Mai Chau is a beautiful valley, 135kms north-west of Ha Noi. This is one of the closest places to Ha Noi where you can see real “Montagnard” villages. It is a complex of villages, farms and huts spread out over a large valley surrounded by mountains.
The main inhabitant is the ethnic White Thai, which is considered to be distantly related to tribes in Thailand, Laos and China. The most interesting thing here is walking from village to village to enjoy the beautiful scenery and see the people working, especially women weaving at the loom to make traditional brocades. We offer some of the trekking tours in Mai Chau to explore the landscape and traditional culture there.
