We have been working on more new adventure tours for you, we criss-crossed the whole of North Vietnam checking out homes and hotels, inns and paths that are good enough for hiking. We have come up with dozens of different ones which are all very interesting, but we had to make a choice from the ones we thought were excellent and the ones we thought were just good.

We have been working on more new adventure tours for you, we criss-crossed the whole of North Vietnam checking out homes and hotels, inns and paths that are good enough for hiking. We have come up with dozens of different ones which are all very interesting, but we had to make a choice from the ones we thought were excellent and the ones we thought were just good. We have put together some fine walks and hikes as well as visits to locals' homes. We give you a close-up view of life here in the north, you will visit the smallest Ethnic tribe in the north, but you will also see these people working in the fields, dyeing their textiles, even worshipping their deities. You will talk to them, walk with them, sleep in their stilted houses and laugh with them, for they're friendly and delightfully good-humored people. Our Newest packages have everything you could long for. Now, let's introduce some of them, again we refuse to publish them all because of the amount of copying that takes place on the Internet. What we've done is give you three types of hikes, the first a brisk walk of 20 km, the second a real hike into the Ethnic region, and third, for the many people who wanted to spend more time here this year, the three-day tour, which is a fascinating mixture and climaxes with a visit to a Tay village. Recommended! We recommend that you bring your camera but we also advise you to show discretion when taking photographs ofEthnic people. Here are some of our finest hikes:
