Day 2 in Sapa ended with a little disappointment when the weather was unpromising in Fransipan which was unfortunate for us. Never the less, we still had fun as we refuse to allow the weather to dampen our spirit.
Time passes quickly when you are on holiday. How true that statement was…. It is already Day 3 and our final day in Sapa…..
Day 3 started with morning exploration of Muong Hoa Valley, one of the most famous destination for breathtaking scenery on the largest farmland for rice growing in Sapa.
Muong Hoa Valley, is located about 14 kilometers from the town of Sapa. To get there, one can trek along Muong Hoa river sneaking through the valley which lies between two high ranges of mountains. A great place to learn about rice cultivating.
Our exploration started with an easy walk downhill along Muong Hoa River. Although the weather was a little disappointing, as we head downhill, we are able to slowly see clearer the terraced fields. The view were awesome even in our gloomy weather. So one can imagine when it is green and sunny…. definitely need to plan to return for another exploration in a different season!
Our first stop was in a local school. The school was build by volunteers and are running on donations. It was wonderful to see those children running around happily without any care in the world.
We head further down the valley passing hamlets of the H’Mong people while seeing their daily routines.
Indeed a truly trilling experience that is also education, we completed the trekking after 1.5 hours of trekking before we head into our next trekking adventure of Ta Van Village, a unique village in SaPa area where Giay minority live.
Our memorable holiday to Vietnam is arranged by the friendly and helpful team at Hanoi Boutique Hotel
