Why Sapa is perfect for a memorable trekking experience

You know, there’s no second place in Vietnam that you can find such amazingly beautiful and unique landscapes like Sapa. This destination is absolutely a perfect place for trekking lovers, who like to enjoy a slow, meaningful and full of surprise life.


Surrounded by breathtaking vistas, rolling peaks and stunning greenery, who can imagine that this primitive place can keep its natural beauty, even it used to be one of the most favorite destinations of French while they were taking control of Vietnam (beside Halong Bay and Hanoi).

And since then Sapa’s beautiful landscapes have become a number-1 choice for holiday-makers, particularly with Europeans looking for an escape from hustle life by taking a trekking tour.

Sapa’s beautiful landscape

You can find one of the most popular mountain ranges of Southeast Asia, the Hoang Lien Son, which is always a major part of the destination's appeal to visitors. The range, which is the largest in Vietnam, and especially in Sapa, that has Fan Si Pan, the highest peak of Southeast Asia, which is also called “The roof of Southeast Asia”.

However, Sapa’s popularity is not only made from the monstrously huge mountains, but the eye-catching rice terraces and fields that sit below are also a wonder to contemplate.

These rolling terraces are the perfect products of locals' creation, which are used to make growing rice more effective thanks to their steep standing which, in turn with granite erosion, has yielded fertile soil and the perfect conditions for produce growth. The terraces also offer something different as the year goes on, with a glowing gold colour emanating from the ripe rice crops in the autumn, a rich green flowing out in the summer months and a deep red filling the fields through the winter. So every moment in a year will just be perfect for a Sapa tour.

Beside stunning golden terrace fields, amazingly imposing Fansipan peak, Sapa is also very famous for its mystery. Because the views of Sapa can occasionally be obscured by fog and mist which descends into the area and clouds the mountainous peaks, but the natural beauty continues to shine through.

There’s no way your memory card can be empty once you come to Sapa for a trekking trip. There are so many places in this town that can make you take your camera out immediately and catch the moment. For example, you can follow the Muong Hoa valley dirt trails, up past the hills of the Red Zoa and even into the midst of Den Thang Village H'mong's thick bamboo rain forests. You can then trek through Ban Ho, taking in the many waterfalls that line the region. This scenic trail presents not only a challenge for trekkers but also photo opportunities and gasp-inducing views at pretty much every turn.


And as well as Sapa’s unique vegetational cover, trekkers will also be able to contemplate plenty of wildlife during their trip here. There are many forms of wildlife and bird found within the Sapa mountains that are native purely to this part of Vietnam, so these will not be seen elsewhere, with birds, frogs and monkeys among the Sapa inhabitants.

But the trekking experience won’t be complete if you miss out Sapa's villages. There, you will find eye-opening insights into day-to-day Vietnamese life.


Well, anyone who is planning on a trekking trip in Sapa will want to know what to expect in terms of the city's climate, right! Sapa has a changeable, sub topical climate, with heavy rainfall likely during May, June, July, August and September. Rainfall is at its lowest in December, January and February, with high temperatures throughout the year. These peak during the rain season, with the mercury topping 80 degrees F in September. Average highs during the dry season are more likely to level out at around 50 degrees F.

If these reasons are still not enough to make you want to take a trip to Sapa, then you can find more about Sapa's attractiveness, in a good article about this amazing destination.
