The green mountainous terrain of Sapa is a must see in VietnamDas grüne gebirgige Terrain von Sapa ist ein Muss in Vietnam
Who ever loves mountainous terrain and green landscapes will absolutely enjoy the region around Sapa, in the North of Vietnam. Let me take you on a hike trough the landscape, along green rice fields and bamboo forests, villages, accompanied by local villagers and their traditional dresses. Each village, each tribe has a different dress.Wer gebirgiges Terrain und grüne Landschaften liebt, wird die Region um Sapa im Norden von Vietnam genießen.

It was impossible not to buy an armlace from the young kid, as my wife looked at me in that moment, just like this girl did.

Es war unmöglich von diesem Mädchen nichts zu kaufen, denn meine Frau schaute mich in diesem Moment genauso an, wie das junge Mädchen es eben tat.

Nice pictures and post. The first picture is excellent, I love the composure of the photo!

·

It is always tricky with a GoPro to get decents shots. Thanks! I send my regards to you to London.

·
·

Wow, I didn't realise that GoPros were so good. Impressive.

wonderful photos, thank you :)

·

.. and I have to thank you for visting this blog ;)

·
·

It was totally my pleasure, your photos are fabulous :)

Hermoso lugar, y supongo que una experiencia inolvidable, así lo transmitiste!!! Saludos desde Venezuela!!

Lovely photos and interesting Hmong culture. Try and hike the magnificent peaks of Ta xua in Son La and Lao cai all in the north of Vietnam.

·

Those are marvellous advices @moses.vagrant! We might be over again soon.

Beautiful pictures! Keep Steeming!

·

Cool, thanks for viewing my content @firepower. I really appreciate it.

I love mountainous terrains but I haven't gotten around to visiting one. I hope I will visit one someday.
Btw, you have a beautiful collection of amazing pictures. Beautiful scenes with beautiful people. Thanks for taking us along your adventure virtually. lol

·

What for a great and kind feedback. Really overwhelming :) - thank you @globalfoodbook

·
·

It is my pleasure. Cheers

Very beautiful pictures! Was there a special meaning to the rock statue in the first one? Also do you have a picture of the armlace you got and does that stand for something? Does it has a reason why they wear it or just some sort of a fashion thing?

·

Great feedback and lovely that you show such an interest. I do have a photo of the armlace, which I wore for the rest of the trip :). Their clothes and accessories are their way of showing their background, to show their tribe and they are knitting it themselves (hence the cannabis plants). But of course, and unfortunately, it is also very commercialised. Some of the Hmong tribes arounds Sapa misuse the tourism by refusing sending their children to school and instead turn them into vendors and beggers in the touristic areas of Sapa.

Regarding the rock. There is surely a story behind it, but unfortunately it wasn't mentioned by our hike guide or if, I might have forgotten.

·
·

Thanks for the info and the picture! Sorry if I ask too many questions but find this really interesting and don't really get to travel myself so... :)

I guess it's understandable that if that is what brings them an income, that they focus on that. It's indeed sad though. Stories like this always remind me to be grateful for the comfort I have and the priviledged situation I live in....

Toller Post - die Bilder erinnern mich an meine Balireise!

Dein Name ist toll - warst du schon mal auf Island und hast die Puffins in echt gesehen??

Upvote und follow :)

·

Danke, ja mich erinnerte vor Ort die Reisfelderkulisse ebenfalls an Bali. Nein, nicht in Island .. aber in Irland :D (eine super schöne Erinnerung). Vielen Dank für deinen tollen Kommentar - btw dein Name klingt auch cool.

Awesome photos! Followed you

·

That is something one likes to read! Cheers @drewley!

Absolutely gorgeous!!! I'm from Louisiana so it is mostly flat here. I just married a Filipina and she does not understand my fascination with mountain landscapes. Especially since she grew up in the mountains :P

Also, thanks for the challenge list. I was just checking each day to see what others were posting :)

·

I was the very same regarding the challenges.

Me to. I'm from Berlin also far away from the mountain landscapes in the south of Germany, so I do always enjoy them when I travel.

Tolle Bilder und klarer upvote :-)

·

·

Ahh, heard of them .. I need to see those one day!

Very nice Green.
Thank you for the translation to English.

This is the second colorchallenge post I have seen today that makes me wonder how I can improve my colorchallenge post.

·

Main thing is you are enjoying doing these colorchallenges posts. Thanks for your comment deanlogic!

Looks a great place.. I bet the air is thin up there.. Great pictures

·

:) Yes, but for me it was heat that made the hike very strenuous

·
·

it doesn't look hot.. Which just shows how deceiving it can be :)

·
·
·

Yes, the umbrella you can see in one some of the pictures only carried the purpose to protect from the sun ;)

This is great! Lovely pictures, thanks for sharing :) I have taken part in this challenge as well!

I've always wanted to go to Vietnam, and when I do, I'm sure I'll be doing this! :D

·

It is worth it. Thanks for visiting my blog ;)

Wow looks like an amazing adventure! Steem on!

·

It was a great adventure, unfortunetly I had a scooter accident soon after .. so that was the last long hike of our trip. Stil an awesome trip.

Kudos to the locals who maintains the place.

·

I have to agree on that ;). Hard working ones, I cannot imagine how hard it is to work on the fields in that heat.

Looks like an awesome trip, btw what did you use to get those low angle shots?

·

I was lying on the ground ;). No, these shots were taken with a GoPro with a stick ;).

·
·
·
·
·

I didn't expect them to turn out that nice. Was a nice surprise to see the results.

Absolutely stunning photos. Look at all those rice fields and those beautiful herbs. Thank you for sharing...

·

It was a stunning trip alright ;)

I like the view of the mountains. I would like to visit them in person

·

It is worth a visit ;)

·
·

I can see from the photos. I'm an adventurous person and I feel the adventure's adrenaline welling up in me now

·
·
·

Great response :). Sounds like you will soon pack your bag and head for a new adventure ;) .. do it and enjoy it ;)

·
·
·
·

Thanks laurenkavanagh for your kind feedback. Yes, that sounds great. I love travel stories. I will check your blog.

I loved the photo of cannabis plan (I love this plant). I did not know that we could grow it in Vietnam. Really cool your little report. enjoy
