Northern Vietnamese Mountain Landscapes | Sapa
The scenery around Sa Pa (or Sapa) in Vietnam really reflects the minority tribes that live in the small mountain villages that are scattered around. Terraced rice fields, small huts and handmade foot bridges are scattered everywhere and make the place incredibly photogenic .I spent my time trekking from village to village although it took much more time to than I thought as I kept having to stop for shots like this. I ended up arriving at the point where I had arranged to meet my driver much later than planned but thankfully he was good enough to wait for me. I would have been stuck in the middle of nowhere if he had decided to leave.
SaPa is located in the far North West of Vietnam and very close to the borders of China. It is at the very far end of the Himalayas and it is this that has helped shape the beautiful scenery. Life here is as completely removed from anything I have ever seen before and it is less than 20 years since the area was open to tourists which makes it an amazing place to visit.
