Climbing Fansipan

Don't forget your tent

What we say: 3.5 stars

Fansipan is Vietnam's tallest mountain and more than a few tackle its summit but at an altitude of 3,143 metres, climbing Mount Fansipan is no mean feat and should be organised through a tour agent.

Treks are usually overnight, or even over three days, with accommodation in tents or bamboo huts located at just over 2,200 metres. Although the peak is below the lie of winter snows, it will get cold.

Most groups require at least two passengers and charge $70+ per person for a two-day trek. One-day treks are available if you have the fitness for it.
