For the adventurous types Sapa is the starting point for treks to the top of Mt. Fansipan, at 10,312 feet the highest peak in Vietnam (and the entire Indochina Peninsula).

Trekking is the main reason to come to Sapa.
Flight from London
GMT +7 hrs
There are treks to suit all levels of fitness and enthusiasm, and all are accompanied by excellent English-speaking guides chosen specifically by Original Travel.
The trails take in a diverse range of landscapes, as well as some of the hill tribe villages, where life continues relatively untouched by the modern world. At lower altitudes, the trails lead through rice paddies and orchards, at higher altitudes through bamboo forest and pine trees.
