Short stage but hard physically, since in less than 30 km we have to climb almost 1,500 meters of altitude. I'm sorry that the day is pretty cloudy all the way up, because we're only 100 meters tall and, although it's pretty thin, if it had warmed up, the sun would have been even harder. In addition to the faintness we have to point out that we found a lot of traffic, both for motorcycles and heavy vehicles, which made it quite a charm on the rise. Let's not forget that Sapa is one of the most touristic places in Vietnam and there is a lot of movement, especially at weekends, as we have to add national tourism. During the ascent we make a stop to get used to fruit or liquid in one of the places of sale that there is in the highway.
Sapa is a large town with all kinds of tourist services and with a great deal of accommodation that is quite fixed and at a good price. We stayed at one of them in front of Sapa Lake, where they treated us most.

Wildlife sighting

Serp verinosa a la carretera

In Vietnam you must be alert on the roads, but not just by traffic! We almost frowned on a poisonous colobra of red neck (Rhabdophis subminiatus) that was swallowing a frog! Observe the subsequent enlargement of the neck.

    Etapa dura, tant pel desnivell de pujada, com per calor, com pel trànsit, però els paisatges a l'arribar a Sapa compensen l'esforç
