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

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

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

The cable car will reach the top about 3,100m above sea level. So if you're heading to the monument, you still need to take the steps up.
