Trekking in Sa Pa

Sa Pa, Vietnam

First on the agenda was a 3 day trek in Sapa- so we boarded the overnight train form Hanoi which took about 9 pain filled, dirty & hot hours (my tolerance for sleeper trains was fastly deteriorating). But thankfully the Mountain town of Sapa was totally worth it- surrounded by rice fields and greenery as far as the eye could see the scenery was gorgeous.

The trek included a home stay, and because of the lovely bunch of people we where this was great……we were cooked some amazing food, we ate & drank outside overlooking the hills & slept in a huge dorm like room in a huge wooded House on simple mattresses under mosquito nets. It was the best nights sleep whe'd had in ages!!

The local tribeswoman were the only thing that made the trip a bit weird. They were lovely, but there were hoards of them following us around everywhere & asking for us to buy from them literally every 5 minutes, which gets to be very tiring, and annoying, meaning unfortunately you forget just how basic & tough their lives really are.
