Sapa is a mountainous district of Lao Cai province, 380 km northwest of Hanoi, and close to the border with China. The Hoang Lien Son range of mountains dominates the district of Sapa, which is at the eastern extremity of the Himalayas. This range includes Vietnam’s highest mountain, Fansipan mountain, at a height of 3143 m above sea level. The town of Sapa lies at an elevation of about 1500 meters (4,921 feet) elevation. The climate is moderate and rainy in summer (May—August), and foggy and cold with occasional snowfalls in winter.
Sapa is home to a great diversity of ethnic minority peoples including Hmong, Dao, Tay, Giay, Xa Pho. The scenery of the Sapa region in large part reflects the relationship between the minority people and nature. This is seen especially in the paddy fields carpeting the rolling lower slopes of the Hoang Lien Mountains. The impressive physical landscape which underlies this has resulted from the work of the elements over thousands of years, wearing away the underlying rock. On a clear day, the imposing peak of Fansipan comes into view. The last major peak in the Himalayan chain, Fansipan offers a real challenge to even the keenest walker, the opportunity of staggering views, and a rare glimpse of some of the last remaining primary rain forest in Vietnam.
