Thac Bac (Silver waterfall) & Tram Ton Pass


This trip can be done by both jeep or motorbike, though travelling by motorbike offer more opportunities to stop and take in the breathtaking scenery along the way. Thac Bac (Silver waterfall) is 14km from Sapa along a winding and scenic road. While the waterfall may not be the biggest cascade of water tobe seen, the setting is beautiful and the sound of water spilling over the rocks is magical for some.

A further 5km takes us over the Tram Ton pass (the highest mountain pass in Vietnam) and into the province of Lai Chau. We notice a change in temperature - it is usually a few degrees warmer and any mist we ,may have travelled, through is left behind. Stopping at a scenic lookout point, we can wonder at the fortitude of those who carved out the twisting road through the pass hundreds of years ago.
