What people are saying about Sa Pa

This is a fun hiking trip, in the beginning you will need to climb up the mountain a bit. After that it's mostly descending. You will see beautiful sceneries and the guide will inform you about the life of the tribes etc. Which is quite interesting. Make sure to wear good shoes as some parts can get slippery. The tribe women will help you in case of need. They are very lovely. When having lunch they will ask you to buy something, which I think is the least thing you can do for them.

The hike is really very strenuous. The accompaniment of the locals and their help in difficult places was just great. The view from standing in the rice terraces is absolutely worth the effort. It was a sensational experience.

The guides were amazing, we would not have been able to do the hike without them. Highly recommend this tour to see the villages and rice paddies, one of the favorite parts of our trip!

The tour gave us insights that we would not have gotten otherwise! The tour was great fun and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Sapa :)

Nice guide who talked us about her village, her tribe, her culture, traditions... It was incredibly beautiful.
