On the return leg of our walk through the hills around Bac Ha, our guide became slightly lost. Perhaps this had to do with the excellent corn wine which we sampled in one of the small villages, as he looked very flushed and stumbled a few times despite only drinking a small cup. The 'scenic route' home was indeed very pretty, and led us past these buffalo who backed away in fright, obviously never having encountered a bunch of tourists before. We also walked through some of the orchards for which this area is famed, but as it was nearly dark by then I didn't take any pictures.
