Sapa located in Lao Cai Province , North-west Vietnam, and 380km north-west of Hanoi, close to the border with China
The scenery of the Sapa region in large part reflects the relation ship between the minority people and nature. This is seen especially in the paddy fields carpeting the rolling lower slopes of the Hoang Lien Mountains. The impressive physical landscape which underlies this has resulted from the work of the elements over thousands of years, wearing away the underlying rock
The Hoang Lien Son range of mountain dominates the district , which is at the eastern extremity of the Himalayas. This range includes Vietnam’s highest mountain, Fansipan at a height of 3143m above sea level. The town of Sapa lies at an altitude of about 1500 meters ( 4921 feet ) above sea level. The climate is moderate and rainy in summer , and foggy and cold with occasional snowfalls in winter
On a clear day, the imposing peak of Fansipan comes into view. The last major peak in the Himalaya chain, Fansipan offers a real challenge to even the keenest walker, the opportunity of staggering views, and a rare glimpse of some of the last remaining primary rain forest in Vietnam
