Start by enjoying a traditional local breakfast, which may consist of noodles, pancakes or an omelette, with a banana on the side, considered a luxury in this remote area far from where they’re grown.
Then we’ll set out on our 10km hike to a H’mong village, where we’ll spend some time in a local school, interacting and playing with the children.
Often our guide will bring some sweets, pens and notebooks to give out as gifts to the kids, something that always greatly excites them and brings a giant smile to their little faces.
Our guide will also pack a basic but tasty picnic lunch that we’ll enjoy here.
After lunch we set out for another 10km of trekking to reach Coc Toc village.
This last leg of the trek can be somewhat challenging and will present a great workout for anyone who’s not in perfect shape.
We’ll cross Coc Toc Stream, where you’ll see local fishermen plying their craft, and this is a great place for a quick rest and refreshing swim before continuing on.
Once we arrive in Coc Toc, we’ll check in at our homestay run by Mr Linh and his family, who specialize in cooking the most delicious and authentic local dishes, which you’ll get to enjoy for dinner before overnighting in this traditional Tay stilt house.
