Nguyen The Luong

From Bac Waterfall, tourists can admire a splendid view of a valley at the foot of Hoang Lien Son Mountain Range

Those who long for a place without earsplitting noises and with a tranquil space and poetic landscapes to escape the sultry atmosphere and stuffy city life and experience a slow pace of life are advised to visit Bac (Silver) Waterfall, one of the must-see destinations in Sapa Town in the northern upland province of Lao Cai.

From the center of the town, tourists can take a motorbike drive on a 12km journey to get to Bac Waterfall to admire poetic landscapes on either side of the street.

Upon arrival at the waterfall, travelers can enjoy a pleasant weather which helps refresh their minds and souls and admire the immense green of mountain ranges and the endless glistening yellowish color of terraced rice fields. The waterfall is a harmonious combination of nature and life that wait to be discovered.

Tourists will have the chance to release all of their worries and burdens to explore this romantic land with sounds and melodies of mountains and streams running through and birds singing away in the jungle.

The sightseeing spot is home to a large community of ethnic minorities such as Mong, Dao and Giay whose cultures and lifestyles are charming for visitors to learn about. Many local residents would gather at the foot of the waterfall to open a small flea market to sell their specialties for tourists.

Therefore, visitors to Thac Bac can buy some unique products such as bamboo shoots, chayote, honeybee, and especially hand-made brocade products.

In addition, tourists can also enjoy corn wine and grilled dishes such as grilled pork, grilled eggs and grilled corn.

Local ethnic people in the area are known for their great hospitality with warm handshakes and big smiles on their faces towards tourists.

Visiting Bac Waterfall could be an unforgettable trip to a wonderland where people can easily find a slow tempo of life without pollution and noise.
