As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOur trekking hidden trails trip will have you experience the most beautiful parts of Vietnam’s northern mountains. Along the way you will see that the route is free from pollution and rubbish. The reason for this is because for every visit we encourage our customers to reduce on their garbage. Not only that, we instruct them to keep it and throwing it away later in trash bins. Furthermore, we provide our customers with trekking equipment which can be re-used for other trips.
Throughout the journey you will see many amazing views of terraces and villages surrounding the nature reserve. The route is off the beaten track and far away from many traffic. At the Hieu village we have an Eco lodge which is designed by the use of local materials resulting in having beds and roofs made out of bamboo. This Eco lodge does not harm our environment, but benefit it as the focus is on nature. Remarkably, the suppliers we are working together with are locals from that area. When you are inside the lodge and take a look at the lamps – they are made by a local bamboo master with the reuse of bamboos. The reason for this is to provide you with a real experience. Additionally, meals are cooked in such a way to make it taste naturally.
PeopleOne of our first priorities was local involvement by having an Eco lodge. By hiring the locals, we were able to create job opportunities for them. Moreover, a strong bond is created from the beginning between the lodge and locals. This was also an opportunity to teach our employees about the importance of sustainability. To have a change in local behavior and a positive impact for the whole area, we try to spread this knowledge as much as possible. Almost all of our employees are locals from the neighborhood. The local community and the investors worked hard together to provide you an authentic Eco lodge.
On the first day of your trip you are going to the Poom Coom village in Mai Chau where we will take a short walk to visit the ethnic Thai people. In the early mornings you are able to witness a lot of local activities in Pu Luong. Next to this, you will discover more of Pu Luong’s beautiful terraces, valleys and villages. Eventually you will trek through more places to arrive at Hieu village, where you are free to walk around and interact with locals or visit the waterfall nearby.
