Be prepared for an extraordinary adventure: Explore the usually closed territory of Sapa, North Vietnam, where only some locals call home. Meander through small dirt roads and narrow trails. Breathe in fresh, crisp air as you witness the splendiferous mountain ranges of Hoang Lien National Park and nearby valleys. Survey rice fields on terrace-clad hills. Cross bamboo bridges. Bypass water buffaloes and mountain pigs. Be spurred on by the cheers of local children.
