Day 1: Hanoi - Ba Be Lake (L, D)
We’ll pick you up at your hotel in Hanoi at 7:30am and drive to Ba Be National Park. We’ll stop for lunch along the way before arriving at our homestay in Pac Ngoi. After we’ve settled in, we’ll take you for a tour of Hua Ma cave, followed by a home cooked family dinner and an overnight stay in our homestay.
Day 2: Trekking In Ba Be National Park (B, L, D)
Today is dedicated to trekking. You begin by visiting Coc Toc Village which is inhabited by Tays, before crossing Pelu Stream and climbing some steep terrain. Your effort here will be rewarded once you gain some altitude and spectacular panoramic views of the park present themselves. We’ll stop in a H’mong village for a picnic lunch, before passing by some Dzao houses and visiting a second H’mong village. We then return to our homestay for dinner and an overnight stay.
Day 3: Ba Be Lake - Hanoi (B, L)
After breakfast we set out on a boat-trip across Ba Be Lake and up the winding Nang River. Eventually we’ll reach Puong Cave which is famous for its array of stalactites and stalagmites. After exploring the cave, we will drive you back in Hanoi, at which time you can relax and take in the views along the way, before reaching Hanoi around 5:30pm.
