ITINERARY BY DAY

DAY 1: HANOI – PU LUONG (-/L/D)

07:30 am departure from your hotel to Pu Luong. On the way, stop for visiting the Holy Fish stream, a fascinating destination in Cam Thuy district, Thanh Hoa province. The place is well known with a unique and particular type of fish that often swims densely in the stream. It is called the Holy Fish due to many mystical stories on these special creatures.

You enter Pu Luong Nature Reserve by road via a breathtaking mountain pass giving you a panoramic view of the whole valley. You arrive at your accommodation in time for a delicious lunch, followed by free time to explore the beautiful retreat, with its captivating panoramic views and tranquil setting.

You will be transfered to a suspension bridge over the Cham River, where you begin your walk in search of stunning water wheels. Get up close to each wheel and discover how water is moved from river to handmade bamboo aqueducts via simple constructions of all sizes. Transfer back to Pu Luong Retreat for dinner and overnight.

Optional: you can enjoy rafting or kayaking on Cham river (with supplement)

DAY 2: PU LUONG – HANOI (B/L/-)

Breakfast. Start early to descend into the beautiful valley facing the Retreat where you walk around tumbling rice terraces. Trek through small paths shrouded in vegetation to slowly reveal a picturesque village sitting at the base of a towering mountain. Your camera will not be able to sit still!

Continuing to the base of the valley, you weave between roads and farmland, villages and wild fields, ponds and rivers, mountains and open land. Savour the ever-changing scenery as you trek to a beautiful spot. Then you will be transfered back to Puluong Retreat for lunch. In the afternoon, transfer back to Hanoi.
