We have been in SaPa for the last three days, trekking through the mountians.
It's been amazing. The views have been spectacular! To get there we took an over night train from Ha Noi to Lao Cia, ariving at 5:30am. It was hard to wake up that early, but we were all really excited. After a quick breakfast we began our trek followed by local 'sale-ladies'. We had lunch every day at small 'reststops' where our local guide cooked for us. Over the two day we walked about 30km, most of which was steep up hill or very steep downhill! We were lucky enought to have sun for the first time of the trip! Which was awesome because we were in the coldest part of the trip (we still need our thermals for bedtime though!). We stayed in two villiages with local families (the first homestay, we had AMAZING food).
The trek was fantastic! We ALL enjoyed it... David says hi... THE END!
