    The start of our adventures was a car drive up the mountain the Ta Phin Valley.
    Ta Phin is a picturesque thirty minute drive North of Sapa. Set within a valley with a towering mountain peak at one end, this village is alive with the daily life of the Kinh, Red Zao and Black H'mong people.

    When we arrived we were greeted by some lovely ladies from the 2 local tribes Red Zao and H'Mong.

    Ta Phin is a village of Red Zao’s people possessing a rich culture that has not been impacted by the modern life. Ta Phin is the nearest village of Red Dao’s ethnic group within the Sapa district.

    Ta Phin village is home to approximately 1000 Red Zao and 1500 Black H'mong and a handful of Kinh. The village has 13 hamlets and 20 or more many small communes scattered throughout these hamlets.

    We walked through the countryside and enjoyed the lovely landscape of rice fields, mountains, streams, and hill tribe houses.

    Ta phin village

    Le village de notre guide Mae. Nous aurions du y arriver après 4hrs de marche à travers les rizières mais vu la pluie battante nous avons déclaré forfait au bout de 22hrs et une voiture est venu nous chercher pour terminer le trajet. Il restait tout de même 20mn de marche depuis le village pour arriver chez elle ou nous avons mangé à midi. Un régale! . Moment très sympa avec sa famille.

    Nuit chez l'habitant

    September 12, 2016 in Vietnam

    Ce soir nous passons une nuit chez l'habitant dans les montagnes.

    Le feu de cuisine nous sert tout autant à préparer le dîner qu'à faire sécher nous chaussures.

    Après un bon dîner, la soirée de termine par un bain aux herbes dans des baquets en bois. 😃
