With the altitude of 3,143m, Fansipan Mount in Hoang Lien Son Mountain Range is the highest mount in Indochina and known as the “Roof of Indochina”. Conquering Fansipan Peak is always a longing for those who love nature and exploring new things. But the journey to Fansipan Peak is extremely arduous and requires health and endurance.

Since 2 February 2016 with the appearance of Fansipan cable car, visitors only take 30 minutes to reach the “Roof of Indochina”, instead of 2 days and 1 night as before.

Being the three-rope cable car with the length of 6,292.5m, the Fansipan cable car system consists of 33 cabins with a capacity of 2,000 people per hour. Each cabin can carry from 30 to 35 people. This cable car system is able to withstand the strong winds and severe weather conditions to ensure obsolutely safety for visitors.

The auxiliary works such as departure station, terminal station, restaurant, souvenir shop, etc are elaborately designed with architectural features and decorative details inspired from brocade patterns of Northwest ethnic people. All create the architectural complex in harmony combination with nature.

From Sa Pa Town, according to National Road 4D about 2.5km, visitors arrive in Sa Pa Cable Car Station. Experience of cable car brings visitors unforgotten feelings. From cabin, visitors can see the poetic town of Sa Pa with Western style houses hidden under clouds.

Putting in operation of Fansipan cable car makes the dream of conquering the “Roof of Indochina” of numerous visitors come true at the same time contributes to tourism development of Sapa Town and also Lao Cai Province.
