REAL SAPA – a 100% ethnic-minority owned business

01
The REAL SAPA experience:

We are a group of ethnic Black H’mong cousins living in a mountain valley near Sapa, in northern Vietnam. We do guided trekking tours, that are different from your usual tours offered by other companies.

We take you to areas that other tourists do not get to see, so as to keep your experience unique and traditional.

Our tour usually treks through the mountains and stays over night in a local family’s house.

Proud of what we do

avatar “Most important is that we give back to our community. Tourism can help my people to make stable income.” – Lang Giang

REAL SAPA is social enterprise, 100% owned by locals. We are a group of Black H’mong cousins living in a mountain valley in northern Vietnam. We grow watermelons, oranges, dragonfruit and bananas on a five-hectare orchard about 37 kilometers from Sapa. Tourism to our area is providing us with new opportunities to earn sustainable salary. With that income, we can help our families and our communities.

Contact me any time if you want to know more.
