Fansipan Mountain, Sa Pa Reviews - Write a Review

  • It is all a big show for Chinese tourists who push you around at the summit to get their billion selfies. They don't care about anyone else, disrespectful and disgusting behaviour. If you don't get your eyes poked out by a selfie stick and you are maybe able to get there between 8-9am you probably have a nice and quiet experience! Otherwise..don't be bothered

  • Can't express my feeling when I reached the top of the mountain after 2 days trekking with my friends. Wonderful view, cold and fresh air. Highly recommend if you want to be a risktaker and challenge yourself.

  • The feeling of standing on summit watching the sea of clouds is wonderful. Although many say that the construction of the cable car causes damage to the wildness and disruption of the Fansipan mountain ecosystem, many people can see the Roof of Indochina for the first time. The cable route goes across the magnificent valley of rice terraces. Nice time to visit is from noon to sunset in summer. At noon, there's not many visitors, can see the clear blue sky. In the afternoon can watch the beautiful sunset on the mountain. The morning is often foggy. At the top of the mountain, the temperature is often very low and humidity is high, so warm clothing is required.

  • This is a must-visited place when you are in Sa Pa area. Farsipan is the Roof of Indochina . It was awesome to visit the highest point of Indochina with spectacular mountainous scenery. There are Buddha statue, a pagoda and temple on Farsipan. It is well worth to spend to go up on the cable car to Farsipan summit platform. This is the world's longest three-wire cable car (6292.5 m). When you are on 10,000 feet cable station platform, there are several hundred step stairs to climb to the Farsipan summit point. Take easy for your breathing and heart because thin oxygenated air at 10,000 feet and be careful for walking on stair steps. There is a short fanicular ride to go up if you feel difficulties on walking stair steps.
