Content 15/09/2023 11

Lao Cai - a northern border province, has long been known as a place blessed with many beautiful landscapes. So what does Lao Cai have? Let's explore Lao Cai with HoaBinh Tourist through this article.

Sapa - Foggy town

Sapa is a town in Lao Cai. This place is blessed by nature with a harmonious climate all year round and wonderful scenery in all four seasons. Today, thanks to human hand weaving, Sapa is less quiet and humble and begins to reveal its potential beauty, hidden for many years with the sharpness and harmony of nature and man-made.

It is the beauty of mountains and hills mixed with high resorts; it is highland markets combined with attractive eco-tourism. However, Sapa has not lost its quality and still retains some of the beauty given to it by nature.

In March and April, the hustle and bustle of life makes people earn a living by growing rice on the high slopes of the valley. Combined with lush green rice fields are valleys of blooming flowers, welcoming the beautiful spring. The weather is somewhat cool but not cold.

Autumn - the season of ripe rice in Sapa. Indeed, if you go to Sapa in this season, it is the most beautiful because the natural scenery is impeccable, with the yellow color of the rice fields stretching far away, mixed with the green color of the mountains and forests, creating a picture of ancient landscapes nay-rare. You can leisurely walk down to each village and hamlet and "penetrate" the activities with the people in Ta Phin village - the village with the most terraced fields in Sapa.

Winter is also a season not to be missed when coming to Sapa. The weather at this time is very cold, but that atmosphere gives Sapa its own unique character. The low temperature causes snowfall here - rare in Vietnam - and sometimes ice freezes into attractive shapes.

Places you can go to when coming to Sapa are: Cat Cat village, Sapa Love market, O Quy Ho pass, May bridge, Co Da beach, Silver waterfall, Heaven's Gate, Stone Church...

Ham Rong mountain

Ham Rong Mountain is unique because of its grandeur and majesty, just like its name. This is a quite special mountain and one of the most attractive destinations in Sapa - Lao Cai.

Surrounded by the Hoang Lien Son mountain range, the name Ham Rong is an interesting symbol and comparison of the people here about the wonderful figurative beauty of this place: strong, sturdy like "dragon's jaws".

Heaven's Gate

This is exactly a place to "capture the view of countless mountains and rivers" of the entire Northwest sea and sky. Heaven's Gate is attractive because of its simplicity and wildness, but it is no less majestic.

Getting here is also a challenging journey with many sharp turns and winding mountain roads. Like many other peaks, Heaven's Gate is difficult because the road up is a deep abyss on one side and winding hills and mountains on the other.

But when you get to the place and witness its beauty, all difficulties seem to disappear; only relaxation and peace, like setting foot in a fairyland, remain forever.

Bac waterfall

The first impression when arriving at Bac Waterfall may be the roaring sound of the waterfall from afar, but it does not make you feel scared but rather excited by the cool steam and pure and fresh air.

Once there, not to disappoint you, Bac Waterfall appears with grandeur but also surprising gentleness and delicacy. You will have a feeling of relaxation, suddenly forgetting winter - summer, time - space to enjoy the green space between the Northwest mountains and hills.

Conquer Fansipan Peak - Roof of Indochina

Fansipan is known as the roof of Indochina, possessing an altitude of more than 3,100 meters above sea level, the center of the majestic Hoang Lien Son mountain range.

This is a suitable place for those who love exploring travel and want to experience trekking up a mountain over 3000m high. If you don't have enough strength and don't have time to stay long, there is a cable car to reach the top. It was also an equally interesting experience.

Bombardment of markets

Can Cau market

The market is one of the most special markets of the Giay and Mong Hoa people in Si-Ma-Cai commune. The market only opens on Saturdays every week and is a place to exchange and buy agricultural products, brocade, livestock, and products from the mountains and forests that people harvest and exploit.

Muong Hum market

This market is held every Sunday in Bat Xat district. The market is held in a rather small valley and is located next to a cool, clear stream flowing from the high mountains. This is a special market to have fun and find a partner, so everyone wears beautiful clothes to not only shop but also attract the opposite sex and make love.

Bac Ha market

The market is also held on Sundays, but at 2 p.m., the market closes. You can go to Bac Ha Market to see the most authentic footage about the lives of Northwest people.
