Being one of the most fascinating destinations in Vietnam, Sapa is a city in the northern province of Lao Cai. With various natural scenes, Sapa is also a nest of many hill tribes such as Black H’Mong, Red Dzao, Xa Pho, Tay, Zay…etc. If you’re wondering where to check before packing your luggage and enjoy your Sapa trekking tour to some original sites of Sapa, please kindly refer to this guidance to better plan or self-plan your trip.

Firstly, it’s better if you plan your trekking tour a little longer than normal, 6D5N (6 days 5 nights) is ok or shorter depending on your travelling. Of course, it depends on the time you’re going to spend for the travelling. Don’t worry about the culture shock ethnic people are friendly and so kind. You can see their normal life by joining their daily works, sharing their houses in Ban Ho or the Tay village. Muong Hum market is worth visiting, too.

Secondly, you should have a trekking guide with you. He or she will be with you during the trip, gives advice, helps you, and even bargains for you if you want to buy something from local people. You can get to Lao Cai province by train, and then head out to Sapa by a private van. It takes about 1 hour to get there. Then, enjoy your breakfast and take the rest a little bit before a long trekking.

Now, it is time to really trek. Just trek through remote villages and up and down rice terraces, completely secluded from tourists, now you will be embraced by Sapa culture and community.

The third thing to remember is that you should arrange a homestay which is alongside your itinerary’s way and contact the host or hostess prior to your appearance in order to having the best preparation. The homestay in Sapa now normally is better equipped with comfortable accommodations, hot water, bathrooms and showers but you should check and ask the host before booking. At their homestay, now it’s the time to eat meals, rest and relax before heading out on another 2 hour trek around the mountain that encompasses the village. After trekking session, you can arrive back to the old homestay if you can’t find another closer to your itinerary.

Here are some good homestay villages in Sapa you can select for your Sapa trekking tour:

Ban Ho Village Sapa: this village is located more than 26km far away from the famous resort town of Sapa Ban Ho Village, it’s home to the Tay minorities and perhaps the most picturesque of the whole challenge.
