    Su Pan Village

    August 25, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌧 24 °C

    We continued walking into the next village all the scenery is very similar but this village specialises in Homestay and it very touristy which is a shame.

    Next to Muong Hoa River, Su Pan is a very mountainous community. Being a part of the highland on the east side of the main road, it is about 17 km from Sapa. Su Pan has 4 small hamlets and is home of the Black H’mong and Red Zao. This village looking down to the Muong Hoa Valley is one of the poorest communities in Sapa due to the thin and poor soil making it hard to cultivate rice. This is one of the reasons the village turned to Tourism.Read more

    Day 5 Sa Pa

    October 6, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    And it was shaky and bumpy the whole night. We arrived in Lao Cai when the sun was almost rising. A transfer bus brought us to Sapa. We got breakfast at the company of our 2-day-trek we have booked. Then our guide Chi showed up and explained us what was going to happen. We started the hike in the city and then it went steep up the hills. We overtook several other groups and had a very good pace so that even Chi came into a hussle. She is doing these treks since 2009 almost every day. The weather was quite foggy in the morning, but got better later. After reaching the highest point we climbed down through lots of rice terraces and different areas of the valley. This was the most interesting part as it was beautiful and challenging at the same time. We were walking on the ridge - actually on the rigde of rice terraces. Sometimes it was not easy to find a dry way or not to fall from stones. Additonally we saw some animals like buffalos, pigs and ducks. In the afternoon we arrived in the small village where Chi lives with her family. We got French fries as snack and we were wondering if we get more food or not for quite a long time. Eventually her husband brought tons of food on the table. We could eat great food until we were almost exploding. Later we washed the dishes and slept.Read more
