Uoi Village is located at the foot of the mountain and is one of the most beautiful valleys in Pu Luong. From Uoi Village, you can look down and see a picturesque view of winding terraced fields and majestic limestone mountains that resemble Halong Bay’s rocky islands.

Additionally, there is a stream flowing through the terraced fields where tourists can freely enjoy playing and swimming.

During your visit to Uoi Village, you can immerse yourself in the peaceful and serene nature of the village without pollution and modern devices. You can explore the traditional stilt houses, learn about the daily life of the locals, and even talk, drink and make friends with the hospitable villagers.

Next, you will head to Pho Doan Market, a bustling market located in Pu Luong. The market is only open three times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, so it’s important to plan your visit accordingly.

After visiting Pho Doan Market, you will have the option to visit either Hieu Waterfall or Khuyn Waterfall. Hieu Waterfall is a popular attraction in Pu Luong and offers a refreshing dip in the cool water. On the way to Hieu Waterfall, you will stop at Pho Doan Market to learn about the local people selling their agricultural products. Alternatively, Khuyn Waterfall is a hidden gem in the forest that is less well-known to tourists. Upon arrival at Khuyn Waterfall, you will have the opportunity to take a refreshing dip in the cool water while your guide helps you collect wood for a forest BBQ (please note: BBQ is only available for the option 1 day tour or good weather conditions).

Khuyn Waterfall is a hidden gem located in the forest of Pu Luong Nature Reserve in. It is less well-known to tourists than some of the other attractions in the area, which means it offers a more secluded and tranquil experience.

The waterfall itself is a beautiful natural wonder, with cool, clear water cascading down a series of rocks into a pool below. The surrounding forest is lush and green, with tall trees and a variety of plants and wildlife. The area around the waterfall is also a great spot for a forest BBQ, with your guide helping you collect wood for the fire.

One of the unique aspects of visiting Khuyn Waterfall is that it is only accessible by motorbike or on foot, which adds to the sense of adventure and seclusion. The journey to the waterfall takes you through some of the most beautiful and remote areas of Pu Luong, including winding roads through mountain passes and dense forest.
