Topas Riverside Lodge - Nam Cang Village - Nam Pa Valley - Topas Riverside Lodge

Depart Topas Riverside Lodge and make your way through the quiet streets of Nam Cang Village towards a dirt road framed by bamboo forests and views of the rice paddies in the valley below. Eventually you’ll reach a narrow paved road used by the locals to get around and make the gentle climb up and then down for around 1-hour through lush green jungles and glittering rice fields to our brand-new mountain hut for a sumptuous Sapa-inspired BBQ lunch.

Rest inside or take advantage of the stunning scenery to take photos while the BBQ is set up by a Red Dzao woman, resting your feet in the cool, rushing river, or crossing make-shift suspension bridges to explore further. Whatever the case, make sure to eat as much as you can of the wide array of freshly smoked trout, vegetables, tofu, mushrooms, and jungle herbs straight from the grill.

Once you’ve had enough to eat, make the return 1-hour walk back to Nam Cang Village and then your home away from home at Topas Riverside Lodge.
