Major Classic Destinatinons : Bao Lac - VietNam

Bao Lac district is located in the far north Cao Bang province of Vietnam. Close to the border with China, this mountainous area is home to 50,000 inhabitants who live mainly in small villages in remote areas without water supply and even electricity. This is the poorest region in Vietnam.

This is home to nearly 1000 black Lolos only. They live together in traditional stilt houses set in big green valleys. Their homes also have living space for cattle and poultry, mainly water buffalo, cows, pigs, ducks, chickens, dogs and cats.

Lolo people are skilled at making bronze drum, a treasure of each family only used in funerals. These bronze drums are buried and guarded by the head of the family line. Each Lolo family line has several highly interconnected branches, usually living in the same hamlet. The head of a branch position is always held by a man. He is responsible for the worship of ancestors and maintaining solidarity between its members.
