Sapa is a small market town that has become notable for serving as the gathering point for a diverse collection of hill-tribe groups for more than 200 years. The Hmong, Dao, and other ethnic minorities regularly come here to conduct trade and socialize, and the scenery of the Sapa region in large part reflects the relationship between the minority people and nature. On a clear day, the imposing peak of Fan Si Pan comes into view. The last major peak in the Himalayan chain, Fan Si Pan offers a real challenge to even the keenest walker, the opportunity of staggering views, and a rare glimpse of some of the last remaining primary rain forest in Vietnam.
