VIETNAM – Mai Chau – Hiking In The Enchanted Mai Chau Landscape

135 Kilometers from Hanoi, Mai Chau is a small valley surrounded by green mountains dotted with lakes. This enchanting setting gives the chance to reach the peaceful village, peopled with ethnic minorities (such as the White Thai) living in their traditional stilt houses. The paths winding through the rice fields of this magnificent “green stadium” are easy walking. For the more physically active, other hiking routes are available: around fifteen kilometres, for instance, in the shade of the forest’s bushy trees.
