Sapa Tour: Authentic walking and Homestay in Sapa and transfer by Bus

You will go by mini bus or motorbike first to visit the Silver Waterfall which is about 12 km west of Sapa town and visit many villages in Sapa such as Lao Chai, Y Linh Ho, Giang Ta Chai.. We will pick you up from Hanoi and transfer to Sapa by Express Bus.
Y Linh Ho village is a small commune composed by a dozen of small hamlets scattering on the very tough mountain terrain with high and steep mountains. There are some hundred inhabitants from the Black H’mong only living in this commune. They built their rudimentary houses on their farmland and mainly cultivate corn and dry rice on the steep hillsides. The only way to get to the commune is on foot from the main road. This village is home to the Black Mong who wear very dark clothing in blacks and navy dyed with indigo (often seen on the hands of older Mong women)
