Itinerary

Day 01: Hanoi - Ban Hieu
Transfer to Ninh Binh
You will be picked up at either the Halong Bay Jetty - if you have chosen to do the Halong Bay Cruise beforehand - or at your hotel in Hanoi, if you choose to travel from there directly to your hotel in Ninh Binh. Relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Overnight at Emeralda Ninh Binh

Day 02: Ninh Binh
Ninh Binh is also called inland Halong Bay , due to its karst limestone cliffs which seemingly grow out of rice paddies. You will visit the Trang An Grottoes by boarding a small rowing sampan - or flat-bottomed boat - and glide through a seemingly bizarre landscape. You'll pass right through the grottoes and be amazed with nature's work in this part of the world. Afterwards, you will visit Hoa Lu, Vietnam's first capital under the reign of the Dinh Dynasty. At the end of the day, rest and relax or take a bicycle tour to explore the surroundings on your own and witness a spectacular sunset.
Overnight at Emeralda Ninh Binh

Day 03: Pu Luong Nature Reserve
Today, you'll travel from Ninh Binh to Pho Doan, where you can then continue your journey into Pu Luong Nature Reserve either on the back of a motorbike or an ox cart. On arrival at your homestay, you'll take an easy trek around the minority villages in the area, and hike through the main evergreen forest in the reserve and learn about the diverse flora and fauna of the region. There are reportedly at least 1,109 plant species growing inside the reserve, along with 84 mammals, 162 birds and 158 butterfly species. You then continue on until you return to your homestay for a hearty dinner.
You spend the night at the beautiful Les Bains de Hieu Ecolodge which lays in the midst of the Pu Luong National Reserve.

Day 04: Soft Trek through the Nature Reserve - Hanoi
After a hearty breakfast, you'll start an easy treck back towards where the car is parked, passing waterfalls and Minority Villages en route and indulge in the natural beauty of the surroundings.
On arrival in Pho Doan, your car will take you to Hanoi.
