We offer these two destinations as part of a tour that also includes Ninh Binh and Lan Ha Bay. However, it’s entirely possible to explore them on their own in three days, and that’s why we’re suggesting it here.

With the exploration of Mai Chau and Pu Luong, you’ll have the opportunity to witness a condensed version of some truly beautiful Northern Vietnam landscapes, all within just three days!

We invite you to discover them through gentle hiking in both locations.

Uoi - Lan Villages - Hanoi (B, L)
This is an easy and common walk around the most beautiful terraced rice valley in front of the Retreat. We begin by descending into the stunning valley facing the retreat, where you walk around terraced rice fields. Then, we will walk through small, vegetation-covered paths to slowly reveal the picturesque village of Uoi nestled at the foot of a high mountain. Your camera won't stay still as you take in the panoramic view of the village from above. Continue downhill to the village of Uoi, then to the village of Lan. If time allows, we will visit a local family where we can learn traditional brocade weaving (not guaranteed). Cross the rice fields again to return to the main road to the car pickup point. You will be taken back to the Pu Luong retreat. Return to the lodge, prepare to depart, and head back to Hanoi around 6:00 PM.
