A fancy Sapa in fog

Located on the height of 1,500m at the flank of Lo Suay Tong Mount, Sapa is cool all year round with stretching mountains, far away is pretty Muong Hoa valley.

I visited Sapa on the 5th January to the lunar year, the temperature was only 6 Celsius and Sapa was covered with fog. It was so interesting to see the children played in fog, the daily activities of the ethnic girls and the daily life of the local people. All of them had made a beautiful picture of Sapa.

The ancient church is located in the center of Sapa which was built by French in early 20th century. Most of tourists come to Sapa visit this church as the symbol of Sapa.

With the lowest point is far from Sapa 1,400m, the highest point is far from Sapa 1,800m, Ham Rong Mount is in Hoang Lien Son Alps and it is covered with fog all year round.

Rumor has it that, long time ago, at this place, every creature lived chaotically in mud. One day, the Jade Emperor declared every creature had to find the place for itself. All of them complied with the declaration immediately except for 3 dragon brothers.

The three brothers flied to the West where there were vacancies. The elder brothers were healthy and flied to the West. The youngest one was not as heathy as his brothers so he got lost in tigers, lions, bears… who were fighting for the residence. The youngest dragon was so scared that he was opening his mouth to self-defend. At that time, the during of the declaration run out of time and every creature who hadn’t found his residence yet would turn into rock, including three dragon brothers.

In the evening in Sapa, the temperature gets lower but it is crowded time. Everyone goes to grilled stalls to enjoy grilled food, specialties of Sapa: grilled pork, grilled sweet potato, pork “held in hand”, grilled vegetable and especially wild apple wine.
