Tour code: GPT20E
Duration: 3 days 2 nights
Route: Ha Giang - Meo Vac - Ma Pi Leng - Dong Van - Yen Minh
  • Day 1: Ha Giang - Meo Vac - Ma Pi Leng Pass - Dong Van (L/D)
    • 7:30am rings the beginning of your greatest adventure in one of the most remote areas of Northern Vietnam. Your guide will pick you up at your hotel in Ha Giang City to start the drive to Dong Van. On the way you will pass by Quan Ba and its legendary Fairy Bosom Hills, visit a French bunker dated from the colonization and stop in Mau Due for lunch.

      You will then reach Meo Vac to start the first trek of the trip, a 10-kilometer hike through Ma Pi Leng pass, a must-see destination in Ha Giang. You will stroll around the valley, cling to the side of the undulating mountains, overlooking the Nho Que river, giving unrivalled views of the valleys and terraced hemp fields, which decorate the mountainsides. Walking this path will give you feelings you have never experienced before. Though it is not advised, if you do not want to trek you will have the possibility to stay with the driver in the car and zigzag down the pass to the end of the trail. You can stop for photos on the way.

      Arriving in Dong Van, you will settle for the night in a hotel and have dinner in a local restaurant.

      Highlights and activities: Dong Van, Mai Pi Leng, 8 - 10 km trek
      Accommodation: Hotel in Dong Van
      Meals: Lunch, dinner

  • Day 2: Dong Van – Vuong Palace – Yen Minh – Ha Giang City (B/L/D)
    • If you are lucky to be travelling in Dong Van on a Sunday morning, do not miss out on the weekly market which gathers all the local ethnic minorities in the area and gives you the unique opportunity to walk through the crowd, witness the trade market of buffalos, cows or chickens, or be dazzled by the colourful booths of traditional ethnic clothes.

      Back in the car, we will continue our loop to the final frontier and travel through Ma Le, the ‘one-eyed ghost’ area. This road remains a secret, it can take you to the northernmost point of Vietnam, Lung Cu, home of the Lo Lo ethnic minority, or to Vuong palace which is our next destination. It is a unique place, home of the H’mong King, whose architecture is influenced by three cultures: Chinese, French and Hmong. It was also used during the French colonization as a secret storage room for opium.

      The tour then continues to Yen Minh, known for its countless terraced fields, posed on the mountainsides. Lunch will be served at your next stop in Quan Ba, before returning to Ha Giang City.

      Highlights and activities: Ma Le, Lung Cu, Vuong Palace, 2 - 4 km trek
      Accommodation: Homestay in Ha Giang
      Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Beautiful and very impressive 3 day tour
Review of: Ha Giang Loop 3 Days 2 Nights
We, two girls and a 7 year old child from Germany had a wonderful time in the Ha Giang area together with our tour guide Nha and driver Bao. This area is one of the last remote areas in Vietnam for tourists still to discover. The mountainous scenery is impressive and people are very colorful and friendly. Nha and Bao did everything to condense the most important sights (Ha Giang - Dong Van, Meo Vac Valley, Ma Pi Leng Pass, Opium Palace and, Yen Minh, Duong LAM Village) within those 3 day...Read Mores including 6 hour travel from and to Hanoi. We stayed at a local H‘mong family to get some insights into their daily live. Three days is definitely the minimum you should stay in that area. However, to experience the region at its best I would recommend a 5 day trekking tour. In order not to loose time I would also recommend to take the nightbus from Hanoi, which is very comfortable.
Nha is a very experienced tour guide, providing you an adventurous travel and showing you the best spots to take the marvelous pictures. Bao is a very reliable driver never reluctant to stop on the way to take pictures.
Thanks for letting us experience one of the most beautiful areas that Vietnam has to offer. Read Less

Thank you so much for your kind words! On behalf of our team, Nha and Mr Bao, we would like to thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and sharing your experience in Ha Giang, indeed the most remote area of Northern Vietnam. You will now be able to talk about it as a local, having walked the same paths as the ethnic hill tribes everyday. Thanks again for your perfect attitude along the trip, we hope to see you again someday! Mr Linh's Adventures Team
