Sapa ethnic and rice terrace field

- Code: MN-07
- Duration: 2 days- 3 nights
- Departure: Ha Noi

Tucked high in Vietnam's remote northern mountains and close to the Chinese border, the former French military outpost of Sapa offers some of Vietnam's most joyful experiences. Sapa is the owner of the 3,143m tall Mount Fansipan - Vietnam's highest peak. The views are breath taking while the surrounding valleys feature terraced rice paddies and blazing green fields cut by fast-flowing streams. Layer upon layer of green ridges fade into the distance, edged by sharp and rocky peaks. The region is home to several ethnic minority groups who all wear their traditional and colorful attire.
