The cablecar takes about 25 minutes, awesome view! Not many tourists when we were there. The trip is ofcourse best if it's good weather but a little cloudy is ok, you will still enjoy the view. It's several steps to the top and they are still building a lot...

Enjoyed the trek thoroughly but the view isn't splendid in winter time. Very misty and unclear view of the mountains from the top during winter.

We took the cable car over to the mountain, then hiked about 30 - 40 minutes up the steps at the Fansipan Legend Summit. It was great, but there is a lot of construction going on. Dress warm, and make sure you give yourself time to hike. The elevation makes it necessary to hike up slow. The photos we got... More

It costs 600 000 VND and it was a spur of the moment decision. But my oh my, what a great time we had! Totally worth every dong. The cable car ride kick-starts the fun. Great views of the valley and once on top, it was just exhilarating to breathe in the fresh mountain air and feel the crisp cold... More

Enjoyed our trekking trip that was arranged through MY BEAUTIFUL SAPA website few days ago. We got offer for two private train cabins(4 beds each) even we have 7 people. Everything went smoothly and safely as promised( transfer, train, meals, tour guide) and we definitely recommended for trekking overnight trip on mountain.

Took the cable car up the mountain for about 600k dong per pax. A bit pricey, but the cable car stations were very modern and luxurious (clean toilets ^^). Once u reach the top of the mountain, its still a good 20 min climb before reaching the peak. The views from the mountain are nice, but unfortunately spoilt but a... More

Loved the cable car but staff at the top need to clean the area if they want to keep attracting people. The restaurant area was in great need of tables being cleared and cleaned in the hour i was there
