Ba Be Lake is one of the largest freshwater lakes in Vietnam, and as it is at higher altitude it it sometimes nicknamed Halong Bay in the Mountains. On the way we will visit the Thai Nguyen Museum where you can gain an insight into the culture and ethnic groups from the whole of Vietnam but particularly in the north where locals still adhere to their minority languages, beliefs, architecture and clothing. We will try some local dishes at lunch in a restaurant in Bac Kan.

After having breakfast at the Homestay, we will take our bicycles and head to Pac Ngoi village where the Tay people live. The road undulates and from the hills we can get a great view of the whole of the Lake. In the village you may observe how the Tay people make their living by farming and fishing. 4 km further on we reach Boc Lom quay where we meet our boat man. We leave the bikes in the boat and transfer to our kayaks. You'll now use some different muscles, paddling along the Nang River to the Puong Cave. Here you will see the dramatic stalagmites and stalagtites, and the thousands of bats who call this home. We continue kayaking to the main lake stopping to visit the Fairy Pond and the An Mar temple. If the weather permits there is a lovely swimming spot before returning to Bo Lu village in the late afternoon. You will have earned your delicious dinner and a good night's rest at Mr Linh's Homestay.
