Mount Fansipan or `` Khyasipan '', translated means `` trembling giant mountain. '' The mountain reaches a height of 3,143 meters.
In 1905, the French came to Vietnam and installed a mark on the top of the mountain, calling Fansipan the `` Roof of Indochina. ''
At that time, few could conquer the top of the mountain. Subsequently, during the wars, Mount Fansipan became a fairly desolate area for grazing and hunting. The road leading to the summit, created by the French, was overgrown pretty quickly.
In 1991, the military man Nguyen Thien Hung, returning to his hometown, decided to conquer Mount Fansipan. He managed to do this only on the 13th attempt, accompanied by a boy from the Hmong people. The boy, when climbing the mountain, was guided by the tracks of mountain geese. This climb was not made by Hung for the purpose of fame, the passionate desire to conquer the peak of Fansipan had haunted him for many years.
Later, a new excursion was organized by the Sapa Travel Agency for those who want to test their endurance. Climbing to the top is possible at any time of the year, but the best time is March and the period from October to November.
Most often, foreigners organize a trip to Fansipan from November to December, as heavy rains are the least at this time likely. However, the Vietnamese themselves prefer to conquer the summit from February to March, at which time violets, rhododendron, orchids and aglay begin to bloom. The climb to the summit usually takes six to seven days.
