activities considered by travellers as must-do's when you
are in Vietnam....
Ban Ho village
Though Ban Ho is not too far from the center of Sapa not many tourists
have visited the village because of the tough approach road, which is
under construction and slippery in the rainy season.
However, the village is also accessible by driving from Sapa to Su Pan
Village and then trekking 10 kilometers to Ban Ho.
Ban Ho is worth the somewhat difficult journey to get there, as the
village rewards visitors with stunning views of unspoiled sites and an
opportunity to discover the daily activities of the ethnic people Tay.
On the way to the waterfalls, which were named by locals after seeing
fish jumping out of the water in the old days, visitors will pass brooks
gently running down bamboo cylinders that locals use to channel the
water into their terraced paddy fields, wooden houses perched on the
sides of rolling hills and wild flowers.
When they emerge from the water in the dry season the boulders and
stones along the Lavie Stream are artworks that resemble different
figures, depending on the imagination of viewers. In the rainy season
from May till September visitors can see water flowers created by the
splashing water running into the boulders.
The trails and roads from Ban Ho also lead to the quiet Red Dao Village
of Nam Toong and other ethnic communities, where trekkers can enjoy the
best of Northern Vietnam, such as deep valleys, amazing mountains and
