From Hmong villages to Taphin – 1 Day
You will leave the busy life behind to enjoy a nice walk in an area, which is not touristy as well as visit a small village of Black Hmong minority.
You will be greeted by the local tour guide who will give a brief introduction about the whole tour. After that, the trekking expedition starts. You will go off the main road, onto hilly mountainous trails. Your surrounding is filled with lush vegetation, pine forest and fresh air. You will experience the untouched beauty of the area. Matra is the newly added location in a series of villages in Sapa that visitors can go to. The village is about 5km from the town of Sapa. This has around 50 households, resided by only H’Mong people. Ma Tra village has restored the traditional flax weaving loom, forging tools and carved silver production as part of tourism. After 3h walks from Matra, you will then reach Ta Phin village where the red Dao and H’mong reside. With this mix of ethnicity, the culture is this village is rather exciting and colorful. Lunch will be served on the way in a local family.
You will also have a chance to visit the unique caves in the Taphin area. This cave system is small and meandering, leading to all different direction but will eventually lead you to one point. The village also has an old monastery built during the French colonial period. There is also an arts and crafts house displaying and selling authentic jewelleries made by the locals.

Dear Diu, I would like to thank you for the perfect arrangement of the tour. Everything went smoothly. The guide and driver did their work to our satisfaction...
I especially want to say thank you for the recommendation of the overnight cruise of the Lan Ha Bay. The arrangement on board the cruise and the pick up after the cruise were extremely good. The scenery of Lan Ha Bay is beautiful. We were glad that we did not take the Halong Bay cruise...
Thanks again for the service. I hope I can require your service in future.
