Ma tien thao, scientifically known as Verbena officinalis, has tiny flowers with 5 petals each and grows in dense clusters. Along with violet, the dominant color in Sapa, ma tien thao also boasts its own charm in white, pink, and blue.

The violet flowers bloom over a total area of 75,000sq.m, covering quite a large area in the iconic Muong Hoa cable station, which brings tourists to Fansipan peak - Indochina's highest mountain ( 3,143m above sea level).

The overwhelming beauty of a natural flower carpet will surely give visitors a dreamlike feeling like they're walking in heaven - a heaven of thousands of tiny flower clusters swaying in the wind.

On top of that, the alluring aroma of the flowers is bound to make the experience more complete and unforgettable.

The flower is also considered a herbal medicine, which is commonly used to treat skin conditions, including bruises, burns, itching; or to alleviate symptoms of colds, shortness of breath, sinusitis, arthritis or gout.

Together with the famous rose valley - which earned the title “the largest rose valley in Vietnam” earlier on May 23, the ma tien thao hill makes Sapa a must-pick stop for nature lovers and photo enthusiasts alike. For couples looking for a sense of romance, ma tien thao hill is no doubt a wonderful choice.

Being the "legendary background" of many tourists in the past year, the "violet hill" is seemingly twice as beautiful now as it used to be. The newly-expanded area and the improved flower growing technology add a lot to this transformation.
