TT. Sa Pa, Sa Pa, Lao Cai , 333100

The Basics

As you ascend Mt. Fansipan—by mountain train and cable car, or on foot—take in views of the Hoang Lien Son mountain range and the terraced fields of Muong Hoa Valley. Near the top, you’ll find temples, shrines, and pagodas, and one of the largest bronze Buddha statues in the country. Purchase tickets for the cable car and mountain trains separately, or opt for a combo pass for extra savings. For a hassle-free experience, choose a tour that includes round-trip transportation from Sapa. Some multi-day guided treks include a ride on the cable car and round-trip transport from Hanoi.
