Fansipan Climbing (5 Days)
Fansipan climbing is for some one who don’t mind taking adventures and fit to climb 9 hours a day, copping with some steep slops and cliffs, snakes and wild insects, overnight in camp for several days.
Day 1: From Hanoi boarding a night train at 9:30pm (soft sleeper) and arrive Lao Cai at 4:30 am in the morning, and transfer to Sapa town, check in hotel, stay at leisure and seeing Sapa town (1,500,000m above sea level, weather is always very comfortable in summer and down to average of 7degree in winter), chatting with minority groups is a fun..
Day 2: AM: leaving Sapa early in the morning, passing some villages of some minority groups, climbing upward until you reached to the rainforest. Overnight at the elevation of 2000metres. (there are some porters to help you carrying your stuff), the view is so great but also dangerous from cliffs!
Day 3: The next day, after breakfast, you will continue climbing to reach to the roof of Vietnam at the height of 3143metres- viewing Sapa town-and all areas around. You will have a feeling of being hero and brave yourself (today is harder than the first day, more steep, at the last part of climbing you will have to hold up to a rope to get to the top). A picnic lunch on the top then get back to the camp at the altitude of 2100metres, sleep and have your dinner in the camp
Day 4: After the morning coffee you will start going down. You are to Sapa town in the afternoon. Well done, congratulation!
Day 5: Morning our guide will bring you to HamRong mount (soft trek-easy and comfortable one) seeing cultural show and flower park, stay at leisure at you hotel, afternoon transfer to Lao Cai train station for Hanoi, arrive Hanoi at 5:00 am in the morning.
Warning! climbing to Fansipan is a difficult adventure: cliffs of rock mountains, wet, and slippy, and is very cold in winter time. Many people have reached to the top of Fansipan and felt great them self and admired the beauty, but quite a few people had to surrender the Fansipan when they were in the middle of the trip.
