Mt. Fansipan Trek 7 Days/6 Nights

At 3, 143 metres Mt Fansipan is Vietnam’s highest mountain. Although only 9 km from Sapa town, it takes at least three days to get to the peak and back. The top is accessible year-round to anybody, so long as they are in good shape. As there are no mountain huts on the way, tents and sleeping bags are provided. Our porters carry the equipment and food. This trip offers very basic, roughing it conditions! No ropes or technical climbing skills are needed, just endurance and plenty of energy. The terrain is rugged, wet and often cold so wet weather gear and appropriate shoes are a must. During the summer months of June to August it can also be very hot so you need to plan in advance for a variety of possible conditions. Climbing Mt Fansipan in Vietnam is for active adventure seekers who are up for a challenge!
