About This Center

Sky Horse Valley is a vibrant and transformational artists community where you will connect intimately with nature, explore your soul, strengthen your body and expand your mind. At the center of the community is the founder, Dau Anh Khanh, one of Vietnam’s most prolific artists. Mr Khanh started the project in order to create his art and share it with the world - environmental art, exceptional architecture, performance art, painting, and more. Sky Horse Valley has been born from Khanh’s dream to create a self-sustainable community of spirited individuals who are artistic by nature.

This space offers you the opportunity to unplug from the stresses and distractions of our everyday lives in order to live simply and mindfully, in harmony with nature, while contributing your creativity, energy and passions to help make our community a beautiful and nurturing place for people from all backgrounds and walks of life. Sky Horse Valley hopes to inspire transformational change in the lives of those who stay here by encouraging them to intimately explore their bodies, minds and spirits. In order to help guide our guests and volunteers on this journey, we strive to offer a variety of retreats, events, workshops and activities. The variety of opportunities you will find here include: performing arts, painting, drawing and sculpting, healing arts, massage, yoga, meditation, tantra, martial arts, outdoor education, natural building, permaculture practices, cooking classes, shampoo and soap making, and much more.

Venue Highlights

Our center is located on 10 hectares of beautiful jungle in Hoa Binh (60 km from Hanoi). Surrounded by stunning landscapes, running streams and waterfalls, this oasis is the perfect escape for anyone looking to take a break from the chaos of the modern world. The landscape itself is dotted with whimsical art installations created by the incredible Dao Anh Khanh, and walking through the land feels like a fairy tale, where you never know what you may find around the next corner. It is a place that exemplifies harmony between nature, art and love, and serves as the perfect environment for our guests to explore their creativity, strengthen their bodies and broaden their minds. The valley itself is within walking distance of Lam Son, a small town that offers several local coffee shops, restaurants, shops and a daily market for guests to explore, connect with locals and get a feel for the daily pace of life in Vietnam.
