A wide eyed lens view of trekking in Sapa
Experiencing local cultures authentically is an amazing experience that can be found in many places around the world. One such place is Sapa, a small town in Northern Vietnam.
There are a variety of activities to do in the town, from trekking to visiting local villages. Trekking is a great way to explore the area and to get a better understanding of the local culture. The trekking routes vary from easy to difficult, so there is something for everyone. The trekking routes also offer a variety of stunning views, from the rice paddies to the mountains.
Jack Taylor is my guest and he talks about his experience trekking in the region, and his interactions with the various hill tribes such as the Hmong, the Tay, and the Dao. In particular the Dao tribe which is who he does his 3 day trek with. His cinematography captures the beauty of the area, and he has great tips for those looking to go trekking in Sapa.
It’s a great show for trekking enthusiasts and people looking for a very authentic close up view of the local people in their own habitat.
