My reviews for tours in Climb Fansipan

2D1N Fansipan tour package from Lao Cai

With content: We booked this tour from Climb Fansipan and everything went smoothly from the get-go. It was a 2 day 1 Night trek. I found it physically demanding as we were running a tight schedules with minimal rests. I cannot stress the importance of warm clothing especially if you are intending to hike it during the December-Jan period. The temperature can be as low as 0 degree celsius. It was especially hard to get to sleep at night..especially when our tent was getting pounded by ferocious winds. It was supported by bamboo sticks (tent is built by the guide and porters from Climbfansipan.com). Thankfully, it didnt cave in! We set off at about 5am to make our final push to the summit. Bring torchlights as there are some roots that jut out from the ground. I wore my Vibrams Five Fingers...bad choice! When we reached the summit, the rush of emotions and the sense of achievement is simply overwhelming. For those who want to make a phonecall to their special ones back in town, there is reception...NOT from Vietnam but from China!
We made our descent with little fuss but i have to add that the constant balancing and stepping downs is rather jarring for the knees!

Thumbs up to Climb Fansipan, especially Dem, our guide :)


4D3N Hanoi– Sapa - Climb Fansipan 2days 1 night – Hanoi

With content: We bought the Fansipan tour for a 2dn trip from our hotel and found that the Fansipan trip arranged by the Climbfansipan.com who picked us up to the train station, change the ticket to Lao cai and a tour guide there transfer us to Sapa hotel where we relax, breakfast and have a team meeting before starting the climb. All the service on the mountain are really good, fresh vegetable booked on the mountain was great, the porter really strong and working hard. We conquered the roof of Indochina and really feel happy to climb up with the Climb fansipan team. Highly recommend!

My recommendation to Climb Fansipan
