Our Location

Situated deep within the famous Hoang Lien mountain range in northern Vietnam and known for its vast stretches of beautiful rice paddies and diverse ethnic minority tribal culture, Nam Cang Village can be found a 90′ drive away from Sapa town and around a 5-hour direct drive from Hanoi. 

There are a number of ways to reach us, depending on your budget and schedule, the most comfortable of which is our join-in shuttle service which completes a daily journey from Hanoi to Topas Riverside Lodge within 5 hours before returning to Hanoi. 

There is also a daily shuttle between Sapa town and Topas Riverside Lodge, departing at 7:30 am each day from 15 Le Van Tam Street. 


Our Shuttle Services

The Topas Mountain Express features eight comfortable, spacious seats and is equipped with private reading lights, Wi-FI, personal rechargeable USB ports, refillable water, and snacks for your convenience. 

Our experienced and professional drivers will ensure you have a smooth and comfortable journey up (and down!) the mountains, as well as opportunity to stretch your legs and use the restroom approximately halfway between Hanoi and Topas Riverside Lodge (the 2.5h mark).

Then, you’ll switch at Thanh Phu Bridge to our second shuttle to take you up the winding mountain roads hugging Nam Cang Valley on the final 30′ drive to Nam Cang Village.
