We stayed at the Topas Ecolodge but spent a full day hiking and ended it at this deep in the Sapa Valley Lodge. Cross a wire bridge (one at a time, LOL) to this rustic wooden building that houses both simple accommodations and restaurant. Fresh local cuisine is served family style, hot and delicious. Wish our stay was longer to take in an herbal bath or tour. We wandered with our guide to a local home occupied by the village papermaker. She showed us how she mixes rice water and bamboo to a filmy consistency and pours it out to sun dry. This simple technique spans generations and helps the locals in their writing and language skills.
