Northwest beauty through Dutch photographer’s lens

Travelling throughout the Northwest region, Dutch photographer Mick Palarczyk took photographs of the land and the people.

ACTIVETRAVEL ASIA would like to recommend Different Sapa - Different Trek tour. This trip gives you the best Sapa has to offer but not in the normal way. The traditional treks start in Sapa and finish back in Sapa. This special trek starts in Ben Den and finishes in Sapa. The trek is tougher but not less enjoyable since you trek through the hills and valleys of the Sapa region, discovering several different minorities along the way. You will experience overnight accommodation in the hospitable villages of Dzay, Tay and Dzao ethnic minorities. The apparent hardships are worth it though as we walk through some of the most spectacular scenery that Vietnam has to offer and experience unique villages culture.
Highlights:
  • Awesome scenery
  • Tough trails
  • Colorful minority groups
