Leeches at an altitude of 3,000m

Professor L.Salles wrote, in the eyes of travelers to Sapa Vietnam, the massive Fansipan mountain range running in the northwest – southeast direction immediately caught the eye, like a giant wall covered with trees everywhere. Compared to Sapa Vietnam, it is only 1,200m higher. Until now, people have only described the general features of the Fansipan range when viewed from Sapa Vietnam. In fact, the Fansipan range stretches for nearly 20km to the southwest. To the northwest, it continues across the short low-lying area of the O Quy Ho pass, to the May Pass and even beyond the border with China. The elevation in this area is found to be 2,910 and even 3,096 meters, which means very close to the highest point.

The fauna seems particularly poor. It is rumored that there are bears and deer in the Fansipan range, but we did not see any sign of leopards and tigers. Birds abound, especially up to an altitude of 2,400m. Many times I met wild chickens. I noted a distant companion a swarm of wasps from the 2,100m flank; A swarm of mosquitoes invaded our tent on the 2,900m slopes. Finally, we found the appearance of leeches at a very high point, about 3,000m.

In the Sapa Vietnam valley, most of the men from the villages of Yi-lin-ho and Phin-ho went one or more times to the slopes of Fansipan. In the summer, they also come here to pluck the hyacinth, a plant used to treat eye diseases. The Hmong people travel on steep steep trails with flexible hips and strong spines, with 15-20kg of luggage on their backs. Their bodies seemed to be made of malleable steel, moving gently with smiles on their faces. They are trusted companions.
