Pu Luong Trekking from Mai Chau
Mai Chau, The Far North, Vietnam
From Mai Chau, head deeper into rural Vietnam and onto to Pu Luong. Known for its remote hill tribes, luminous paddy fields and traditional villages you'll trek 6km (3.7miles) through glorious scenery, stopping at villages along the way.
Today you'll be driven approximately an hour and a half from Mai Chau to Pu Luong, a scenic journey that takes you to a truly untouched part of Vietnam. Upon arrival you'll head to Pu Luong Retreat, which has fantastic views; here enjoy lunch before descending into the beautiful valley facing the retreat. After lunch you'll trek along 6km (3.7 miles) of small winding paths, mostly downhill. This area is shrouded in vegetation but slowly opens up to the most glorious mountain views. Continue to Kho Muong village in the centre of valley. Here you'll have the opportunity to chat and immerse with local life.
Head afterwards to Bat Cave; it's here where the first ancestor of the Muong ethnic group lived.
Afterwards transfer back to Mai Chau.
