Treks to Ta Van and Y Linh Ho in the Muong Hoa valley are more demanding than Cat Cat and Sin Chai, but still easy for travellers of reasonable fitness.

The Muong Hoa Valley is home to magnificent views and delightful villages. The area has been popular with travellers for a long time now - but it’s still beautiful and enjoyable. 

You can easily take a walk independently to Y Linh Ho from Sapa town. You’ll probably want to get a motorcycle taxi (xe om) back. It’s worth noting that this can sometimes be a little tricky to come by in the last hour of daylight. 

Many travellers prefer a guided tour combining both villages. Try and travel with a company using local Hmong guides. The villages are friendly and interesting but the walks are the highlight.
