Summit Fansipan in 1 day with local expert guide!
This one-day trek up Fansipan, Indochina's highest peak, is truly a choose-your-own-adventure with your local, experienced guide setting the pace just for you. Because it's a private trip you can do it at your own pace. You can also opt to climb down, or treat yourself to a relaxing cable car glide back down!What to expect:Leave while the birds are still sleeping: An early start (like 5:30am!) means fewer crowds and cooler temperatures as you set off.A vertical world: Think dense forest, clambering over boulders, and conquering ladders as you make your way up to the peak.Lunch with a view: Refuel amidst spectacular mountain scenery.The sweet reward: Conquer the 3,143-meter summit with its panoramic views (if it's not foggy!).Important tips:This trek is tough! You'll need a high level of fitness to conquer Fansipan in a single day
