    If you're looking to experience the natural wonders of Vietnam and you are in good physical shape, then this 3 day Mt. Fansipan Summit trek is for you. You don't need to be a trekking expert, you just need endurance and plenty of energy to experience the Fansipan Summit in all it's glory.

    Standing at an impressive 3143m, Fansipan is the highest mountain in Vietnam and is often called "The Roof of Indochina". This remote trek provides plenty to see and absorb, from the scattered rocks inscribed with drawings and designs of unknown origin, to the French influenced hill retreat town of Sapa with its ethnic culture, beautiful villas and cherry forests.

    The trek to the top of Mt. Fansipan is challenging and will be fully supported every step of the way by our guides, porters and cooks whose local knowledge and understanding of the different hill-tribe cultures we pass along the way will add to the uniqueness of this exhilarating journey .




    This evening you will be picked up from your hotel lobby by our representative for a short transfer to Hanoi Train Station for the overnight train to Lao Cai, the gateway to Sapa (9 hour duration). Settle down for an early night to try and get as much sleep as possible for your first day of trekking as you will be woken up around 5h00am on arrival to Sapa.

    Stay overnight on the train in a comfortable soft sleeper compartment (4 berth, air-conditioned compartment). 


    DAY 1: LAO CAI - SAPA - 2,200M OF ALTITUDE (B, L, D)

    Arrive Lao Cai Train Station early this morning around 06h00, set off to meet your tour guide and driver then take a drive of 40km for over an hour drive uphill to Sapa. The ride offers a glimpse over the stunning vistas and impressive rice terraces. Upon arrival in Sapa town freshen up and have breakfast then prepare for a trek up Mt. Fansipan.

    At 09h00 you'll be driven by Jeep to Tram Ton pass (at 1900 meters of altitude) where we'll start the climb to the peak. We'll trek for 8 hours through primitive forest, many small streams and bamboo forests. Throughout this climb, we can observe and learn about the local cardamom trees, and the uses they have for this local area. Local birds can also be seen throughout this walk, with seasons varying, and the time of year you visit.

    At the base camp at the height of 2,200m, we then set up our tents, and prepare for dinner. Relax by the fire and enjoy the company of your guides and porters.

    NIGHT 2
    : Stay overnight in a camp.


    DAY 2: 2,200M - FANSIPAN PEAK - 2,700M OF ALTITUDE (B, L, D)

    With an early rise of 06h30-07h00, we have breakfast together before a hard climb up to the top of Fansipan Mountain. At the top you will be the vanquisher. We can celebrate the victorious achievement as we arrive at the very top of Fansipan Mountain (3143 meters above sea level).

    Take some time out, as you absorb the combination of the fresh crisp air, and beautiful views while overlooking Sapa town, admiring its thick green forestry landscape. (Please note: Sapa is known to be an area consisting of four seasons in one day, therefore the weather can change quite rapidly, altering from heavy mist and fog to warm sunny days. Hence, we cannot guarantee clear views from the top of this mountain)

    After enjoying the remarkable views and a picnic lunch, we commence the descent to 2,700m and set up our camp for the night. Enjoy a warming dinner as we sit around the campfire cooking together, and drift off into a well-earned sleep after an eventful day.

    NIGHT 3: Stay overnight in a camp.



    Today we can enjoy a well-deserved lye-in, rising around 07h30 for breakfast. Then walk at a gentle pace down to Sin Chai, a Black H’mong village situated at the foot of Mount Fansipan. Here we meet with our driver and we are transferred back by car to Sapa town.

    Enjoy the rest of your day at leisure. Time to relax or wander around the town and visit Sapa ethnic market on your own.

    16h30: Take a shower at hotel and have dinner before transfer downhill to Lao Cai for the night train to Hanoi (your overnight train departs before 22h00).

    NIGHT 4: Stay overnight on the train in a comfortable soft sleeper compartment (4 berth, air-conditioned compartment). 

    Early arrival in Hanoi around 5h00am next day then transfer to your hotel or central Hanoi for onward departure.
