Explore untouched Vietnam

Vietnam has 53 ethnic minority groups, each with their own language, culture and way of life. These fascinating tours will bring you to experience the culture of the hill tribes living in the Phong Nha Khe Bang National Park near the Laos border. You will meet the ethnic groups of Bru Van Kieu (Ma-coong) and Chut (Arem) and discover their daily life. The area that you will visit is still untouched by tourism.

You will see the cattle roaming free around the houses, people collecting and transforming the rice in a traditional way and fishing with artisanal traps. On the way to reach the different villages you will trek in the mountains and by the streams to see amazing natural scenery including some nice waterfalls where you can swim.
