Local guide ping (lady from neighboring village) take us for this tour. She was really good in explaining all things & not tired to answer our never ending questions. Really get lot of information about locals life from her. First we visit waterfalls in national park, specially path going to love waterfall through mountain is really beautiful. Mountain, forest, water stream & we walk along with it & moving fog around us. It was memorable experience for us. When we visit top most point in national park, it was cover with fog & unable to see entire valley. For village trek, it mainly from rough road in village, but path is up & down. At some points we can see beautiful valley. We can see rice terraces, corn field, cabbage, sun flower, orchids. Walking through 6 feet tall corn fields & bamboo forest was amazing experience. Total you will end up walking around 12 Km (up & down), please carry some light snacks on way to eat. Its good trip to experience nature.

The Black Hmong guide 'ppang' is an amazing woman. Kind and bright. She is good at English. Her guide career is 10 years and she is very good at explaining. After the tour of Love Falls and Silver Falls, we trekking them to valley of Ma Tra and Ta Phin Village. The restaurant was delicious, too. Thank you to the 'ppang' guide. Safa is a really beautiful place. I recommend this trekking.

Personally I highly recommend this tour, the guide asked us which distance we prefer (8 or 10km) explained and showed us a lot of interesting things that allowed us to understand more what we have in front of us. She was really nice with us and really made this experience fantastic. You will enjoy every single moment of this tour.

We had some bad luck with the weather, was raining the whole time but still enjoyed our time during the trekking and sights. Would definitely recommend. Our tour guide Chai, very friendly and nice. Her english is good and even during the rain was in good spirits!

Chao was a very nice guide and shared with us a lot about the Black Hmong culture. Very interesting trek
