Itinerary

Pu Luong Discovery – 3 Days – Backpackit

Day 1: From Hanoi to Pu Luong

At 07:30 am you'll be picked up from your hotel in Hanoi to start your trip. Stop en route in Mai Chau to see the famous collection of villages and pretty scenery before you continue driving to Pu Luong. You'll be entering Pu Luong Nature Reserve by road via a breathtaking mountain pass giving you a panoramic view of the whole valley.

You'll 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.

In the afternoon, you will be transferred 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.

Once arriving at a local fisherman's house, you'll have a short rest to gear up for the bamboo river rafting with Dinh and his team. Float along the calm river and enjoy the view, in between learning how to paddle and steer your handcrafted rafts until arriving at scenic Tan Lap bridge. From here you'll disembark and get transferred back to Pu Luong Retreat for dinner.

Continuing to the base of the valley, you weave between roads and farmland, villages and wild fields, ponds and rivers, mountains and open land. Savor the ever-changing scenery as you trek to a beautiful spot to enjoy a simple picnic lunch.
