Trekking Mountain Fansipan in 5 days
Tucked high in Vietnam’s remote northern mountains, close to the Chinese border, the former French military outpost of Sapa offers some of Vietnam’s most colorful experiences. Admire the scenic beauty of highlands and green valleys in your 5-days trekking tour to Mount Fansipan Vietnam.
Vietnam’s highest peak, the 3,143-metre Mount Fansipan, looms over the surrounding valleys, which feature terraced rice paddies and blazing green fields divided by fast-flowing sparkling silvery streams. Gaze at the layers upon layers of green ridges fading into the distance, edged by sharp, rocky peaks. The region is a home to several ethnic minority groups, all wearing their traditional and colorful attire. Mt. Fansipan and its surrounding natural luxury is the pride of Sapa town. Trek through the lush greeneries, vibrant markets to meet the locals in distant secluded villages cuddling on mountain tops.
