    Sapa Ancient Rock Field Overview


    Location: 
    Sapa Ancient Rock Field is in Muong Hoa Valley, Hau Thao Commune, Sapa District, Lao Cai Province.


    Characteristic:
    This 8sq.km-area of remains consists of large multi-grade rocks engraved with ancient images.

    Sapa Ancient Rock Field is between the terraced rice paddies of ethnic minority groups. The first exploration research, in 1925, recorded that there were 200 stones of various dimensions concentrated in the area. Hon Bo, which is 15m long and 6m high, is the biggest of theses rocks. 


    The engravings on the surfaces of the stone are either pictographic or decorative. 
    Remarkably, among the engravings are drawings of humans, stilt-houses of the ethnic minorities and symbols believed to be a primitive form of writing. But their meaning has not yet been deciphered.
