In this tour, you will be taken by our experienced local guide to the heights of the Hoang Lien Son mountain range.

You will see the change in the vegetation with the mountain’s altitude. Giant, centuries-old pine trees and expanses of yellow bamboo mark the higher reaches of our climb, and we may see mountain goats and langur monkeys along the way.

Two days trek, we will be camped at 2.900 m. Here you can join our guide to cooking and make some delicious foods for dinner.

This climb is a challenge for you to break your limits. However, don’t worry. With the support of the porters, you will be guided by our dedicated guide through each specific step to conquer the roof of Indochina.

What to Expect

The peak is on the Hoang Lien Son mountain range, which has the status of a nature reserve. It protects the great diversity of animal and plant life, including over 100 hundred varieties of orchids that flourish in this unique ecosystem. You can see the vegetation change as you trek higher, culminating in a forest of dwarf bamboo near the top.


Day 1: Sapa – Tram Ton pass – The point is 2.800 meters (6 hours).

At 8:00 AM: Then you have breakfast and enjoy morning coffee. You will move to our office, where you can leave luggage, receive water and protective gloves, and prepare for the trek.

At 8:30 AM: After a short introduction by your guide, the conquest of Fansipan Peak will start with a transfer from Sapa town to Tram Ton point, where you set the first steps in the journey to conquer Fansipan and enjoy the scenery of Hoang Lien Sơn mountain range.

Throughout this climb, we can observe and learn about the local cardamom plants and the uses they have for this local area. As we trek up to 2,200m, we relax with a picnic lunch for an hour. We then keep on trekking up to the altitude of 2,900m; you will see the panoramic view of Hoang Lien National Park and the vegetation system.

At around 3 PM: Arrive at the height of 2900m, after setting up camp for the night; dinner is cooking on the campfire. Ready to unwind from the day, you will find yourself sleeping soundly while nestled amongst the mountains’ rugged beauty.

At the end of the evening, you can enjoy the night sky with thousands of stars in a quiet forest; soak up nature where there is no smoke and noise.

Day 2: The point 2900m – Fansipan peak – Sapa (6.5 hours).

At around 6 – 6:30 AM: We will have breakfast together before we are at the last stage to conquer Fansipan Peak.

After about 1.5 hours, we will arrive at Fansipan Peak and enjoy an impressive morning on the roof of Indochina. We can celebrate the victorious achievement as we arrive at the top, 3,143m above sea level.

After about 1 hour of sightseeing and taking photos at Fansipan peak, we will go down to 2800m and enjoy a picnic lunch around 1.30 pm.

Time to walk to the Tram Ton Pass is quite easy but no less attractive.

At around 3 PM, we will arrive Tram Ton pass, where our driver awaits, and we will be transferred back to Sapa Town.

Ends of the tour.

Things Must Know

C:  When you arrive at the top, if you are too tired, on the way back, you can catch Cable Car down, but our service will NOT include this, even transport from the Cable station to your accommodation.

Bus from Hanoi <=> Sapa, It takes about 6 hours. If you arrive at Sapa early, the bus will let you sleep until 5 AM.

The Cabin Sleeper Bus and Single Cabin Sleeper Bus are private, but if you are taller than 1m7, you might consider the Sleeper Bus because you can adjust the bed, making you more comfortable. However, if you want private, the other 2 options would be best.

We opted for the two day trek up Fansipan - day one was a steady pace, not too rushed which was good given the second half of the day was steep and tough going. The path, though is well maintained now with lots of steps and even ladders in place of scrambling (and slipping) on rocks and near vertical faces. The "Sleeping Place" used by all treks is run down and very basic but you'll not be there long if you get up to climb the last part to the top of Fansipan for sunrise. We left 3.45am on the second day to get to the top for a 5.30am sunrise. We were so pleased we did as it was a clear day and a great sunrise. The trek itself is again tough - and the last part within the Buddhist Temple grounds on the summit are not for the faint hearted either! Being up for sunrise means you beat the crowds coming up from 8.00am on the Cable Car.

This trek of 2days 1night was wonderful. Pure nature, amazing views during the climbing, if you love nature you will be really enjoyed. Our guide didn't speak English very well but enough for basic questions and he took care of us at every moments. Food was really delicious, typical of Viet Nam, with generous portions, and various dishes! Everything was perfect. When we arrived to agency for the pick up they offered us to take a shower and then when we get back to, and they also offered the breakfast for the first day. Special mention for Mr. Chuong, one of the employee of the agency. He speaks English very well and he is really simpathic. When we booked the activity, he contacted us by WhatsApp to help us to prepare the trek and he also fixed a problem really quickly with the reservation. Becarefull, the trek is physical with many longs and sloping sections, so it is exhausting for non athletic people. However I'm not fit but I did it! I suffered but the views really deserve it and at the end you feel so happy and proud that you forget all the rest. Thank you nomad trails!
