All reviews cable car base camp highest mountain highest peak warm clothes big buddha sleeping bag day hike highest point breathtaking views train tickets next morning sapa town visiting sapa two days local guide trekking tour
Sadly we came to Sapa seemingly at the wrong time of year. Extremely misty at the top and for most of the cable car trip, we couldn’t see much at all. But it did add a new perspective. We were fortunate to see the show...More
Before coming to Sapa, this was one of the places we want to visit. On the last day of our trip, we went up to visit this peak. It was definitely worth it. It was easy to train station as we stayed at the Sofitel...More
Nice experience. but do not expect to see the view it is mostly very foggy .
cabel car ride is very nice. beautiful view on the way up/down.
Be aware of the need to purchase two tickets. One for each cable car.
We took our time climbing the 600 or so steps to reach the top after getting off the cable car. Took our chances with the weather as clouds rolling in and out all day. We went up about 1:30 in the afternoon after it had...More
Cable ride is the best part of the trip. A 25 minute cable ride, followed by a train to the top. A lot of monument and view awaits you at the top. Don't forget to buy a combination of train and cable ride ticket together....More
We booked the full day tour from Sapa and back and it was just amazing! Although the weather was cloudy it was like climbing a real mountain and walking in the clouds. There is so much to see on the entire site and each new...More
Don’t miss this place.
You can either climb the whole way (about 2 days, with a guide) or drive to the bottom of the cable car.
On the way up you get incredible views of the rice fields below (in the SaPa area they harvest...More
The cable car ride is great fun and provides a stunning view of the landscape. The mountaintop is a wonderful place to enjoy the gorgeous scenery. Somewhat pricey and quite a lot of stairs to climb, but it is worth it. Don't you miss this!
Our visit to fansipan mountain was amazing. We had seen many photos of the clear, spectacular views online so at first, we were disappointed when the majority of the mountain was covered with fog and clouds. Despite that, the trip up the cable cart was...More

You can get tickets at the counter. Other stores and hotels may offer to sell them to you st cheaper rate which I imagine is because they get the “local” discount. I have read reviews that these will then get denied at entry... More

We just tried to go it alone but our taxi dropped us off right outside the ranger station, who wouldn't let us go without a guide! He charged us 1million VND each for passes and insurance and the guide. We just had to wait... More
We just tried to go it alone but our taxi dropped us off right outside the ranger station, who wouldn't let us go without a guide! He charged us 1million VND each for passes and insurance and the guide. We just had to wait half an hour for our guide to get there, but I was pretty glad we had a guide by the time we got up there! It is a hard hike with all sorts of different terrain (how he did it in flip flops I do not know!) But we got up there in 4 hours thanks to him setting the pace, then got the cable car down and a taxi back to Sapa from the cable car station. There was no view at all at the top in the clouds, but the cable car had amazing views.
