“Very great trip to mount Fansipan !”
Thanks, Zonitrip for this great experience! We climbed the mount Fansipan, the highest point in Vietnam. We were in Yen Bai which is 3hours from Hanoi by bus. Nghia organized everything for us, as dropped us on the Highway at midnight to catch the bus to Sapa!
We were only four in our group, and we started to hike the first day and we slept in the base camp (2800m). Good atmosphere and good people over there! The guide cooked a great meal for us and we spent a good time drinking some local alcohol and beers (you can find beers in the hut but you have to bring your own alcohol 😉
The day after we started to hike around 6.30am for 2 hours until the top of the Fansipan.
Unfortunately, it was really cloudy, like almost every day so no regrets!
We decided to go down by the cable car (600 000 dng) cause of the rain. We had time to visit around Sapa and to meet some locals before to take the bus. The city is really nice even if it’s extremely touristy…
We went back in Yen Bai around 8 pm and Nghia was waiting for us with her husband to drop us at home.
That was 2 really nice days! Thank you so much for everything! I highly recommend Zonitrip!
“Amazing 5D/5N trip in North Vietnam”Thank you Nghia for organizing the best trip I ever experienced. The first 2 days of our trip were spent trekking up Mount Fansipan, which is a first for me! Our third day was spent traveling around Sapa on a bike. Our guide, Mr. T, was very professional and he made sure that we enjoyed the tour safely. Our last days of the trip were spent on a cruise in Ha Long Bay, which we visited Sung Sot Cave and Ti Top Island. All our transportation and accommodation were covered, and the guides were amazing! Nghia was contactable before and during the whole trip, and she made sure we reached our destinations smoothly! Thank you, Nghia and Zonitrip will try my best to visit Vietnam again and hope to see you again!
