Key information: Hill Tribe Walks

  • Vietnam has superb hill walking all along the jungle-wreathed, mountainous spine of its western flank, but especially in its far north-west. Much of it is inhabited by tribes who still live poor but very unsullied lives in valleys and clearings.
  • There is also a wonderful diversity of vegetation and animal life to be admired.
  • We are researching these walks with a view to developing our usual-quality information: all help, suggestions and photos are welcome!
