What we will do?
On our first day:
We will arrive at a mysterious village of Dao people named Khuoi My (about 15km far from the city) after picking you up at your hotel by our motorbikes. This place is the only small village where just The Dao ethnic group lives. They make their living through harvesting tea leaves, planting black cardamom, cultivating rice terraces and livestock.
After arriving at this beautiful place, you’ll get changed like a Dao’s farmer and start harvesting the rice in their fields with the local farmers here. You will learn how to traditionally harvest rice and carry them back home. Then you will also try your hands at fishing at a nearby pond, gathering vegetables and bamboo shoots from a jungle, then make a traditional meal and enjoy it with the Dao people.
In the afternoon, strolling around the village or tending the buffalos with the locals are probably the best things you can do here. Until the sunset, you can prepare dinner with everyone, then get to share stories and cultural talks with the Dao people while sitting around a warm fire pit and sipping delicious tea.
On our second day:
After having breakfast, you’ll follow the local people to get inside the jungle to harvest tea leaves, collect wood and visit the beautiful black Cardamom garden. Afterwards, learn how to brew and enjoy your own special tea made from the tea leaves you harvested. Then prepare the last meal with the people here and say farewell to them. We’ll return to Ha Giang in the afternoon.
