Mount Fansipan belongs to the Hoang Lien Son range, located in Lao Cai province, 3,143 m high, is the highest mountain in Indochina, is likened to the “roof of Indochina.”

To conquer the top of Fansipan, there are 3 ways: the road through Cat Cat village, Xin Chai village, and the road through O Qui Ho pass. Climbers often choose the way through Cat Cat village with a journey of 4 days and three nights.

Traveling to Fansipan mountain is very interesting. At the foot of the hill are native plants such as jackfruit, cardamom, and rice, followed by ancient forests with interlaced vines.
