Stop at a scenic roadside village for lunch and to stretch your legs, arriving in Ba Be National Park later in the afternoon. You’ll have time for a quick look around and to catch the sunset. The national park, lake, rivers, waterfalls and caves cover more than 7,000 hectares. You have a lot to explore!

After lunch, continue by boat to Pac Ngoi, village of Tay hill tribe, where you will stay in a stilted house.
