The cable system built by Sun Group brings tourists to Fansipan Peak, the highest mountain in Indochina at 3,143m above sea level.
Sun World Fansipan Legend, located in the southwest of Sa Pa Town, is a tourism service complex.
Violet colour runs through the immense atmosphere.
Besides the beautiful flowers, the plant, called verbena in English, has been used as a valuable herb used as a painkiller and bacteria killer. It can help stop bleeding and stimulate milk production in animals in the baby feeding period. It was recently discovered to limit the development of malaria parasites.
It blooms between spring and autumn. VNS
