Wild Himalaya cherry blossom season lasts only about a month long. If you want to enjoy the scenery at the fullest, you should spend time preparing a trip to Sapa this week. If not, you can wait until early January, when this flower blooms in many roads in Da Lat.
The wild Himalayan cherry trees in Sapa are part of a private tea farm, so the visiting is limited. Visitors can admire the panoramic flower view on the road leading to O Quy Ho pass.
According to the photographers, the two most suitable time for photographing tea hills are early morning (around 6:30 – 8:00) and before sunset (around 15 – 17:30). This is when the sun is low which make the light be able to highlight the pink shade of the wild Himalayan cherry blossom.
