My favourite trek in Vietnam

Sapa, Vietnam

At China’s door step, 2000m above sea level in northwest Vietnam lies the quiet mountain town of Sapa. Surrounded by spectacular scenery of mountains shrouded in mist and sloping rice terraces cascading down the hillside, Sapa is also home to a great diversity of ethnic minority groups. Now a popular spot for treks, these excursions can vary from reasonably easy one day hikes to harder multi-day treks with overnight homestays in the villages surrounding Sapa. Whether it is a clear day enabling amazing views of the valleys below, or a crisp misty day amongst the trees in the clouds, the beauty and rich culture of this corner of Vietnam is a special experience.
