3-Day Ba Be Lake and Ban Gioc Waterfall Tour from Hanoi

It’s difficult to experience Ba Be National Park without private transportation and a guide to connect you to the ethnic groups who live here. On this small-group tour—the perfect choice for adventurous travelers—immerse in local culture, landscapes, and lifestyles, and mingle with Nung and Tay people. Along the way, see the Nang River, Ban Gioc Falls, Nguom Ngao Cave, and more.

What to Expect

After pickup from your hotel, learn about local cultures at the Museum of Cultures of Vietnam’s Ethnic Groups in Thai Nguyen city. Enjoy lunch and then travel north. You might stop at a tobacco-producing village before you reach your homestay, with a Nung family in Quang Uyen, in time for dinner.

After breakfast at your homestay, visit Phuc Sen village, known producing farming tools. Travel through spectacular rice paddy scenery to Ban Gioc Falls. Soak up the spectacular views before journeying to Nguom Ngao Cave, Cao Bang town, and Ba Be Lake, with lunch en route. Enjoy dinner with your Tay family hosts for the night.

After breakfast, experience Ba Be Lake: Swim, look for wildlife, and soak up the karst scenery. Board a boat to cruise Nang River, Ba Be Lake, and Puong Cave. Finally, head back to Hanoi, enjoying lunch and a stop at a tea plantation on the way.

There are no words to describe Mr. Linh’s Adventure Tours

We did not book with Mr. Linh but somehow ended up on his tour to Ban Gioc Waterfall and Ba Be Lake and we are so happy it happened that way. It would have to be the best tour I have ever done. The scenery...More

No idea I am sorry. I am not a travel agent or anything to do with the tours. Like you, we were just tourists.
