Leaving Sa Pa early Sunday morning we drive with land cruiser to Bac Ha Market or picked up from Lao Cai Train Station if you take the night train from Hanoi the night before. This drive will take us approx. 3 hours. We visit this huge market with all it’s colourful ethnic people as Flower Hmong, Phu La and Dao Tuyen who gathers to buy and sell. We enjoy lunch in a local restaurant and we leave Bac Ha and drive to Trung Do village – inhabited by Tay minority. From the village we go by boat down the river, where we experience the magnificent sight of the beautiful caves. The boat trip takes us about 2-2 1/2 hours before we are picked up by our jeep. The jeep takes us back to Sa Pa or to Lao Cai train station depending of your wishes.
