At 3,143 meters, Fansipan is the highest mountain in Vietnam and Indochina, hence it’s known as “the Roof of Indochina”. Although the summit can be reached by cable car since 2016, nothing compares to the thrill of walking through the forest, making your way to the top. On your way to the summit, you will enjoy wonderful views of northern Vietnam and its terraced fields. Join us in this adventure and discover the best of Sapa!
