Sa Pa Things to Do: 48 reviews and 113 photos


Another trek from Sa Pa, though this one is longer and tougher. Most tourists would ride there and back in a jeep.

The village is about 16km from Sa Pa and home to mostly Daos and Hmongs. There are 3 ways to approaching this trek, either ride there or back in a van and trek the other leg of the trip or trek there and back.

Note that parts of the trek may be impassable after rainy days, and is mostly on uncharted paths so a local guide may be necessary.

Within the village, you can walk around for a good hour or so. Much more interesting than Cat Cat village in my opinion.

See travelogue for more information on trek.
