¨ Day01 ( Tuesday ): Lao Cai - Coc Ly Market
Coc Ly market is a rural market on every Tuesday. About 50 km east from Lao Cai town, the market place lies on the bank of the Chay River, surrounded by steep mountains covered with fabulous forest. Going to the market, minority people such as H’mong, Zao, Tay, Nung… from remote villages have to wake up very early and walk up and down hills for hours.
The train arrives early in Lao Cai, meet your guide and driver, freshen up and enjoy breakfast in a local restaurant nearby. Then you will travel along national road 4D about an hour via rich farmland with lush fruit gardens and tea farms, turn left to a tough road for 18 km, passing some canyons, mountain passes and villages to Coc Ly. With your camera in hands you will spend few hours joining the locals at the market for your own experience until noon. After simple Lunch, you will board a sampan and follow the Chay River downstream for a discovery of wild nature and minority life style in this “off the beaten” track region. Late afternoon, we meet our car again near Trung Do village of the Tay and transfer for about 2.5 hour to Sapa.

¨ Day2 ( Wednesday): Sapa trekking to Ma Tra and Ta Phin Villages - Sapa
Lying on the south of Sapa town, this vast valley composes of 3 chambers surrounded by high mountains with thick forest at the top and terraced rice paddies from lower slopes stretching to the bottom. It is home to the Black H’mong and the Red Zao ethnic minority who live in wooden houses scattering here and there.
Starting from Sapa with your guide, you will follow a trail running through fruit and orchard gardens, lush pine forests to a Black Hmong ethnic minority village named Matra, isolated away from the civilization. Chickens, water buffalos, pot – belly pigs and piggy everywhere, some locals will be happy to invite us to their home which offers chances to see their dwellings, weavings on belly looms to makes traditional costumes out of hemp fiber…Our path weaves itself up and down hills, through valleys with terraced rice fields which create spectacular landscapes. After picnic Lunch, we get to Ta Phin Commune where the Black H’mong and the Red Zao live together. It is very interesting to realize culture assimilation: Which can be mixed, which can not! At the end of the footpath, our Jeep is waiting for us for the return journey to Sapa.
