The Sao Ha village is located at an altitude of about 2,000m above sea level, it is humbly nestled next to a high mountain. Sao Ha Ancient Village is inhabited by the H'Mong ethnic group. To get to the village, you will have to go through ancient forests, shrouded in mystery all year round. Near the village is an extremely unique bamboo forest scene.

Coming here, you can see the typical architecture of the H'Mong people on the rocky plateau. These are sturdy and neatly arranged stone fences to keep out wild animals.
