Cherry apricot trees here are planted alternately along the paths between the tea hills. This is also a characteristic of Sa Pa compared to the cherry blossom season in other localities such as Da Lat and Kon Tum.

From Sa Pa town, tourists travel in the direction of National Highway 4D (road to Thac Bac, O Quy Ho pass) to reach O Long tea hill. After about 7 km to O Quy Ho Kindergarten, you ask for directions and then go another 500 m along the small road to reach the tea hill area.

Cherry apricot is a woody tree, usually losing all its leaves around October – November every year, leaving only spindly branches. When spring comes, flowers cover all the branches and branches, bringing a unique beauty to this tree.

The cherry blossom season is only about a month long. The flowers are at their most beautiful blooming time. If you want to immerse yourself in the fullest flower colors, visitors should arrange time to come to Sa Pa this week. If you don’t have time, you can wait until early January, when this flower blooms on many streets in Da Lat.

The cherry apricot groves in Sa Pa belong to a private tea farm, so visiting is limited. Visitors can enjoy the panoramic view of the flower season on the road leading to O Quy Ho pass.

According to the experience of photographers, the two most suitable time frames to take photos of tea hills are early morning (about 6:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.) and before sunset (about 3:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.). This is when the sun is low and the sunlight shines obliquely, highlighting the pink color of the cherry apricot.
