Picturesque town of Sapa in Northern Vietnam. The town is nestled in some of the highest peaks in Vietnam and it’s close proximity to Hanoi ensures that it is a popular weekend destination for city slickers. I climbed Vietnam’s highest peak (10,310 feet) in one day while I was here; it was an exhilarating trek and a personal challenge for me.

It’s back to square one after a long journey in Southeast Asia. A boundless journey which I embarked on all alone. A journey, the rewards of which cannot be measured in monetary terms. A journey, the experiences from which will stay with me for a life time. A journey, which has shaped me into a better person today.
I was traveling in Southeast Asia’s Indochina region. Indochina is another name for mainland Southeast Asia, which comprises of Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and peninsular Malaysia.
