Newly constructed in 2016, the long cable car ride to Fansipan mountain will be one of the most exciting travel experience you have in your lifetime. Start your trip at Sapa Hill Station where you will take a classical train ride along the mysterious mountain...More

Modern beautiful tram ride to the peak. Amazing huge complex structures of pagodas, etc. linked by extensive stairs ways and platforms. We were there on a very clear day, above the clouds in the valley. Felt magical.

it's really unsafe to walk from the car cable to Cat Cat village, and to my line of memory, it's not only 400m.
