To the Roof of Indochina

Embark on an adventure with a trek up Mt. Fansipan, the Roof of Indochina! Experience the breathtaking beauty of the Hoang Lien Son Mountain range in Vietnam. Traverse dense forests and rocky terrains, immersing yourself in nature’s wonders. Our 2-day/1-night trek commences at 1900m above sea level, as night falls, rest at the base camp located at an elevation of 2800m.

The highlight of the trip is the trek to the majestic summit for the chance to witness the stunning sunrise.

Before reaching the summit, you will encounter a serene garden complex adorned with stone paths, ancient Azalea trees, and 18 meticulously sculpted bronze statues. These sculptures guide your way to a celestial Buddha statue, towering 20m on the mountainside—the largest of its kind in the country. Surrounding gardens and pagodas create a tranquil atmosphere, offering a perfect place to pause and savour the fresh mountain air. Ascending the final stretch involves climbing a series of stairs that lead to the highest point on Mt. Fansipan. The cloud formations at the summit constantly shift, unveiling new shapes and scenes in a mesmerizing dance where the earth meets the sky.

Are you ready to elevate your sense of adventure and stand atop the majestic Mt. Fansipan? This is a confirmed trip, and will be led by Joanne Soo.
