9 DAYS 8 NIGHTS TO THE REMOTE MOUNTAINS AND HALONG BAY IN NORTH VIETNAM

The landscape of North Vietnam is of legendary beauty, typified by the limestone mountains and their strange formations both inland and at sea in Ha Long bay. The hills are home to an incredible mosaic of ethnic minority people, many of whom have originated in China and we will meet these people dressed in their wonderful colours, on the trails, in villages and markets in a region bordering China. This is an area of stunning natural beauty, a mix of karst formations, stone forests, corn planted in seemingly inaccessible places and emerald rice terraces.

We will first travel by foot and boat on Lake Ba Be, meeting the H'mong, Tay and Dao (pronounced Zao) people. We continue from Upper Tonkin, Cao Bang, Dong Khe, up to That Khe, through amazing mountain passes. The people here are from the Tay, Nung and Dao groups. We then explore by boat the famous Ha Long Bay, but more especially the Ba Tu Long Bay.
