Trip Description & Day-by-day Itinerary
Fansipan One Day Climb is one of our private, guided tour that we design for hardcore trekkers who are short on time but not on energy.
With an early start time of 6.30am-7.30am, you will be met up with our local team – guide and driver. You are then transferred by car 15km from Sapa, to arrive at the Fansipan Park Ranger’s Station at a height of 2,000m, ready to begin the climb.
The mountain’s ecosystem is rich, with 2,024 floral varieties and 327 faunal species. The challenging ascent and decent will take around 7-8 hours. Throughout, you hike through stunning primary deciduous and evergreen forests, follow crystal clear mountain streams, and brave windswept ridges.
Short breaks along the way will allow you to take in the various scenic views that this climb has to offer. Forest types change with increasing altitude. Around the summit, dwarf bamboo is all that can survive.
You arrive at the 3,143m summit around midday, and celebrate this victory with a picnic lunch, sitting high above the hills with views of this stunning mountainous landscape. The descent, will take around 3-4 hours (depending on individual fitness levels).
You arrive back at the start point – Park Ranger’s Station with the car waiting for you and are taken back to Sapa town. Trip ends.
