A breathtaking experience awaits at the top of Mount Fansipan, the highest peak in Vietnamu.

It used to take travelers two days of hard trekking to reach the summit. Now, you can reach the ‘Roof of Indochina’ in just 15 minutes.

Jaw-dropping views of swirling clouds and forested slopes from the top of Fansipan make this adventure a must-do on any Sapa itinerary.

September to March is a good time for mountain climbing here. However, it would be great if one can make the conquest at the end of February when the fllowers on the mountain blossom.

Blooming flowers in the mist

When spring comes, the flowers bloom on Fansipan mountain, stretching from the cable car station to the peak of the mountain. The highlight is the bright pink of peach blossoms, and the fragile cherry blossoms covering a large area.

Tourists can witness the gorgeous flowers alongside the road under the sun, then the scene becomes dreamy behind a thin layer of mist in one day. This creates a fairytale spot that attracts many visitors and photographers alike.

Coming here, you can see the gorgeous rose hill, and the large cauliflower fields paint a dreamy yellow color across the mountain.

This season, the Alzea flowers are blooming, creating fairytale scenery from the cable car looking down. With each step, you will feel like you are walking in a fairyland hidden behind the clouds that only exist in children’s books.

Every spring, tourists, and Buddhists take a trip to Fansipan mountain to visit the sacred pagodas built on the peak, then participate in several annual festivals.

Fansipan has acquired a spiritual dimension that draws thousands of tourists to come here to wish for luck, peace, blessings, and prosperity as they breathe in the tranquility of this place.

The spiritual journey starts from Bich Van Thien Tu temple, entered through the Quan Van Dac Lo gate after getting off the cable car.

This temple, which has a main central section flanked by two smaller ones on either side, has spacious courtyards where the devout offer incense and luxuriate in the fresh air and view of the majestic Hoang Lien Son Mountain nestling in the clouds.

An aerial view of part of the complex shows the way leading down from one of the temples in the complex with a multi-storied tower, a feature found in several pagodas across the country, to the statue of the female Bodhisattva, the Goddess of Compassion.
