Overview

The perfect combination of holiday and yoga! Based in the beautiful landscape of Lao Cai Province. The scenery of the Sapa region in large part reflects the relationship between the ethnic minority people and nature. This is seen especially in the paddy fields carpeting the rolling lower slopes of the Hoang Lien Mountains. The impressive physical landscape, which underlies this, has resulted from the work of the elements over thousands of years, wearing away the underlying rock.

This 3-day mountain bike trip takes you through beautiful countryside and intriguing villages. You will have the opportunity to observe the local minority communities at work, tending their fields in the shadow of the Chay river massif. The overnight stays in Bac Ha will give you the chance to explore the villages and visit the local market. From Bac Ha you can also visit the Can Cau market, crossing the Chay River by boat to the Bao Nhai village, where a variety of local minority groups can be found.

Highlights

  • Explore Sapa by cycling on the dramatic road
  • Visit Ethnic village as Pac Ngam, Bac Ha.
  • The special market experience: the Can Cau market.
  • Many different groups of ethnic minority people represented make the market an unforgettable experience.
