Fansipan Mountain Hiking – 1 day

Fansipan  is a mountain in Vietnam, the highest in Indochina (comprising Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia), at 3,143 metres (10,312 ft). It is located in the Lào Cai Province of the Northwest region of Vietnam, 9 km southwest of Sa Pa Township in the Hoang Lien Son mountain range.

Fansipan is dubbed “the Roof of Indochina” and has about 2,024 floral varieties and 327 faunal species.The topography of Fansipan is varied. Muong Hoa Valley, at the lowest altitude (950-1000 m), is created by a narrow strip of land at the base on the east side of the mountain. It can be climbed in a steep and fairly strenuous hike .

Perfect for hardcore trekkers short on time but not on energy.

With an early start time of 5.30am – 6am, we meet our guide and driver. We are then transferred by car 15km from Sapa, to arrive at the Fansipan Park Ranger’s Station at a height of 2,000m, ready to begin the climb. The mountain’s ecosystem is rich, with 2,024 floral varieties and 327 faunal species. The challenging ascent and descent will take around 7-8 hours. Throughout, we hike through stunning primary deciduous and evergreen forests, follow crystal clear mountain streams, and brave windswept ridges. Short breaks along the way will allow you to take in the various scenic views that this climb has to offer. Forest types change with increasing altitude. Around the summit, dwarf bamboo is all that can survive. We arrive at the 3,143m summit around midday, and celebrate this victory with a picnic lunch, sitting high above the hills with views of this stunning mountainous landscape. The descent, will take around 3-4 hours (depending on individual fitness levels). We arrive back at the start point with the car waiting for us and are taken back to Sapa. To the victors belong the spoils! Our tour is completed with a soothing herbal medicine bath or foot massage.
