A mystical, mist-shrouded hill-town experience awaits just 230 miles (376 km) northwest of busy Hanoi. Established in 1922 as a holiday escape by French colonists, charming, mile-high Sapa lies at the heart of mountainous adventure.
Sapa Town remains a comfortable retreat, with cozy accommodations and street side restaurants serving up local cuisine. The market is a highlight, where the region’s colorfully dressed ethnic hill tribes gather to trade and socialize.
Clouds often shroud the town, creating a magical, mystical feel. But when they clear, Sapa’s peaceful alpine setting astounds. Verdant mountain peaks tower high above a deep valley filled with cascading rice terraces.
As tempting as it is to stay in town, remember you’re in northern Vietnam’s foremost trekking hub. Dozens of spectacular trails await, leading through sweeping landscapes of tiny hill-tribe villages, tumbling rice terraces, and towering peaks. Hike to the top of Fansipan, a multi-day adventure up the “Roof of Indochina.” Or amble along one of the shorter trails, each one offering its own take on breathtaking views. You can also stay with a hill-tribe family to learn about a different way of life. Wherever you go, you’ll breathe fresh mountain air, experience new cultures, and create a lifetime of memories.
