    What to Expect
    Day 1: Hanoi – Bac Kan – Ba Be Lake (L, D)


    You will be picked up at your hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter around 8:30 AM. On the way, you will make a stop in Thai Nguyen to visit the gorgeous Museum of the Culture of the Ethnic Minorities of Vietnam. It is considered to be a

    cultural works with large scale and beautiful architecture. About 3000 documents and original items on traditional culture of 54 ethnic groups are exhibited and stored at this Museum. And then, you will have lunch in a street restaurant.


    After that, leave the main road to join a smaller one snaking through the rough mountains and lush tea plantations to reach the Tay village of Bo Lu, where you will experience the hospitality of the host and his incredibly friendly family, in one such traditional house. 


    You will definitely get far away from the hassle of Hanoi when taking a 3-hour boat trip, gently chugging around the lake. If you need to cool off, do the same ways as the local kids do and just jump in the river for a swim.


    At the end of the day around 5PM, you will return to your homestay and have a superb dinner featuring local specialties.


    You will stay overnight with local family at Bo Lu Village.


    Day 2: Ba Be – Hanoi (B, L)


    After having breakfast at your Homestay, you will go on foot to explore the Ba Be forest at close quarters. Ba Be National Park lies in a richly forested area, where is home of many ethnic minority communities. This place has also been recognized as a Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO. You will trek by the slow flowing river, gaze in awe at the rough yet magnificent mountains and valleys and natural caves and will visit a little bird and butterfly spotting. This national park definitely is the place where you can see uncountable numbers of flora and fauna.


    On the way, you can also make a stop at Hua Ma cave, only recently accessible, because many local people would enter because of ancient beliefs. In the cave, you can also see thousands of stalactites and stalagmites and is still very atmospheric. Taking lunch at a local restaurant on the way, you might arrive at your hotel in Hanoi at about 18.30. Your tour comes to an end.
