Ba Be lake, Ha Giang and Sapa 8 days

Tour Code : TH1412

Tour Duration : 8 days 7 nights

Tour Route : Hanoi - Ba Be Lake - Meo Vac - Dong Van - Ha Giang - Hoang Su Phi - Sapa - Hanoi

Tour Price : 389 USD/pax

Ba Be Lake lies in the middle of the vast limestone mountain range of Ba Be National Park with large and small islands of limestone rising out of the water, many of which can be explored as you kayak around. There are also several caves to find, with beautiful rock formations that have developed over millions of years. Of those, a good example is Puong Cave, through which the Nang river runs under its magnificent limestone structures. It is 30 metres wide, and 300 metres deep with thousands of stalactite and stalagmite structures and a bat colony numbering tens of thousands. Its picturesque entrance lies to the north east of Ba Be Lake, in the hillside of the Lung Nham Range.

After Ba be we will reach to Ha Giang, Ha Giang is Vietnam’s northern-most province. The mysterious landscape along the Chinese border – a mythical combination of conical limestone peaks and deep, craterous valleys – is probably the most striking in the country. Considered by many as the last frontier for adventurous travel in Vietnam, Ha Giang already has an almost legendary status among independent travellers. In the last few years, road conditions between Ha Giang, Dong Van and Meo Vac have improved, making access to this remote part of the country relatively easy.

Our Last main poin of this trip will be Sapa with so amazing view and lanscape, friendly local people and great local dishes. Vietnam Typical Tours team hope will leave guests the holiday with much relaxing and unforgetable memory.
