Mai Chau – Pu Luong trek

on request

The Pu Luong limestone landscape is an area of outstanding beauty, culture interest and high biodiversity value stretching from Mai Chau in the North to West to Cuc Phuong national park in the South East. It is blessed with rich forest, limestone panoramas, magnificent rice terraces and breathtaking scenery.



Day 1: Hanoi – Mai Chau

Depart for Mai Chau, driving through a most picturesque countryside landscape of Vietnam. With tranquil rice fields, wooden houses on stilts and locals in conical hats going about their daily lives, this rural idyll seems a world away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Hanoi.
In the afternoon, take a walking tour around Mai Chau. This two-hour walk through selected White Thai villages is very flexible to your preferences and physical ability. Walk along mostly paved roads through weaving villages, rice fields and rural scenes to observe how some of the local White Thai people live. We may even get to visit the home of a White Thai villager!

Day 2: Mai Chau – Pu Luong Nature Reserve Trek – Mai Chau – Hanoi 

The Pu Luong Nature Reserve is a spectacularly scenic national park located some 30km from Mai Chau. After our transfer there, we’ll trek through the picturesque forest along mostly dirt paths to visit Thai and Muong ethnic minority villages with their simple houses, often with buffalo underneath. This moderate walk has both even stretches through the villages and rice fields and hilly
inclines into the forested mountains where we can take off our shoes and wade through mountain streams for some fantastic photo opportunities. After a picnic lunch (with sandwich of your choice) in the Eo Ken Village, we’ll trek to the Thai and Muong area around the Pa Ban Village with its lush farmlands and beautiful mountain scenery before boarding our transport back to Mai Chau then transfer direct to Hanoi. Arrive Hanoi in the evening.
