Full description
Day 1: Sapa – Tram Ton – 2200 meters - 2800 meters You will be welcomed at the meeting point at 7:00 AM for a hot shower and to store your large luggage. You will have some time to relax and discover Sa Pa Town by yourself before you begin your trek. At 9:00 AM, the driver will take you to the Tram Ton pass, the starting point for the ascent of Mount Fansipan. Get to know your baggage porter from the Black Mong people, who will carry the food and your sleeping bag up the mountain. Conquer the highest mountain in Vietnam with an altitude of 3143 meters. You will pass through forests of pine and bamboo and along different streams in a cool climate. Besides the hiking, this is also a good opportunity for you to learn from your tour guide about the indigenous people of Sa Pa, such as the Black Mong, Red Dzao and Dzay. They are all minority groups living in the area. Around noon, you will reach 2200 meters, where you can enjoy a picnic lunch prepared by the tour guide and porter. After a rest, you will continue the trek to your sleeping point at 2800 meters, which you will reach around 4.00 PM. There will be time to rest or explore the surroundings of your tent, while your tour guide and porter prepare dinner for you. Enjoy dinner at 6:30 PM and take advantage of an early night's rest. Day 2: 2800 – Summit – 2800 meters – Tram Ton – Sa Pa. Enjoy an early breakfast at 5:00 AM with a cup of hot tea or coffee, before continuing the trek through the bamboo forest and approaching the top of the mountain, where the vegetation becomes less and less. At 7:30 AM, you will have arrived at the summit. Congratulations, you are at the top of the mountain and can marvel at the sunrise and experience the great feeling of standing on the highest peak in Vietnam. You will be rewarded with great views over the valleys of Sa Pa and Lai Chai Province. You can even see the mountains in Yunan Province in China. Begin your descend from the top around 8:00 AM and enjoy a picnic lunch on the way down to the Tram Ton. Between 3:30 and 4:30 PM you will arrive in Tram Ton, where a car will be waiting to take you back to Sa Pa.

- no one has called us and even didn't try the day before the trip. The nomad trails refused to show us outcoming calls to prove that. - no one has met us at a bus/train station. They refer to the reason that we haven't provided them "where and when" info during the reservation, HOWEVER - they didn't contact us to check this, they did nothing - today (21 Dec 2019) nobody came for this tour. It's just 2 of us. So it means that the tour hasn't been starting at all because of 0 people. We were on time at their office to inform them that we requested a cancellation and refund. - it says on the website that the company will pick up us at a bus/train station and we will be taken To Sa Pa - which means that they have to manage this. - the email from the hosting company (apparently the nomad trails) we received at the day of the trip 10 min before it starts!

We are students, we were with a young Mongolian guide TONG community instead of having a guide francophone as agreed in the price. We were a group of 4 where the other two were sportier than us. The guide has drawn his way with regulars without waiting for us, in the end we had no right to explanations since we were lagging (sorry not to trek every day!). This trek is made for the hustlers with a fairly good physical conditions (crossed ladders, risk passages ...). we had most of the time guess the way since the guide was not waiting for us. The evening was nice around the meals made by the locals, THINK YOU COVER IT'S VERY COLD NIGHT.The guide pressed us once at the top only 10min to enjoy the view We went down in funicular, very nice (at your expense 25 €), the amazing view of rice fields! We saw the sunrise because left at 3am. MAGNIFICENT !
