Things to do in Lao Cai

Make the most of the fresh mountain air on a bicycle tour through Muong Hoa Valley, set in the heart of Sapa, which reveals rice terraces and lush rainforest. Admire the mysteriously engraved stones and stop by Lao Chai Village for a glimpse into the lives of the local H’mong people.

Visit Hoang Lien National Park and hike to Silver Waterfalls to see a series of cascading streams flowing down from Lo Sui Tong mountain. Travel along Heaven’s Gate, the highest stretch of road in Vietnam, where you can relish the park’s superb mountain scenery from above.

Take the Sun World Fansipan Legend cable car to Fansipan Mountain, the highest peak in Indochina. At 3,143 metres high, the views from the summit encompass the entire Muong Hoa Valley and Hoang Lien Mountain range. If you’re looking for a physical challenge, immerse yourself amongst nature on a three-day hike to the summit.

Find locally handcrafted souvenirs at Bac Ha Market, held every Sunday by the local tribe's people. Arrive early to experience the lively atmosphere of locals bartering, buying and selling and see exotically dressed H’mong people.
