Fansipan mountain Overview:

Location:
Fansipan Mountain is located 9km south-west of Sapa Townlet in the Hoang
Lien Mountain Range.

Highlights:
Fansipan is branded "the Roof of Indochina" at the height of 3,143m; Fansipan is to be approved as one of the very few eco-tourist spots of Vietnam, with about 2,024 floral varieties and 327 faunal species. The climb is rough, wet and cold, but the views are rewarding if the weather is good. The top is accessible year-round to anyone who is in good shape and properly equipped. No ropes or technical climbing skills are needed, just endurance.Trekking time is 5 - 8 hours per day.

“To make the trip successful, apart from strong determination and a good backpack, climbers must also check their stamina. This means they should practise by climbing other, smaller mountains such as Ba Vi or Tam Dao,” Quang said.
 
Vietnamese climbers often choose long holidays to take the trip to Fansipan, especially the period from Tet to the end of May, which includes the big national holidays of Liberation Day (April 30) and Labour Day (May 1).
 
Experienced climbers say it takes about two or three days to reach the peak following the shortest route. They pay attention the safest way and try to pick the time with the best weather and lowest rainfall, typically between February and April when flowers bloom and hikers have a chance to see the beauty of the Sa Pa region.
 
Those who start from Ha Noi can take a train to Lao Cai Province then reach Sa Pa by motorbike.or by car
 
There are three routes to the mountain. One is from Tram Ton, the others from the villages of Sin Chai and Cat Cat.
 
The first route is a more gradual climb because it has been selected for tourists. The trip can be made in a day.
 
The route from Sin Chai is shorter but more adventurous, requiring climbers to sometimes use ropes or other special facilities for climbing.
 
The route from Cat Cat is the longest, but mixes some challenging climbs with great scenery. After one day of climbing, there’s a break at 2,200m above sea level. Climbers can have a meal cooked by a Mong porter and camp, followed by a second camp at 2,700m before reaching the peak on the third day.
 
Most climbers chose a tour from Sa Pa at a cost of about VND1.5 million excluding train fare from Ha Noi, and tours should be booked a month in advance.
 
This year, those who make it to the top will see a new plaque at the peak, placed there in February 2007 by Vietnamese and foreign climbers from the First Fansipan International Climbing Tournament.
 
The old plaque was first set up by a group of Vietnamese and Russian climbers in 1984. It was first replaced in 2003 when Sa Pa township celebrated its 100th anniversary, but this plaque was heavily vandalised and damaged by severe weather, said Hoang Lien Son National Park director Nguyen Quoc Tri, necessitating its replacement last year.

This challenging trek climbs overgrown paths, through 100-year-old pine forests, bamboo thickets and jungle.

At the summit, on a clear day, you are rewarded with panoramic views of the mountain ranges of northwest Vietnam, south to Son La Province and north to the peaks of Yunnan in China. Your trek is fully supported every step of the way by guides, porters and cooks who’s local knowledge adds to this exhilarating journey.

The cable car system in Sapa will be the world’s longest and highest cable car, running up from sleepy Sapa Town in Lao Cai Province to the peak of 3,143-meter Fansipan Mountain, known as Indochina’s rooftop.
 
Reaching Mount Fansipan used to mean a full-day hike at least. But from later this September the trek up will be reduced to a 20-minute flight by cable car. From Sapa, it takes about 20 minutes to Cable car station.

This expedition combines adventure with comfort. You travel overnight on a sleeper train between Hanoi and Sapa, enjoy comfortable hotels and camp at designated sites on Mt. Fansipan. You can contact Climb Fansipan Team or visa du lịch mông cổ for more information!
