We had a great experience in Ngoc Son and Ngo Luong Reserve with Ethnic Voyage, we loved the way that the Thai and Muong Ethnic Minorities lived here in harmony with virgin nature

Going to Ngoc son is like visiting jurassic park without the dinosaurs. The pristine hardly changed environment is superb. The way of life is as it probably has been for decades, maybe even cwnturies (exlude the electricity). Beautiful rice paddies, water buffalos, pigs, corn, herbs and spices within reach. Beautiful waterfall and interesting trek as well. Not too daring or... More

This is a trip you won't likely forget. Not too heavy hiking through amazing surroundings being welcomed by the nicest people in their houses, drink some tea, ricewine and have fantastic lunches and dinners in their beautiful houses. We did not have the time to go to sapa but still wanted to do nice trekking and spend the night in... More

In both occasions, the people in the reserve look after us very kindly. This is the best option for those wanting to learn about the culture and the lifestyle of... More

Having heard about how crowded the trekking villages of sapa have become, we contacted the Handspan agency and arranged a two day trek with village stay in the Ngoc Son/ngo luong Reserve. This ares has only recently been opened to tourism and during our time there we saw no other westerners. The family we stayed with and all the villagers... More
