Trekking in Sa Pa

The Sa Pa region is well known for its trekking routes. The walks through the rice-terraced-hills and villages offer beautiful views as well as an insight into local family life, with the help of a knowledgeable and helpful guide.

I'm happy to see all the pictures here. They do remind me of good memory of Sa pa in April 2018. You were lucky. It was all cloudy and foggy as I was staying in Sapa as you can find from my photoblog.

We were lucky indeed - we were staying there for 3 nights and on the day we did the trekking the weather was good to us. Before and after, and even on the other day we were staying there, it was less fortunate.
