  • Crowds and more crowds. Dont visit on weekends and holidays. Afternoons/evenings seem less crowded. Nice views if you get good weather. IMO good but not so special. Valley has better views.
  • It was a great experience that I had a chance to trek up to the great Fansipan mountain. It took me more than 8 hours to reach to the top. I started trekking since 5:30am. I enjoyed the pure nature so much. I went there in October, unfortunately it wasn’t a good weather for trekking at all. It was raining and foggy and unable to see blue sky.
