The trip combines cultural investigation and adventourous trekking to Sapa and its surround destinations. We head to the train station and catch a night train to Sapa. Our first day is to explore the town by visiting the local markets, small and hilly streets to discover unique cultures and lifestyles of ethnic minority groups. We take a light trek to Ham Rong Mountain located just in the town to warm up for the upcoming long trek. In the next day, we start our journey by going to the Silver Waterfall and Tram Ton Pass often called the Heaven Gate. We spend some time enjoying marvelous nature and then start the strenuous trek to the peak of Mt Fansipan. After roughly 6 hours through the primitive rain jungles, many small streams and bamboo forests, we will reach a height of 2200m. At this point, make tents and prepare for dinner before spending the first night at this campsite. In the next day, we will continue trekking to the summit of the mountain. At about 12:00 AM we will reach the top. We have picnic lunch and enjoy the feeling of a hero after conquering the Mountain. Take a good photo of the group that lasts for a lifetime before we climb down.
