Fansipan Mountain reviews
The view at peak of the mountain was fascinating even though it was really cloudy the day I visited. Make sure to bundle up if you're visiting during "winter" because it was actually cold up there... more »
Words can not describe the amazing cable car ride up the mountain over two valleys. The 600 steps that await you are filled with Buddhist temples and shrines. Breathtaking views and places to sit... more »
Crowds and more crowds. Dont visit on weekends and holidays. Afternoons/evenings seem less crowded. Nice views if you get good weather. IMO good but not so special. Valley has better views.
It was a great experience that I had a chance to trek up to the great Fansipan mountain. It took me more than 8 hours to reach to the top. I started trekking since 5:30am. I enjoyed the pure nature so much. I went there in October, unfortunately it wasn’t a good weather for trekking at all. It was raining and foggy and unable to see blue sky.
