Topas Ecolodge in Sapa tops list from National Geographic on environmentally-friendly places to stay.

by Le Diem

High on a hilltop outside Sapa in Vietnam’s north, Topas Ecolodge has been listed No. 1 on a list of “21 Places to Stay if You Care About the Planet” by National Geographic.

“Sustainable, spectacular and engaged with local communities, these lodges are tucked into some of the planet’s wildest places,” it commented. “Topas Ecolodge is an amazing mountain hideaway.”

The accolade comes just prior to Topas Ecolodge opening a new infinity pool with spectacular views. Each bungalow at the resort, built of white stone, has a large terrace overlooking mountains and terraced rice fields.

At an elevation of 1,500 meters (4,921 feet) above sea level, Sapa is known for its terraced rice fields and trekking trails. The harvest season in October is amazing for both sightseeing and trekking, with beautiful yellow rice paddy fields.
