Hoang Su Phi is a mountainous region in northern Vietnam, which shares its border with China. Uncover a charmingly picturesque region with steep winding hill roads, terrace paddy fields, velvety green hills, high mountain passes and mountain streams flowing through narrow valleys. Off the beaten track, this highland country is home to a variety of Vietnamese ethnic communities and their distinctive cultures. As yet unspoilt by modern tourism, the area is marked by remote hill villages dotted with thatched homesteads built on stilts, and bustling Sunday markets. Hoang Su Phi offers stunning photo ops of sweeping highland landscapes, especially during the autumnal harvest season when the rice farms turn golden.
