In our latest travel video we embark on a short hike from our base in Sapa to visit Cat Cat Village (Black Hmong Tribe) early in the morning. Sapa is the perfect launching pad for trekking in the region to nearby minority ethnic villages. Along the way we were treated to spectacular views of mountain vistas, cascading rice terraces, and wooden homes. Along the way we were greeted by three ladies who asked us a plethora of different questions before trying to sell us some homemade crafts. Although we ended up buying something, it was a little off-putting how aggressive they were. Once we reached the village we spend time exploring around some of the traditional homes and pathways that were lined by simple shops selling everything from trinkets to cowboy hats. I ended up purchasing that cowboy hat :P Feeling tired from the excursion we headed back up the steep serpentine roads that lead to our hotel in Sapa.
