After enjoying breakfast at the homestay, you will depart for Trung Khanh which lies right on the border with China.
Here you will have another chance to meet and interact with the local Nung people living in the village of Phuoc
Sen, a mountainous village famous for its traditional blacksmithing. The farming tools made here are an integral part of
the lifestyle which is evident in the surrounding rice paddies and fields. Nestled amongst these amazing landscapes is
the breathtaking Ban Gioc Waterfall which spans over 300 meters, split half and half between Vietnam and China.
You’ll get some time here to simply take in the amazing atmosphere surrounding the falls, which presents an excellent
opportunity for some fantastic photography. Once you’ve finished at the falls, it’s time to head over to Nguom Ngao
Cave, for a very different, but no less impressive natural wonder. The cave stretches for 2,144 meters underground
and is brimming with incredible stalactites and stalagmites. You will then return to Cao Bang town and head down the
“snake pass” to Ba Be Lake, where you will stay overnight in a homestay constructed in traditional Tay fashion and
owned and operated by a local Tay family. Here you can relax and unwind from the day and enjoy a delicious and
authentic homecooked meal.
