“Very great Fansipan mountain trek!”
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 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 dong) 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 8pm 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!

The total trek is around 11-12 hours at a very fast pace and should only be attempted in one day by very experienced trekkers or athletes. I recently completed a half ironman triathlon (1.9k swim, 90k ride, 21k run) and found this trek to be of similar challenge. My girlfriend would be described as fit. Regular gym, ability to run 5-10km however she was unable to complete it within one day. I would only recommend the one day trek if you could comfortably run ~20km or are otherwise very experienced in trekking (or are indifferent to suffering).
Otherwise it is an incredibly rewarding experience albeit challenging even over 2 days and provides some incredible views (if the clouds clear!)
Definitely the highlight of the trip, I just wish we were better informed so we could have chosen the 2 day trek and I could have shared the whole experience with my girlfriend.

I had a very good experience Fansipan mountain trek 2 days with Zonitrip. The guide is very interpersonal, he is caring, gives u lot of free time own ur own and you feel like conquer the mountain by yourself but he waits for you at hardcore/ fork road and dangerous area, support you when needed.
Miss Nghia is very nice too, she couldnt take me this tour but she called to check if everything OK and was always helpful.
I would recommend anyone i meet to this company.
