High in the mountains of Northern Vietnam near the Chinese border lies the town of Sapa, established as a hill town by the French. I took an overnight train from Hanoi to Lao Cai and just after an hour spent in a minivan, I made it there. If you’re keen to see some amazing landscapes, dramatic scenery and breathtaking cascading rice terraces, you made it to the right place. The hike to the Muong Hoa valley with its´villages inhabited by Vietnamese ethnic tribes was for sure one of the best hikes I’ve ever gone to. I had seen rice terraces before, but this time I made it during harvesting. I couldn’t be more lucky. Let’s take a look.
Thanks for stopping by!
