Bac Ha market tours and trekking

Bac Ha market is becoming more and more popular in the tourism industry. While Lao Cai is a popular travel destination, tourism in the province has been mostly limited to Sapa and the surrounding villages only.

There are vast regions around Bat Xat, Si Ma Cai, Muong Khuong, Bac Ha that remain undiscovered by the travelers, an hidden gem yet to be discovered by tourists.

The town is enjoying an economic boom thanks to tourism, centered around the markets and, more and more, excellent trekking in the mountains north of the town.

Why Bac Ha should be your next destination

Bac Ha is the capital of the region of the Flower Hmong, one of the 54 minorities of Vietnam and of the 6 groups of hmong people. It is famous for its Sunday morning market, where thousands of locals gathered, the women dressed in their very intricate hand-made costumes (it takes 3 to 5 months to embroider one by hand), as well as for the Saturday morning smaller market of Can Cau, 18 km north of Bac Ha

Ban Pho commune

People come to Bac Ha to drink the corn wine of Ban Pho village. Discover yourself what makes this unique beverage worldwide known but even better; enjoy the ride because the mountainous region is very exceptional and well worth the experience.
