This, I had heard, was the highlight of any trip to Ba Be National Park - a trek up to Mr Hung's Dzao Homestay at Na Nghe and then back to a waterfall, river, cave and the lake.

A sea of motorbikes stretch across the fallow rice field. The world and his wife have arrived for the 3 day festival of Long Tong at Bo Lu village, to celebrate the imminent planting of the rice for the next season. Following on so soon after Tet the week before, the villagers have had a good time of it, but now thousands of people have come from all the surrounding villages to join together in feasting, drinking, games and traditional entertainments.

What I love most about travel is that you can turn a corner and see something you've never seen before or learn something new that totally inspires you.

Today was all set to be an exciting one.  We had been asked to join two of the tour guides from Mr Linh’s Adventures, Mr Quang and Mr Loc, to assist them with scoping out a potential route for a new trek that they are thinking of adding to the already extensive choice on offer.  They wanted our perspective on the difficulty level, and how much the route would appeal to travellers in terms of what we saw along the way.  We were happy to oblige!  The plan was to set out on motorbikes, Lucia and I as passengers with each of our guides, along challenging, undulating dirt tracks that would ascend high into the mountains around Ba Be National Park.

Within a day or two of walking around Ba Be National Park, I developed a new hobby - butterfly spotting!  The park is teeming with hundreds of different species of butterfly (up to 350 according to the guides), and they are all stunningly beautiful creatures.
