The Huffington Post
has described the sunset seen from a Sa Pa mountain peak one of the most breathtaking sights in the world.
The list names eight best vantage points in the world, including Mount Ham Rong, which stands close to the northern resort town Sa Pa, at 1,850 meters height.
From Ham Rong, travelers can see the sunset paint “brilliant hues” on the town and valley below as it comes down, it said.
They will also catch beautiful views of the Indochina rooftop, Fansipan.
Visitors will have to pay VND70,000 ($3.25) to climb up Ham Rong, which has been developed into a mountain park with gardens.
Four of the spots selected for beautiful sunsets are in the US -- the Summit Lake at Mount Rainier National Park in Washington, Schwabacher Landing at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, Mount Tamalpais in San Francisco, California, and Mauna Kea peak in Hawaii.
Others are the Panorama Ridge at Garibaldi Provincial Park in Canada, the Playa Jacó beach in Costa Rica and Mount Torrenthorn in Switzerland.
