A beautiful if busy waterfall 11kms from Sapa and enroute to spectacular Tram Ton Pass, Vietnam’s highest mountain pass.

Note: The information provided in this review was correct at time of publishing but may change. For final clarification please check with the relevant service

Thach Bac or Silver waterfall is a compulsory stop for local tour groups and can be pretty busy. The falls are beautiful but probably only warrant a visit if time permits and in conjunction with a visit to Tram Ton Pass 3kms further along the road.

Tram Ton Pass is Vietnam’s highest mountain pass. On a clear day, the views are spectacular. Don’t be deterred by mist in Sapa. Conditions on the pass are frequently different to those in town. The temperature can also rise quite a bit on the pass as you break away from the cooler air of Sapa.
