Fansipan Mountains

Many tour companies operate tours that include trekking to the peak. In the video above we see a large group of people who have summited the demanding peak. The peak is the top of three countries; Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. There are different routes to summit this people and the five day trip comes highly recommended.

The peak is accessible year round, however the best time to tackle the climb is between October and December. In fact this is when most tourists book to climb the peak as rainfall is at the minimum during this time. The locals, however, prefer to make the ascent between the months of February and April as the temperatures are more forgiving during this time.
