Trip Description & Day-by-day Itinerary
The Fansipan Trekking Tour 3 days starts from Sapa, taking you to Mt Fansipan, the summit of Indochina. This is one of our hard treks we customize for experienced hikers.
DAY 1: SAPA -> FANSIPAN MOUNTAIN
Group meeting for regional information and tour briefing at 08.30am. Leaving Sapa at 09.00 for a road transfer for 16 km to Tram Ton. Enjoy some stops along the way for great view of Fansipan. Start trekking from Tram Ton at the height of 1957m along a trail for almost the whole morning through rain forest up and down hill to 2,200m peak. Lunch break for an hour. Afternoon trek gets tougher as the trail winds its way on steep mountain sides through bamboo forest. The plantation changes a lot as the trail reaches to higher elevation. Arrive to the camp-site at 2,800m peak in late afternoon. Relax and free to explore the wild surrounding.
DAY 2: MT FANSIPAN CLIMBING

The trek gets though bamboo forest and flat land of grass for an hour and then getting up very steep mountain side for nearly 1,5 hour to reach to the Peak! Congratulation! You have conquered the roof on Indo-China at the height of 3143m. In a nice day, great view of a vast region westwards to Lai Chau, eastwards to Lao Cai…even further to China and Dien Bien Phu are all in your sight and under your feet.
The way back is easier and it takes only 1,5 hour back to the 2,800m camp-site for lunch. Leaving the campsite at 2.00 pm along the same trail back for 3 hours and arrive at the 2,200m camp-site at about 5.00 pm. Relax and free to explore the wild surrounding nature.
