We then leave the main road to take a smaller one snaking through the mountains and tea plantations to arrive at the Tay village of Bo Lu. Tay people make their living by fishing and rice and corn cultivation and they are renowned for their picturesque stilt houses. In Bo Lu you will enjoy the hospitality of Mr. Linh and his amazingly friendly family, in one such traditional house. You will completely unwind from the hassle of Hanoi as you take a 3-hour boat trip, gently chugging around the lake. If you need to cool off, do as the local kids do and just jump in the river for a swim.

The national park is home to countless numbers of flora and fauna.
On the way, we will pay a visit to Hua Ma cave, only recently accessible, as few locals would enter due to ancient beliefs.
