|Nestled in a valley in the Hoang Lien Son Mountains of Vietnam, close to the Chinese border, Sapa was originally built by the French in 1922 as a hill station retreat from the oppressive summer heat of Hanoi.
Situated at an elevation of 1,650 meters and overlooking Fansipan (Vietnam's highest mountain at 3,143 meters), Sapa has all four seasons in one single day. The weather changes rapidly; in the morning it is bright and sunny and within minutes, clouds appear and the rains begin to fall.
It is where you find the beauty of nature in valleys, mountain, streams, water falls, and the warmly welcome of the ethnic peoples. Come to Sa Pa to enjoy the scenery and explore daily activities of the tribal peoples.
