Sapa is a picturesque town near the border of China in Vietnam's remote northwest mountains. It's unlikely to be the most heard tourist spot, but it has the finest, rugged scenery and rich cultural diversity. 15 kilometers away from the town, you can reach the Silver Waterfall, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in this country. Lying beside National Highway NO.4D, the waterfall has a height of 100 meters and pours down as a giant white dragon descends from the sky. It is formed by sources of water from the Lo Sui Tong mountain peak, roaring and producing white foam to offer a stunning view over surrounding mountains and lush forests. Visitors may climb up to the top of the waterfall to enjoy the greater sight, which invokes a certain feeling of romance. Bring along wide-angled cameras for the mountains, and you won't regret it.
In some short distance is the Heaven Gate, a charming mountain that will take your breath away. Dense forests like fantastic natural paintings, the crooked paths leading ahead, in here you’ll notice the difference they make between the two provinces of Lao Cai and Lai Chau. Fill your lungs with pleasantly fresh air and relax under the shade of trees. Your worries seem all go with the flow of the waterfall beyond. Travelers also find it worthwhile to visit Cat Cat Village and the Sapa Church in the area. If you're feeling adventurous, our 15-Day In-Depth Vietnam Tour with Sapa will take you on a half-day tour to the two tourist spots shown above.
