Sapa, Lao Cai

Located in the northwest at an altitude of 1,600 m above sea level, Sapa is one place where beautiful snow and ice appear most frequently in Vietnam. Arriving in Sa Pa in winter, tourists may watch snow in many areas around the town as Cong Troi (Sun Gate), Thac Bac (Silver waterfall)  Hoang Lien Son mountain, O Quy Ho Pass.

For “hunting” snow in Sa Pa, travelers should come there in period from December to February when it is extremely drizzle and chilly. In this time, Sapa looks magical, magnificent as European fairy village. Tourist can admire the mountains covered with white snow sparkling under the sun, snow cover thickly on the trees, beside a stream, lake side,... Particularly in the town, we can enjoy the beautiful snow in some destination such as Stone churches, gardens, Sapa Center Lakeside, and Ham Rong mountain – from here you can watch panoramic view of Sapa submerged in falling white snow.
