The Black Hmong are the 3rd largest minority in Vietnam with nearly
900,000 people. In the Sapa region there are about 35,000 Black Hmong
residing in the surrounding 17 villages and they account for about 50%
of the area population. Most reside at an altitude of 1,600 – 1,700
meters above sea level in this stunningly beautiful region they call
“the city above the clouds”. The Hmong started migrating to Vietnam
from China in the last 300 years.
In this region about half the Hmong are Catholic and half animistic. They live of the land growing rice and corn and they all believe in the spirits.
