Luong Nature Reserve. This area is known for its rich biodiversity and you can discover the flora and fauna for yourself on our guided hike through the terraced slopes of rice fields. Our walk finishes at the village of Pou Luong, where a traditional Vietnamese lunch will be awaiting us.
After eating, we will finally return to Hanoi.
