  • It was easy to buy the ticket and they explained what they were for. Took a train from the middle of Sapa to where the Gondola is. Unfortunately when you get off the train they guide you to walk up.....  more »
  • The view of the surrounding valley is already nice at this point. There are some shops for hikers to eat before starting the hike.  more »
  • Picturesque mountain scenery, green valleys, quaint traditional tribal villages inhabited by the ethnic minorities, bamboo forests, rice terraces and breathtaking views. The best view of Sapa can be had from the Tram Ton Pass or Heaven’s Gate, the highest mountain pass in Vietnam. Also in the area is the Bac (silver) Water fall, if you have the energy continue up the Fanispan Mountain for a truly magnificent view
