Fansipan Trekking for Singaporean students
The travel package for Singaporean students to Trek Fansipan. It is suitable for the travelers with low budget and start from Singapore. Our package includes the international flights from/ to Singapore with Vietnam Airlines
Fansipan Mountain is located 9km south-west of Sapa Town let in the Hoang Lien Mountain Range. It has been branded as “the Roof of Indochina” at the height of 3,143m. Mount Fansipan has been approved as one of the very few eco-tourist spots of Vietnam, with about 2,024 floral varieties and 327 faunal species. The topography of Fansipan is varied. Muong Hoa Valley, at the lowest altitude (950-1,000m), is created by a narrow strip of land at the base on the east side of the mountain.
Geologists say the Hoang Lien Mountain Range, with Fansipan as its highest peak, did not emerge in the mountainous North West of Vietnam until the neozoic period (circ. 100 million years ago). Fansipan, a rough pronunciation of the local name “Hua Xi Pan” means “the tottery giant rock”. The French came to Vietnam and in 1905 planted a landmark telling Fansipan’s height of 3,143m… Very few people climbed to the top of Fansipan at the time. Then came the long years of war and Fansipan was left deserted for hunting and savaging. The trail blazed by the French was quickly overgrown by the underbrush.
The summit of Fansipan is accessible all year round, but the best time to make the ascent is from mid-October to mid-November, and again in March. Kindly note that this is a tough trek… suggested to be done after you have climbed mountains like Kinabalu and/ or Rinjani.
