SA PA

The best time to witness the scenic beauty of Sapa is in April and May. The area is blooming with flowers and green pastures. The clouds that settle in the valley early in the morning quickly disappear into the mountain tops.

Located at 1,500m above the sea level, Sapa lies on the side of the Hoang Lien Son Mountains, 333km north west of Hanoi.

Sapa's vegetation is diversified, ranging from flowers to fruits, among the most popular are apples, pears, peaches and plums. Sapa has countless natural sites to visit such as Thac Bac, Thuy Cung grotto, Gio cave, Troi gate and Truc forest.

Sapa is also the starting point for many climbers looking to reach the top of Fansipan mountain, the highest on the Indochinese Peninsula at 3,143m. The pyramid-shaped peak is covered with clouds all year round and temperatures often drop below zero at high elevations.

To reach Sapa, one can take a train to Lao Cai and from there hop on a bus to Sapa. On Sundays, Nung, Dao, Tay, Cao Lan, Paxi and Xa Phong minorities make the trip to the foot of Fansipan to take part in the Sunday market.
