A passage crossing a gentle incline takes travelers into a small road, that is Muong Hum. Muong Hum of the past was a quiet and rather gloomy place. Only on market days was the place awakened by human and horses sounds and coloured by the costumes worn by people coming down from mountains and around. Today, Huong Hum is much more bustling. The Muong Hum market convenes on Sundays. This is a rendez-vous, a place for people to meet and communicate with one another. Lunch at local restaurant.
