Introduction
The Fansipan mountain, also known as 'The Rooftop of Indochina', is the perfect challenge for visitors who like actively exploring. It's located in the Lao Cai province, the northwest of Vietnam, and popular among ecotourists, photographers and travellers trying to escape the overcrowded standard touristic spots.

They say it's one of the most fascinating spots in the north, it’s your task to find out!

The Fansipan Mountain arose 100 million years ago out of the platonic depths in the area which these days is called the Lao Cai provence. As you climb you way up, the changing landscapes make you doubt if you're still on this planet. The flora and fauna create a unique atmosphere, and evolve every day, like the have been doing for a long time. Rise above the clouds as you reach the rooftop of Indochina, we'll promise that you'll love the view.

Then Sapa! With our "Real Sapa Experience", from the lush terraced rice paddies to the rustic charm of the native dwellings, Sapa is a place you’re sure to fall in love with! Many diverse groups like the Dzay, Dzao, Tay, Xa Pho or Hmong populate this richly cultural northern territory. You’ll sample their unique delights as you pass through each village, trek 2 days and overnight with the local Hmong minority in an homestay, enjoy cooking class & 30 min herbal foot massage. .
