After driving through the pass and stopping occasionally to soak in the best views and snap photos, you’ll have the opportunity to trek the Sky Path, which offers a 360° panorama of Ma Pi Leng Pass. While most only get to see the Nho Que River from the mountain pass, ! Paddling along the turquoise waters while being awed by the mountains above will be unforgettable. We’ll continue to drive through the rustic villages of Meo Vac, Mau Due and Lung Ho, where lunch is served. In the afternoon, we pass through the epic mountains to Du Gia rural homestay, located in the middle of green rice fields.
