Its a very nice and simple hike, from Sapa through the Cat Cat village (visiting a nice waterfall on the way).
If desired, you can continue the same way to Sin Chai village.
Both Cat Cat and Sin Chai villages are black H'Mong villages.
The track is also easy to find, its absolutely not required to have a guide - except to provide you with extra information...
easy - mostly downhill (sometimes steep), with the option to take one of the motorcyle taxis back to town (we payed 25000 dong / person from Sin Chai back to Sapa)
