How many porters for the trek to Fansipan

Posted in Blog

A common question is that how many H’mong porters to assist you in the tour to Fansipan Mount.

The Answer from Sapa Travel is that the ratio should be 1:2 for porters/passengers. If your group is 2 pax, you need one porter to carry the food. If you are 10 trekkers, we will have 5 H’mong porters to help you to trek to the peak.

Don’t ask for more porters to carry to luggage. Just bring with you the light backpack.

The Hmong are a proud people and utilising them in a way you are proposing is something we are not aligned to as an organisation that wants to promote social equality and positive cultural exchanges.
