Escape to a mystical land

1. Geographical location

Lai Chau is a Northwest border province of the country, 450 kilometers from Hanoi, geographical coordinates are from 21°51' to 22°49' North, from 102°19' to 103°59' East; the province’s North and Northwest borders with Yunnan Province of China, its West borders with Dien Bien Province, the East and the Southeast are adjacent to Lao Cai and Yen Bai, and next to the South of Lai Chau is Son La Province.



Mountain mists combine with the clouds and glistening waterfalls glint in the sunshine, cascading like diamonds towards the valleys below. This is no place for mundane cares, lose yourself to nature’s magic and wonder.


Lau Chau is blessed with mystical mountains, beautiful rivers and streams, tumbling waterfalls, hot-springs and mysterious caves.  Its hidden valleys, nestled between the mountains are home to traditional local villages.


The uniqueness of this province lies not just in its natural beauty but in the fact that it is largely undeveloped. It is a rare chance to explore a land and people still unaffected by modern ways.


Take a boat along the blue Nam Mu River to experience dramatic scenery, swim or fish from its banks and stay overnight at sleepy villages along the way.


This region is largely untouched by modern life and provides a unique glimpse into local culture and the chance to be a part of the communal warmth that signifies the northern highlands.
