Trekking a Ta Lung

Cao Bang Trekking - 6 Days

Cao Bang is located 300km from Hanoi in the far-north of Vietnam. It may be due to the remote location and the lack of cost-saving means of transportation from Hanoi that the province receives very few foreign visitors every year.

Hanoi - Cao Bang – Ethnic Villages – That Khe - Hanoi

Our trekking tour in Cao Bang is for the discerning adventure travellers to discover a land of imposing mountains which are home to hill tribes with untouched culture. Besides, the area and the local population played a strategic role in the different wars against foreign invasions; you can recall some of the Vietnamese history at various sites on the journey.Landscape near La Village
