FANSIPAN CLIMBS

Trip code: VNFCB6

At 3,143 metres Mt. Fansipan is Vietnams 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.
