Fansipan, Vietnam’s tallest mountain, towers above Hoang Lien National Park.

At 3,143 meters tall, Fansipan is the focal point of the 280km Hoang Lien Son mountain range.

It sits 9km southwest of the famous tourist town of Sa Pa, and serves as a border between Lao Cai and Lai Chau Provinces Vietnam’s northwest region.

Fansipan, dubbed the 'Roof of Indochina,' is also the highest mountain on the Indonchina Peninsula, which includes Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.

The mountain fascinates visitors with its majestic natural landscapes and has long served as a worthy challenge for adventure seekers.

Visitors can opt to reach the top of Fansipan by cable car or by hiking from the Hoang Lien National Park.
