There are many trekking routes in Muong Hoa valley for your choice. But we recommend you a hike passing Y Linh Ho commune for those reasons:
Firstly, you can experience beautiful & untouched landscapes down Muong Hoa valley. The hiking route is descending the valley. So you can capture outstanding landscapes of mountains, rice terraces, streams & villages.
Secondly, the village is new to tourism. Therefore, locals are quite friendly and you can expect to see the authentic daily life of local Hmong ethnics: traditional houses of wooded logs, traditional dresses of black clothes dyed with indigo.
Thirdly, it is a soft trek mostly down the valley, though some ascending so anyone can take part on this trekking route. When you trek further down ( near the stream), you will see a very big cable-stayed bridge. You can choose 2 different hiking routes. The first one is turning left down ( before the bridge. Then you just trek down along Muong Hoa stream to Lao Chai – Ta Van villages. The second one ( harder one but nice view) is continued your hike through the bridge up the paved road. Then turn left, you just keep hiking along the hillsides and have a beautiful open view down the valley to reach Lao Chai – Ta Van villages.
