We then leave the main road to take a smaller one snaking through the mountains and tea plantations, and arrive to Tay village of Bo Lu, where you are welcomed by Mr. Tuan Linh amazingly friendly Tay family in their traditional house. If it's hot, do like the local kids, just jump in the lake! Superb diner (Mrs Duyen is a true Cordon Bleu) and if you would like to do something crazy ask Mr Linh for tobacco cigarette one meter long. Overnight on their house.  

Day 2: Ba Be Lake Grotto - Waterfall (B, L, D) 

A treat! Breakfast on the terrace, then short drive to the house owner's boat, who takes you through the entire length of the 3 connected lakes (Ba Be - "3 bays") and up the Nang River, to an astonishing site: Dong Phuong, an enormous tunnel (300m long by 30m high) that the river has dug through a lime mountain. The boat then goes up river to the small village of Hua Tang. As simple and authentic as you have been dreaming of! Lunch in a local house alongside the river. 
After lunch, a short walk (20 mn) through the jungle takes you to the very scenic Thac Dau Dang Waterfalls, a series of spectacular cascades between sheer rock walls. You may continue the trail to arrive in a large river bend full of colorful local life, with a small "harbor" where the local unloads goods to then bypass the falls by motorbike and then reload them on boats to go through the lake. Return by boat for another delightful evening at your Tay house.
