Y Linh Ho village
Y Linh Ho village locates about 7 km southwest of Sapa town, on the west side of Muong Hoa River. The village attracts tourists in Vietnam travel by spectacular scenery.
Y Linh Ho village is a small commune composed by a dozen of small hamlets scattering on the very tough mountain terrain with high and steep mountains. There are some hundred inhabitants from the Black H’mong only living in this commune. They built their rudimentary houses on their farmland and mainly cultivate corn and dry rice on the steep hillsides. The only way to get to the commune is on foot from the main road.
This village is home to the Black Mong who wear very dark clothing in blacks and navy dyed with indigo (often seen on the hands of older Mong women).
