Conquering to the top of Mt. Fansipan is always the most wanted expedition for climbers to Indochina area. This adventure is based on a longer trail in comparison to the rout from Heaven gate. The hardship is somehow not higher while you have more time to enjoy the natural pureness as well as your victory of footing on the Indochina’s roof. Our trek to the top of Mt. Fansipan is challenging and fully supported on each single step by our guides, porters and cooks with local knowledge and understanding of the different hill-tribe cultures on the way.
