This tour will take you deep in the Pu Luong Reserve Nature - Located in Thanh Hóa Province, about 3 hours southwest of Hanoi. Pù Luông Nature Reserve would live up to most people’s image of an idyllic Vietnamese landscape and rural life. Jagged limestone mountains enclose a fertile river valley, dotted with small settlements of wooden houses on stilts. Luminous-green rice fields extend from the waters’ edge to the thickly-forested slopes, which are streaked with waterfalls.
Trekking in the reserve is the best way to discover the real Vietnam and its customs. Walking through some rice field terraces , meeting some Black Thai Minorities , enjoying the beautiful landscape of Pu Luong valley surrounded by mountains covered by jungle , learning about the agriculture system contemplating the impressive waterwheels and relaxing in a bamboo rafting ride on Cham stream are entire part of this adventure.
