Day 2: Sapa – Love Waterfall – Silver Waterfall – Lao Cai (B,L)
Breakfast at hotel, then check out and today you will visit 2 beautiful waterfalls in Sapa which are not missed in your journey before coming back to Hanoi.
Love Waterfall, located about 4km to the North-West of Sa Pa Town. Driving on a red soil road to the waterfalls that winds through a primitive forest of lush ancient ivory trees and rhododendron flowers in white, red and yellow color, you will have a chance to enjoy a perfect painting-like landscape. From afar, the waterfall looks like a twinkling pyramid under the sun. This 100m high mountain starts from the peak of Fansipan Mountain and rushes noisily into the Gold Stream like a never-ending song. Under the waterfall, the Gold Stream runs along with green grass plots and bamboo clusters, forming a poetic image. According to the local people, the name of the waterfall originates from a love story. Legend has it that long ago, fairies from heaven used to come to the waterfall to bathe. One day, the seventh fairy saw O Qui Ho, the first son of Ai Lao Mountain Genie who was playing his flute near the falls. Mesmerized by the flute sounds, the fairy spent every night listening to the sweet melodies until her parents detected her secret and forbade her from coming to the human world. The fairy missed O Qui Ho so much that she spent every afternoon at heaven’s gate looking towards the waterfall and waiting for the sounds of the flute. Then, she turned herself into a yellow bird that lives on O Qui Ho Mountain. Since then, the waterfall is called “Love” to remind everyone of the legendary love story. End of the day, you are back to Lao Cai and take a night train to Hanoi.
