Itinerary at a glance
As Southeast Asia’s highest peak, Mt. Fansipan (3,143 m) provides the perfect backdrop for some great trekking routes. This trek with outdoor camping offers all of the challenges and rewards of any hike. Upon reaching the summit you can be one of the few who have reached up and touched the clouds, marking the roof of Indochina.
“Trek Fansipan by foot and Go down by Cable Car” is a new experience to see Mt. Fansipan in an other light from above. It also saves times in descent after the long trek in order explore more of Sapa.
Around 8:30 am, after we pick-up you at you hotel, train station or bus station, we will start the trekking trip. You will be transferred by car to Tram Ton Gate, the highest peak of roads on O Quy Ho Pass – one of the four greatest passes in Vietnam. From there you can see Mt. Fansipan, the highest peak of the Indochina mountains. You can enjoy the stunning views here for a moment. The trek will be relatively easy until lunchtime. After a couple of hours of hiking, you will have a break at a nice spot in the forest and enjoy a good lunch.
With new energy you start ascending as well as descending towards the campsite. En route you have many opportunities to enjoy the magnificent views of the Sapa area and the beautiful landscape of Lai Chau province. You will have the chance to climb by ladders, by rope, through the jungle and forest, and deep stone. Breathe deeply and take in the fresh air of the natural landscape.
You will arrive at the camp site at 2800m ASL in the late afternoon. Now it is time to relax and enjoy a well prepared dinner.
We could OFFER FREE the transportation from Lao Cai station to Sapa (If you choose the train from Hanoi- Lao Cai).
Trekking: 5 hrs/ascend 2,800 m from 1,900 m
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
After having breakfast, you climb to the top, where you can celebrate your victory. From there, you can enjoy the best view the mountain has to offer. You will climb from base camp 2800m to the top 3140m in around 3 hrs. This consists of going up and down via deep mountains, the bamboo forest, the jungle and huge stone. This will take all the muscles in your body, so get ready!
On the top of Fansipan
After reaching the top, you will go down via Hoang Lien Cable car station and come back to Sapa – where you can celebrate your achievement and relax.

“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 organised 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 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 8pm and Nghia was waiting for us with her husband to dropped 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 very good experience mountain climbing thanks to this company. 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.
