The two day trek is extremely enjoyful and providing you are reasonable fit it is not too taxing. Most tourists take a guide and these can easily be found at the Auberge Hotel, Mountain View Hotel and Friendly Cafe. You'll probably pay about $US10 per day for the guide. Check the price of the home stay as it is usually not included in the fees you pay to the guide. The trek is basically down hill most of the way and it is cheap to get transport back along the main road to Sapa rather than the necessity of walking it. The scenery is breathtaking and you'll meet lots of locals on the way. The road can be rough at times as road works are in progress and take a long time to finish. The mountain donkey was an unexpected treat.
