Best trekking destination in Vietnam

Before heading to the city of Ha Giang province, you may consider  a stop in Hoang Su Phi. The town is 30km from the right turn at the intersection Tan Quang when you are heading to Ha Giang city. The further the drive, the more you see the difference of living in this area. Hoang Su Phi is the home for many H’mong, Red Dzao and Nung ethnic groups. The best trekking  stop in Thong Nguyen – a small village of Hoang Su Phi, and got a chance to stay with a local Dzao family in Nam Hong . The  simple accessibility in a stilt looking house, it was more than enough during  in trekking time , people are kind with a friendly smile which made you feel at home in lovely house. >>>
