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)

Very Hard

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?
