Sapa Valley located North of Lao Cai and just before the border of China, in the Tonkinese Alps. Sapa Town is the most famous place of the region and is where the local hill tribes bring their products amongst which are embroidery and knitwear to sell at the local market. Sapa also has spectacular views of the famous rice terraces and its quaint little church offering incredible photographs. Sapa Valley is also home to Vietnam’s highest mountain, the Fan Si Pan Mountain 3143m above sea level is an impressive sight to all and easy to see why it is called the Rooftop of Indochina. Here you will also find Hoang Lien National Park, home to some of Vietnam’s rarest species of animals such as the spike frog only found here, also its flora system is very perse and is home to some flowers and trees only found in this region due to its unique climate. Also located on the valley are some of the smaller remote villages such as Sin Chai, Seo Mi Ty, Ta Trung Ho, Thanh Phu and Ban Ho, here you will find the ethnic hill tribes such as the black Hmong and Red Dao tribes. The local life here hasn't changed much and you will be able and invited to watch how they make the produce before carrying it to market.
