A French-vietnamese couple, the first to run trekking activity in Vietnam in the early nineties were seduced by the Song Chay massif and local people of Ha Giang province. In 2003 they decided to build a basecamp at the bottom of the Lang Giang valley, in the heart of the massif, below the Tay Con Linh. Red Yao people named the lodge Pan Hou (their legendary dragoon dog ancestor). Inspired by the local architecture, the rooms are built from local materials and furniture were made on place, as well as fabrics. Windows and balconies of the nine villas overlook the landscaped garden and terrace ponds.
