Fansipan trek “Sin Chai route”

(3 days 4 nights - tour code FSP03)

At 3,143 meters Mt. Fansipan is Vietnam’s highest mountain. It is only 9 km from Sapa town but it takes at least three days to get to the peak and back. The top is accessible year-round to anybody who is in good shape. As there are no mountain huts on the way, we will be camping. Our porters carry the equipment and food. No ropes or technical climbing skills are needed, just endurance and plenty of energy. The terrain is rugged, wet and often cold.
