Thac Bac Waterfall (Silver Falls), Sapa

3.0
#4 of 6 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 .

  • We could only visit to the cross bridge as we were on a package tour. The view there is spectacular. Definitely going there again once I visit Sapa and gotta hike up to the top of the waterfall.  more »
  • A short trek (200 steps) takes you to the base of one of the best waterfalls in Vietnam. You can get some amazing pictures from the various view points which have been created by the authorities.  more »
  • Beautiful waterfall, impressive at the end of the rainy season (October) but not possible to climb because earthen paths too slippery. It's beautiful, even seen from below

Where to stay in Sapa

As the primary city to look for accommodations in the northwest, Sapa possesses a wealth of choices to suit a range of tastes and budgets. The main urban area offers a large number of standard hotels, hostels, and guesthouses, with views of the surrounding hills among the biggest brags in town. Some luxury options lie within the confines of the town, offering spa facilities and onsite restaurants. Out among the rice terraces lie a number of pristine resorts and the odd eco-friendly lodge or rental villa.
