Sinho in detail

Flights & getting there

If you’re travelling on two wheels, the turn-off uphill to Sinho is 1km north of Chan Nua on the main road from Muong Lay to Lai Chau. Definitely ask about the state of the road from Sinho to Lai Chau before you leave Hanoi, as the road is subject to landslides.

Sinho's tiny bus station has departures for Dien Bien Phu at 6am, 7am and 8am (90,000d, five hours); and Lai Chau, with departures every half hour from 6am to 4.30pm (45,000d, two hours).
