highlights
  • Enjoy beautiful scenery of the mountainous area in the north of Vietnam
  • Discover the traditional market used by the local people
  • See Hoang Lien Range and Fansipan Mountain - the highest peak in Indochina Peninsula
Bac Ha Market is in Bac Ha District and belongs in Lao Cai Province, 80km from Sapa town and over 1hour by car.

Bac Ha is one of the biggest markets in Sapa and open on Sundays only. It’s not only the trading center but also a place for couples, friends and relatives. In this market, every animal you can imagine is for sale: pigs, dogs, cats and horse.

Sapa has many natural sites such as Ham Rong Mountain, Silver Waterfall, Rattan Bridge, Bamboo Forest and Ta Phin Cave. Sapa is also the starting point for many climbers and scientists who want to reach the top of Fansipan Mountain, the highest mountain in Vietnam at 3,143m.

Hoang Lien Mountain Range is also called the Alps of the North Sea area since Fansipan Mountain is not only the highest peak in Vietnam, but also in the entire Indochina Peninsula. The pyramid-shaped mountain is covered with clouds all year round and temperatures often drop below zero, especially at high elevations.

“This tour leaves Hanoi at 06:30 am, there is no need for a sleeper bus because it is a day trip, they are very uncomfortable (particularly for foreigner size) , the onboard toilet stinks and the bus carry less passengers so is always full. The rest is ok (guides,hotel,food) except that this is not a trekking tour just walking on local roads between villages and shops.”
