Kayaking Hoa Binh reservoir (lake) can be an experience of a life time. The gorgeous beauty of the reservoir can be fully reflected whilst paddling among evergreen tropical forest, karst mountains and numerous hill tribe villages. Nature and human intermingled within tranquility, just as calm as the slow moving water of this country’s largest man-made reservoir.
Kayaking tour is now available at Mai Chau Lodge with two options of half day tour or a full day program with picnic lunch. A typical trip will start with a drive from Mai Chau Lodge then an two hour walk passing by a waterfall and picturesque landscapes of the Lake. The walk ends at a charming Muong Ethnic styled house settled just by the water. Enjoy a refreshing drink before getting onto your kayak.
