Experience one of the most spectacular but least-travelled areas in northern Vietnam. Hoang Su Phi is a remote district west of Ha Giang province. The road to Hoang Su Phi winds its way along high mountain passes offering fantastic views of the valleys below. You will be taken to breathtaking homestay settings where the surrounding area can be explored by foot. The mountainous landscape is covered in thick forests broken up by small tea farms and the iconic, staircase-like rice terraces that Vietnam is so famous for. The remote nature of this region delivers some rare unspoiled beauty. This is the homeland of 12 ethnic groups with each their own lifestyle and traditional cultures.
For the most immersive experience we recommend to travel Hoang Su Phi by motorbike. Sit behind one of our experienced drivers, or if you have experience, ride one yourself! A car option is also available upon request.
This tour will bring you to the best places in Hoang Su Phi and explore real local life and their unique culture directly, admire fantastic views on the way
Nam Son is a small village in Hoang Su Phi, inhabited mostly by people from the Tay ethnic minority. You can recognize their houses by the typical stilts house architecture. Surrounded by rice fields on one side and deep thick forest on the other side. A small stream flows in front of a homestay, slowly finding its way towards the valley. The valleys of Hoang Su Phi are characterized by rivers full of different sized rocks, worn and rounded over time.
Ban Luoc, a location with arguably the most impressive view of rice terraces in whole of Hoang Su Phi. Besides rice, tea is another big source of income for farmers in Hoang Su Phi. With “Shan Tuyet tea” being one of the local specialities. Shan Tuyet tea comes from trees that are hundreds of years old. These trees can be seen in Ho Thau.
Nam Hong is a small village in Hoang Su Phi, accessible by following a steep road up from the valley of Thong Nguyen. The majority of the families who live here are from the Red Dzao ethnic minority. A bit further in the mountains there are villages that consist of no more than a couple of households. These tiny Red- and Long Dress Dzao villages are hidden deep in the mountains and it is fascinating to see the way people make a living here. Kind hearted, hardworking and incredibly hospitable, the indigenous people here are one of the main reasons why visitors come back to visit again. Back at the homestay, after a long day on your feet, there is the opportunity to enjoy an herbal bath.
