Best time to trek Fansipan

Posted in Blog

Trekking up to the top of the highest mount to hug that triangle metal piece saying “Fansipan 3,143m” has become a long time tradition among young trekker. And obviously, Fansipan is also a kind of tourist attraction since it is very close to Sapa, a famous destination for tourists in the North of Vietnam, and a few adventurous and athletic travelers love to combine their Sapa trip with this Fansipan Mount trekking.

Best time to do this whole trekking thing is April and May when the weather is good, not cold (and especially) not rainy, and you will also have a clear view of the beautiful valley with flowers in bloom.

A common question from the trekker is that how is the campsite or the tent when overnight in Fansipan

This is the camp at the height of 2,800m where the trekkers have dinner and spend an oh-so-cold night after 6.5 hours of climbing. It is quite dirty, especially on a rainy day

Actually the view from the camp will be very nice if it is not rainy or too foggy. And in fact in dry weather you can even do camp fire here.

Candle-lit dinner. Of course there is no electricity at the height of 2,800m!
