This 2-day trip unveils Ba Be’s mystical lake and hill tribe villages, you’ll experience the friendliness of the local people, eat authentic Vietnamese cuisine and stay in a beautiful homestay

Day 1: Hanoi – Bac Kan – Ba Be Lake (L, D)

Morning depart from your hotel in Hanoi. On the way, stop in Thai Nguyen to visit the fascinating Museum of the Culture of the Ethnic Minorities of Vietnam, followed by lunch in a street restaurant. We then leave the main road to take a smaller one snaking through the mountains and tea plantations to arrive at the Tay village of Bo Lu. Tay people make their living by fishing and rice and corn cultivation and they are renowned for their picturesque stilt houses. In Bo Lu you will enjoy the hospitality of Mr Linh and his amazingly friendly family, in one such traditional house. You will completely unwind from the hassle of Hanoi as you take a 3 hour boat trip, gently chugging around the lake. If you need to cool off, do as the local kids do and just jump in the river for a swim.

Return to your homestay and enjoy a superb dinner with local specialties. Overnight with local family at Bo Lu Village.

Day 2: Ba Be – Hanoi (B, L)

After breakfast at the Homestay, we will go on foot to experience the Ba Be forest at close quarters. You will trek by the slow flowing river, gaze in awe at the dramatic mountains and valleys and natural caves and may enjoy a little bird and butterfly spotting. The national park is home to countless numbers of flora and fauna.

On the way, we will pay a visit to Hua Ma cave, only recently accessible, as few locals would enter due to ancient beliefs. The cave has thousands of stalactites and stalagmites and is still very atmospheric. You can rest your legs on the drive back to Hanoi, stopping for lunch at a local restaurant on the way. Expected to arrive at your hotel in Hanoi about 18.30.
