Vietnam Highlands

Visitors wax lyrical about the spectacular mountains that stretch out and up between endless rice paddies throughout Vietnam. From the rugged mountains of the North to the rolling hills of the central highlands, and every limestone mountain in between — you shouldn't leave Vietnam without experiencing life in the hills.

Sapa Vietnam

The North

The H'mong, Dao, and other ethnic minority communities who call the Sapa Valley home are the best guides for tackling the tiny tracks that lead through the steep agricultural land of Sapa. It's incredible to think how they have tamed this wild landscape over the centuries and made homes in the hillside. At the end of the day, when you've finished a long trek, you'll be delighted to reach a remote village, a cozy bed, and a home cooked meal at your Sapa homestay!

Sapa treks can last for as long as your legs can carry you, with something for all abilities. Plus, some special accommodation options offer incredible views without stepping foot on a trail!

Ha Giang

The North

Hair-raising roads wind their way between jagged peaks, interspersed with villages and farmland clinging to the foothills. Transport here takes double the time it should, but the views in places like the Ma Pi Leng Pass and Dong Van are more than worth the wait.

This is not a destination for the faint-hearted or those in need of luxury, but you will find gracious hospitality in even the smallest mountain town.
