Day 1: Into the Wild
Hanoi – Nam Cang Village – Topas Riverside Lodge
Board the Topas Mountain Express in Hanoi and enjoy your trip to the Sapa mountains in comfort to the remote Nam Cang Village. A short stroll through the quiet village paths ends in crossing a wooden suspension bridge to Topas Riverside Lodge, where you can then enjoy lunch to the sounds of the river rushing by outside.
After lunch you can visit the village which is home to the Red Dao people. Famed for their exquisite embroidery and botanical knowledge, you can learn about both on this walk, alongside visiting a family of silver jewelers and paper makers.
If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, ask your hosts for a walk into the jungle to collect the herbs for a traditional herbal path.
You’ll also have plenty of time to enjoy the river’s pools and to explore the gardens surrounding the lodge.
After sunset, enjoy a traditional Vietnamese dinner. If you feel like indulging, you can request a traditional herbal bath in the bath house, made by a local Dao specialist, famous for its medicinal and therapeutic qualities.
Day 2: Deeper into the mountains
Topas Riverside Lodge – Topas Ecolodge
After a great breakfast in the lodge you will embark on a short but magnificent hike into the more remote Nam Pa valley. The scenery here is incredible and photos seldom do it justice. A narrow, paved path climbs to a lookout point before descending to our very own BBQ hut built on the edge of rice paddies and a stone’s throw from a rushing white water river.
Here your very own private BBQ lunch will be prepared, including fresh vegetables and herbs together with local trout.
Take a walk, dare to cross the aging suspension bridge, or simply relax with your feet in the water before a return hike back to the lodge to collect your bags and board our vehicle for the trip up to the magical Topas Ecolodge.
Check-in to your own private bungalow complete with a balcony then spend the rest of the day at your leisure.
