Did this walk with my Dad. There are some differing opinions on which ones are the highest, but the above are the ones I did. Great time of year for it. Nice in the Sun but cold in the dark and wind.

Beautiful weather today for this walk. Ascended via waterfall gorge and descended South East Ridge. Really nice walk up the gorge, mostly over dry creek bed. Some nice views of main range, but the foliage prevents views from the summit.

After 2 weeks bed ridden with Dengue fever, this was hard work today. The weather was perfect and had a good crew with us. Great day.
Mt Fansipan (Phan Xi Pang) (Overseas)
16 Jul, 2012
Very Hard

2 days
The weather in Sapa this time of year is overcast and rainy. Started the walk after a sleepless night on the night train and my jeep transfer to the mountain was in fact a moped transfer. With two days the plan is to walk through camp 1 (2200m) and spend the night at camp 2 (2900m) and summit the next morning. However, my guide and i make good time and summit at 1530 after a 6hr climb. Then descend for 2 hrs and sleep at camp 2. Its a very rainy, stormy night and the provided sleeping bag is sub par. No sleep again. When the sun rises we eat breakfast then walk 4hrs down off the mountain. No view from the top due to cloud, but summits aren't just about the view are they?
Mt Barney - East Peak - Up South-East - Down South (Mt Barney National Park)
20 Jun, 2012
Very Hard

10 hrs
Walked out of camp at Mount Barney Lodge at 7:15am. Starting at the lodge added an extra half k each way. Fine on the way in, on the way home...not so much. Very hard and exposed walk/climb. The exposure in places was far greater than expected and i was glad to be facing the rock, unable to see what was behind me. Advice, if you suffer vertigo, proabably take south ridge. Steep climbing to false summits can be disheartening, but adds to the challenge. Very glad the rock was dry and would probably throw in 10m of rope for the next ascent. Was lucky enough to have 2m of prussik cord in my pack (just long enough) and used it on a slippery boulder scramble. The descent on the south ridge was much easier and now have plans for a camp in rum jungle and an ascent of the west peak. Great view, challenging walk.
Yellowpinch Summit (Mt Barney National Park)

Nice little leg stretcher. Went over the top and down the north side to the creek. Then rock hopped downstream and found a great swimming hole. Excited via a farm back on to the yellowpinch road.

Made an adventure out of this walk. Started with the Python rock track and back then out to Moran falls lookout and over the creek to the western lookout. then up the hill to balancing rock and beyond to the castle rocks. Retuned along the same route and took the old trail along the ridge and acsended to moonlight crag. From here follw the ridge again via an old trail to orchid grotto and Lyrebird lookout. This is where the walk gets really spectacular and a little tricky. Follow the tags through thick forrest for ? Kms. Expect to get lost and have to retrace to find the trail. Eventually ending up on the border track 700m South of the O'reily's guest house. Comes out around 14 or 15K's. I think. Great day.

Excellent walk. The rain made it a little more interesting and very leechy. Some spectacular waterfalls and caves. Added on the twin falls and was very glad I did. The tracks leading behind the waterfalls are great and refreshing. Took around four and a half hours at a decent pace.

Did the Northern Summit. Steady incline up scree track, through overgrown tracks that flatten out to a false summit with camp spot. Then up again to the North summit with views of the dam and the hills to the North.
Cronan Creek Falls Track (Mt Barney National Park)

Did this walk with walkinghawk. Was good to stretch the legs but didn't offer any challenges other than a few creek crossings and one large incline. Follows a fire trail to a dead end. I have heard that some waterfalls can be accessed, but the only one we could potentially get to was inaccessible. Maybe if we had a rope...
