Full description
Day 1: Sapa – Tram Ton – 2200 meters - 2800 meters

You will be welcomed at the meeting point at 7:00 AM for a hot shower and to stow your large luggage. You will have some time to relax and discover Sa Pa Town by yourself before you begin your trek. At 9:00 AM, the driver will take you to the Tram Ton pass, the starting point for the ascent of Mount Fansipan. Get to know your baggage porter from the Black Mong people, who will carry the food and your sleeping bag up the mountain.

Conquer the highest mountain in Vietnam with an altitude of 3143 meters. You will pass through forests of pine and bamboo and along different streams in a cool climate. Besides the hiking, this is also a good opportunity for you to learn from your tour guide about the indigenous people of Sa Pa, such as the Black Mong, Red Dzao and Dzay. They are all minority groups living in the area. Around noon, you will reach 2200 meters, where you can enjoy a picnic lunch prepared by the tour guide and porter. After a rest, you will continue the trek to your sleeping point at 2800 meters, which you will reach around 4.00 PM. There will be time to rest or explore the surroundings of your tent, while your tour guide and porter prepare dinner for you. Enjoy dinner at 6:30 PM and take advantage of an early night's rest.

Day 2: 2800 – Summit – 2800 meters – Tram Ton – Sa Pa.

Enjoy an early breakfast at 5:00 AM with a cup of hot tea or coffee, before continuing the trek through the bamboo forest and approaching the top of the mountain, where the vegetation becomes less and less. At 7:30 AM, you will have arrived at the summit. Congratulations, you are at the top of the mountain and can marvel at the sunrise and experience the great feeling of standing on the highest peak in Vietnam. You will be rewarded with great views over the valleys of Sa Pa and Lai Chai Province. You can even see the mountains in Yunan Province in China. Begin your descend from the top around 8:00 AM and enjoy a picnic lunch on the way down to the Tram Ton.
