Fansipan Mountain, Sa Pa Reviews

  • Best view from the TOP of Fansipan! remember to wear thick clothing because very cold up there.

  • Service in North of Vietnam is generally not good. Its compulsory to book a tour package to trek to this mount. The cost is roundly 50-60$ for 2D1N trip, 8h up and 4-5h down. It didnt start on time, the dishes were so so. The worthiest thing were the view on the trekking way was so spectacular. I loved the time here much.

  • Just Breathtaking. Arrive between 7-8am and you will have one of the greatest experiences of your lifetime!

  • I had a hiking trip here without any cable car built yet. It is good experience.

  • I was lucky, by far travel and hiking to this mountain before cable car was built. Chilling night with hail, morning with full of clouds astonish and amazing.
