Today, sitting down and thinking, I want to write you some feelings about Sapa. Every once in a while, my heart is fluttered when I remembered my first trip to that magic land. My first visit to Sapa on that winter.
The first feeling was the cold numbness in the early morning. As I inhaled the cold air, i rubbed his hands together. The city is peaceful in the early morning. It was a strange feeling when coming to a place I first set foot. The first time the car "climbed" high on the mountain so it felt like on the plane. On the side is the mountain, others side is the abyss. I kept looking down and imagining sitting on a Boeing 747 flying in the sky. The wind blows, clouds like smoke are hurrying like chasing each other because the wind is pushing them. The landscape is blurred, the mist covers the valley, and the scenery is true:
"Mountain hugging clouds, clouds embracing mountains."
The cold air spread across space, clouds still drifted toward the infinitive horizon. Sometimes the car goes through a dense cloud and then falls into a clear empty area. Streams are winding along the mountain ridge. It is a picturesque landscape, a majestic wild beauty. The scene is as a natural fairy is displaying jade: Beautiful - Impressive - Fluttering.
Watching the clouds at an altitude of about 1800m, you can probably take the view of the legendary Sa Pa valley hidden in clusters of white clouds floating in the wind. Then across the vast meteoric forest, layers of stone interwoven with all shapes, spoiled for the imagination to drop into the magnificent picture of nature. On the way to the gate of the heavens, you see only the clear blue sky; under your foot is all the cloud.
Sapa is indeed a place with a very special climate. We can feel the full four seasons in a day. In the morning, the air is cool and fresh as spring. At noon, the sun was coming up and it feels like the summer sun. Moving on to the afternoon, the temperature changes very fast. I have a cool feeling, the sunshine was fading like the dreamy sunshine of the autumn. And when the night comes, even in the midst of summer you have to go to bed with a blanket - feeling like the winter is coming.
Sapa is a place of convergence and rich in flowers, the vegetation is very diverse. The rhododendron flowers have full of color. The wild orchids were blooming. All the ethnic minorities' people bring a variety of plants, of flowers from the mountains and forests to sell in this small town.
As night falls, the small town lights up with a yellow light bulb overhead gloomy around the center of the town small. Several old plum trees bloom as white as snow. The fog was so dense, you even cannot see clearly anyone standing in front of you just 5-6m away. I have the feeling like I'm lost in the land of fog - London - in the strange west. The jacket was covered over my head, I walked in the cold, in the mists of Sapa town. That feeling, that impression is unforgettable.
The Silver Fall is about 600 m higher than the town. The car continued to climb, the clouds were still floating outside the car window. Every cloud is dense, then expanding out. I feel like the car is climbing, crossing through the clouds. That was how the fairyland is! Just keep going ahead, going through, one after another. And as it passed through the last cloud, the sky seemed to burst into the sunshine. The sun was pouring its light everywhere… The scenery was so beautiful in a quiet and strange way. I stood still to feel. All the emotions in me were rising up in a way that it's difficult to describe. Until now, I still want to keep it deep in my heart - the feeling that I have never met in my life.
