Experience in the Tea mountains of hill tribes in Ha Giang

Ha Giang is considered as homeland of Snow Shan tea where the tea plant has its origins. In here, there are still many mountains where tea grows "wild" and is harvested by the local people. Ancient organic Shan tea mountains in Ha Giang are owned by the Red Yao, Tay, H'mong tribes. These tribes live in small and peaceful villages in the upper mountains; harvest and produce their precious tea from generation to generation. 

The ancient Shan tea trees in Ha Giang have been recognized as national heritage trees, we focus on education, responsible tourism and local indigenous knowledge conversation. Aim to: 

-Improving the capacity for farmers in ancient Snow Shan tea villages by introducing livelihood models base their indigenous knowledge, include tea, develop these diversified livelihoods models 

-Enhance knowledge on the role of ancient Snow Shan tea trees for the income and food security of hill tribes, reduces poverty and increases resilience to the expected impact of climate change. 

-Focusing on building entrepreneurial capacities of local youth to exploit business opportunities in relationship between tea and tourism, empowering them to start up local businesses and work off their own skill sets. 

We are happy to welcome volunteers who are willing to bring extensive experience to our program with an independent and altruistic approach that guarantees effective and authentic skills transfer and mentoring.

Our tea house located at the gate of ancient Shan tea village, it is a colorful village with beautiful natural scenery at the foot of Tay Con Linh mountain (known as the roof of Northeast Vietnam). Here you can find many unique traditional cultural values of the Red Yao people. The ancestral tea trees have been recognised as heritage trees of Vietnam, their past woven into the tribe’s equally rich history of customs and traditions for thousands of years.
