We will walk along the stream edge to view the stilt houses. We will borrow bikes from a local family and cycle to the Tày ethnic – 4 area where we explore an amazing cave in the mountain. The journey continues to Silk waterfall which is about another five km by bike. If it’s hot, copy the local kids and jump in and swim. We will have a picnic lunch at the waterfall.
In the afternoon we come back and leave the bikes and walk around Ba Be lake shore and try to capture some great photo shots of the sunset. We’ll go to the local markets for souvenirs and then back to our Homestay by boat. Dinner and overnight at Bo Lu village.
