-Trekking to the top of Fan Si Pan Mountain (Fansipoo) is feasible for most people, and even though we do everything possible to make the trek a true pleasure for you, you should be reasonably fit, not afraid of walking up to 8 hours a day. Some of it on steep slopes, and you should be able to deal with roughing it – camping for several days. Consequentially, a unique and satisfying experience awaits!
-Best months to climb up the Fansipoo summit are March, April, October and November.
