To even us seasoned walkers, it was challenging. Not so much in length, but in altitude and gradients, it was a first for two people not always comfortable with heights.

Following what we believe to be buffalo tracks, there were several mishaps. The ground was muddy and slippery at times. For the first few kilometres we shunned the assistance of our new Sherpas (our grand old village girls of senior years), but when the going got tough, we gladly accepted their guidance. What amazes us is that we were climbing/descending steps of about three feet, and at our heights of between 5′ 8″ and 6′, we had much more difficulty than our diminutive lady assistants.The weather improved dramatically as we walked and very soon we were walking through a magnificent mountain chain.

Contrary to some published Vietnam travel guides, there is an abundance of shops in Sa Pa selling Hiking Gear, from fleeces and boots to waterproofs and walking sticks, no need to worry beforehand if you have the right weather gear.

We carried our Sa Pa gear across the whole of Vietnam for a month, not realising we could have saved a lot of bother and money by buying on arrival! Enjoying our evening here, views from our hotel room are to die for. Sun just setting.
