  • Fantastic view in the cable car. You can take a finacular train up to the peak after you reach the cable car station on fansipan. But this finacular can only go up, you have to walk down 600 steps staircase by yourself. It is a very big area and need at least 3 hours to spend here. The peak is very strong wind and only 6 degrees Celsius on March
  • Best view from the TOP of Fansipan! remember to wear thick clothing because very cold up there.
  • Service in North of Vietnam is generally not good. Its compulsory to book a tour package to trek to this mount. The cost is roundly 50-60$ for 2D1N trip, 8h up and 4-5h down. It didnt start on time, the dishes were so so. The worthiest thing were the view on the trekking way was so spectacular. I loved the time here much.
  • Breathtaking experience. It's a must visit if you're in Sapa.
  • Beautiful views but horribly over crowded and commercialised place
