North-West Vietnam

Pictures by QT Luong

The North West is a very remote and undevelopped region that offers the country's finest mountain scenery. It also offers the best chance to meet colorful and varied ethnic minorities (also refered to as hill tribes, or Montagnards), whose traditions have been the least affected by the modern way of life. The region can be explored by adventurous travellers in at least a week-long loop trip along Highway 6, from Mai Chau to Sapa, with a 4WD vehicle.
