I am currently in Sapa and I've had multiple offers to go and trek with H'Mong ladies to go and see their villages. The weather being quite bad, I am sadly considering a one day trek instead of a 2 day one with homestay. I was told that it's illegal to trek with H'Mong since they are not licensed. Is this true? If not, what to expect during such a trek? Also, how much shall I pay if I decide to go with them? They seem really friendly, and as I am willling to get off the beaten track, I imagine this could be one experience of a kind.
THanks for your advice
