Pham Nhu Trang: Images of Sa Pa

The town of Sa Pa is located in Lao Cai Province in north-west Vietnam, near the border with China. The Hoang Lien Son range of mountains dominates the district, which is at the eastern extremity of the Himalayas. This range includes Vietnam's highest mountain, Fan Si Pan, at a height of 3142m above sea level. The town of Sa Pa lies at an altitude of about a mile.  These photographs were taken by Pham Nhu Trang, a member of the first year English class.
