Corners for exploration

Hoang Lien Son’s Fansipan and Lung Cung (2,918m), Pu Luong (2,985m) is three peaks dominating Sapa, a small town perched high in the mountains that famous for its beautiful terraces and the presence of ethnic minorities. They are imposing and rocky. There are inaccessible parts, but that which can be reached is often spectacularly beautiful. Amateurs can scale all three peaks above, but it’s a grueling three-day trek to Fansipan’s summit for example, and all requiring high levels of fitness and plenty of stamina.
