Day 2: Trek to Kho Muong Village ( B / L / D )
If you rise up early, you can enjoy the spectacular view of the sun rising from behind the mountains and shining down on the farmers as they begin another day of hard graft in the fields. If you like, you can even join the farmers in their morning activities to get a real feel of life in rural Vietnam. After having breakfast with the Thai people, you will begin a 5- 6-hour trek. The first stretch is hard with some steep climbs and some stream crossings, but it is worth as it the next stretch has glorious views of the valley, rice terraces, rich rainforests, and streams. You will stop for a picnic lunch on the way at Eo Ken Village. The trek will lead you to Kho Muong which is possibly the most beautiful village in Vietnam. You can stroll around the village and join the villagers as they go about their daily lives, or relax in one of the three eco homestays set up by FFI (Flora and Fauna International) in conjunction with the local villages. You will have time to drink in the tranquil ambiance of Kho Muong and socialize with the friendly locals as you spend the night in the village in traditional Thai style eco – stilt house.
