Trekking to the Top or Cable Car If you want to be on top of Fansipan, you can do it in two ways. The first is traditional trekking, and the second is a modern cable car. Cable car allows almost all unlimited entry to Fansipan. This is an option for both those, who have limited time, for the lazy tourists and for the disabled to a lesser or greater extent. If someone decides to trek, he should prepare for two days of hiking in the mountains. The companies organizing the expeditions have two and three-day trekking in their offer. The hardships of the hike are compensated by the extraordinary panorama of the mountains, the view of the surrounding three-thousanders and the unusual surroundings. Of course, it all depends on the weather, the type of clouds and the lack of fog. However, the view is undoubtedly breathtaking.
