Fantastic Trip

I had such a thrilling experiences with my 4-day trekking adventure to Mu Cang Chai with Conical Travel. Everything in this area is new, strange to me and worth a visit. My guide also best friend during the trip Ivan helped me a lot to explore this region off the beaten path. We discussed a lot about everthing we saw, drank rice and corn wine together and had great time with karaoke. The trip is unforgettable!!! Thank you Ivan!

We hebben vier erg leuke dagen gehad. We hadden bewust voor Mu Cang Chai gekozen, omdat het aanzienlijk minder toeristisch is dan Sapa.
Alles was goed geregeld! Goede auto, met bekwame chauffeur.
Jack was bijzonder aardig en behulpzaam. We hebben erg veel lol gehad. Alle homestays waren goed en het eten met de locals was fantastisch!
Een trip die we zeker aanraden!
Op de derde dag een trekking gedaan door de bergen. 5km stijgen was even pittig, maar het was het allemaal waard. Fantastische uitzichten, mooie en gastvrije mensen. Af en toe waren wij de bezienswaardigheid. Een trip die we nooit meer vergeten!
