What to prepare before you climb Fansipan peak

Besides your good health, the only thing you should bring yourself is a pair of good walking-boots, or another kind of solid foot-wear. You should have tried them out beforehand, and know that you can walk in them all through the day !

Essentials:

- 2 pairs of thick socks ( for use in the walking-boots)Sandals or light footwear ( for use in the evening )
- Sun-cream (with a high factor ; 10-20 )
-Mosquito repellent
-Hat or cap, with a shade
-Bathing suit
-Medicine for your own use (fever, bad stomach etc.)
- Warm jacket and pullover (expected to be very cold), preferable with head cover
- Rain coat (big enough to cover you backpack as well), cap, glasses
- Flash light
- Well-fitted gloves to help grab while trekking.
- First aid kit (aspirin, anti-biotic, salon pas, healing tape, energy pills...)
- Personal hygiene stuffs

-Toilet requisitesOptionals:

Additional tips:
- All belongings should be compact, light and just sufficient for the trek and to avoid unnecessary burden
- Clothing should be loose to make it easy for long treks

- Keep a good stable pace, no need to rush in any case. If you are ahead of the group,
slow down and wait for the company.
