Itineraries

Day 1: Hanoi - Ba Be Lake

Our tour guide will pick you up by car at your hotel around 7:30-8:00am, as an early start is necessary for all we have in store for you today. On the way to Ba Be National Park, we will stop in a local village to enjoy lunch in a restaurant, before our route takes us up through the mountains and tea plantations on the road to Ba Be Lake. You will then travel to the Tay village of Coc Toc, where the houses are built in traditional Tay fashion on stilts. The local Tay population is extremely friendly to visitors and will welcome you with open arms, introducing you to their way of life central pillars of which are fishing on the lake and rice-farming. This is where you will spend the night in a homestay, to really get an intimate look at Tay culture and daily life. After checking in at the homestay, your afternoon will be free to spend as you wish, though we recommend going for a walk to explore the beautiful surroundings. Following this, we will take you to Hua Ma Cave, featuring thousands of stalactites and stalagmites. The rest of the day is again yours to do with as you please, though we offer the optional activities of guided walks/bike rides around Coc Toc Village and kayaking trips on the lake. If you’d rather spend the rest of the day relaxing and enjoying the serene views, then that’s also an option.

You’ll be greatly rewarded for the effort, as once you reach a higher altitude you will be assailed by magnificent views of the mountains. As you journey ever higher, you will stop in a H’mong village, where a picnic lunch will be prepared for you.

Questions & Answers

  • Asked by Jessica Troedel | 13 Jun 2019

    Can I see both side of water fall: China and Vietnam?

    Answered by admin | 15 Jun 2019

    If you come from Vietnamesde side, you can take a raft (manually row) and go closer to fall, even going over the middle line of the river, there is no problem. But, you are not allowed to land on the Chinese shore. I was told there was border surveillance which we could not see.
