Topas Ecolodge - Nam Cang Village - Nam Pa Valley - Topas Ecolodge

Depart Topas Ecolodge at 8:30 and enjoy the views from the large windows as you make your way down the mountain, passing rushing waterfalls and idyllic countryside life on your way to Nam Cang Village. 

Upon arrival to remote Nam Cang, have a brief tour learning about embroidery and silversmithing in different Red Dzao homes before starting a gentle 1-hour 4km walk through lush green jungles and glittering rice fields to our brand-new mountain hut for a sumptuous Sapa-inspired BBQ lunch.

Rest inside or take advantage of the stunning scenery to take photos while the BBQ is set up, resting your feet in the cool, rushing river or crossing make-shift suspension bridges to explore further. Whatever the case, make sure to eat as much as you can of the wide array of freshly smoked trout, vegetables, tofu, mushrooms, and jungle herbs straight from the grill.

Once you’ve had enough to eat, make the return 1-hour 4km walk back to Nam Cang Village to catch the bus back to Topas Ecolodge, where you will arrive around 15:30.
