Get back to nature and enjoy the wild mountain without rushing.
Day 1: Sapa (L, D)
We begin this tour at a practical time of 9.00am. After meeting both your guide and driver, we are transferred by car, a short distance of 15km to begin the start of the climb to Fansipan Mountain. We start the climb at a height of 2000m. Throughout this climb, we can observe and learn about the local cardamom trees, and the uses they have for this local area. Local birds can also be seen throughout this walk, with seasons varying, and the time of year you visit. As we trek up to the height of 2200m, we relax with a picnic lunch. We then keep on trekking up to the height of 2800m, taking in the spectacular views along the way. After setting up camp for the night, dinner is cooked on the campfire. Ready to unwind from the day, you will find yourself sleeping soundly, while nestled in amongst this rugged beauty that the countryside has to offer.
Day 2: Very top of Fanxipan (B, L, D)
With an early rise of 6.30-7.00am, we have breakfast together before we undertake the next ascent to the very top of Fanxipan Mountain. Around 10.00-10.30am, we can celebrate the victorious achievement as we arrive at the very top of Fanxipan Mountain (3143m above sea level). Take some time out, as you absorb the combination of the fresh crisp air, and beautiful views while overlooking Sapa town, admiring its thick green forestry landscape. (Please Note: Sapa is known to be an area consisting of four seasons in one day, therefore the weather can change quite rapidly, altering from heavy mist and fog to warm sunny days. Hence, we cannot guarantee clear views from the top of this mountain. ) After enjoying the remarkable views, we commence the descent to 2800m and enjoy a picnic lunch around 1.30pm. We then trek on back down to 2,200m and set up our camp for the night. Enjoy a warming dinner as we sit around the campfire cooking together, and drift off into a well-earned sleep after an eventful day.
Day 3: Sin Chai- foot of Fansipan (B, L)
Today we can enjoy a well-deserved lye-in, rising around 7.30am for a shared breakfast. As this is the last day of tour, we walk at a gentle pace down to Sin Chai, a Black H’mong village situated at the foot of Mount Fansipan. Here we meet with our driver are transferred by car back to Sapa town. We complete the tour with a refreshing herbal medicine bath and foot massage.
