Lester Ledesma’s PhotoTreks Goes to Sapa Valley, Vietnam this September 2015
“A picture is worth a thousand words,” so they say. Be it photographs of the ones you love, of landscapes, of your pets, or—yes—even of yourself (selfies), there’s no beating the amount of sentiments and memories stored by our favorite photographs. And we all have to agree that the better a picture is taken, the more beauty and emotion it preserves.

This year, Ledesma and PhotoTreks are going to Sapa Valley in Vietnam. Sapa Valley has been a tourist attraction for quite a while now, because of its lush, green vegetation, its rich, preserved culture, and its climate. It is located at 1,500 meters above sea level, so just imagine the multitude of amazing shots you can get at this spectacular place with Ledesma himself and your own camera.
Aside from photography lessons and trekking Northern Vietnam, PhotoTrekkers will also get to immerse themselves in Sapa Valley’s diverse culture and traditions.
