Thac Bac Waterfall (Silver Falls), Sapa

3.1
#4 of 11 in Parks in Sapa
Take a hike up to see Thac Bac Waterfall (Silver Falls), resembling a great white dragon coming down from the sky. Only 12 km (7.5 mi) from the town center, the cataract plummets from Lo Sui Tong mountain peak. Admire the mountainside and lush vegetation surrounding you on your walk, and snap photos of the bridge stretching over the water and the scenic views of the national park. Have good footwear as the stairs up to the fall can get slippery when wet. To visit Thac Bac Waterfall (Silver Falls) and other attractions in Sapa, use our Sapa online journey planner .
