Lai Chau, province of high mountains

The province of Lai Chau is very mountainous and offers a superb steep relief that you will have the opportunity to appreciate when you cross this province to go to the famous Sapa health resort. Lai Chau province is home to some of the highest peaks in Vietnam including the two most important ones: Fansipan and Phu Si Lung. With its 3143 meters, Fansipan is the highest peak in Vietnam but is also the roof of Indochina. You can reach its summit during a demanding hike of several days from Sapa or you can go there by cable car, always departing from Sapa. Phu Si Lung is the second highest peak in the country at 3,076 metres. A very sporty hike allows you to reach its summit.
