Fansipan is the highest peak in Vietnam and it is considered the rooftop of Indochina peninsula. people should go to Fansipan at least once in their lives as a way to memorize the youth and challenge yourself. Recent years, there is a cable cap route built, it is easier for tourists to put the footprint on this mount. Standing on Fansipan mount, you will feel like lost in the fairyland with many white clouds surround you, and everything under you seems so small. It is better to conquer Fansipan in the sunny day because the vision is much clearer.
