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.
