You will have some stops on the way for taking photographs. Arrive at Lac Village around noon. Here, your host with beautiful friendly smile will welcome you to their home that built in excellent harmony of rural and natural scenery.

Enjoy lunch and break then this afternoon you will take the first trek around the valley to visit villages and people to experience the rhythm of local’s daily life Back to your home stay after around 2 hours and just relax with a drink next to the pond and rice paddy to watch the sun setting down behind mountains.
Dinner is served with local taste and great hospitality, followed by a traditional music and dance performance.

This afternoon’s trek is mainly downhill trek following tracks which wind through hamlets and cultivated fields with beautiful views of the Mai Chau Valley below.

At lunch time, escape from the midday heat with lunch and a chance to relax before continuing on to Kho Muong village. Nestled between steep karst limestone mountains, reaching Kho Muong is really one of the most amazing settings of this trip.
