We are Trekking Tours Sa Pa, a team of local guides. We come from an ethnic minority group based in the beautiful northern mountainous highlands of Sapa, Vietnam. The ethnic minorities of this area are known for their clever hunting knowledge, house building skills and strong climbing experience from living on the mountains. We currently live in Su Pan which is a tiny village by the terraced rice fields. It’s located at the bottom of the biggest valley in Sapa called Muong Hoa. The valley is famous for hiking, trekking and motorbike tours. Close by are other well-known attractions such as Fansipan Peak, Love Waterfall, Heaven Gate, traditional villages.
When we were young we would follow our moms to sell handicrafts on the streets. This gave us a chance to learn English by conversing with tourists. Without these opportunities to learn English we would not have been able to become the great tour guides that we have become as we weren’t ever able to afford schooling.
We offer homestay accommodation with our families which is a great way to learn about the local people and their everyday life. The homestay has three private bedrooms, a living room, and a small kitchen alongside another big communal room.
We use our local knowledge to create personalized hiking, trekking and motorbike tours for those wanting to discover the best and most beautiful areas of Sapa. We were born and raised in this region which helps us to show you places that many our companies may not be able to provide.

Hey, I’m Chu!
My name is Chu. I’m a Black Hmong girl born and raised in the village of Ta Van. Since more then ten years I work as a tour guide in Sapa and show my customers the world I grew up in. When I was about 10 years old. I went to Sapa and around my village to help my mother sell handicrafts in the streets. By then, I didn’t speak any English. But over the years I talked to so many tourists, that I learned to speak English. I take tourist who want to go trekking to the village I grew up, and to the other traditional villages around Sapa.
