Today, I went up the Fansipan Mountain. I took the cable car, alternatively you can hike for three days. The cable car station is 10 minutes away from the city center and you can go there by bike or taxi. You can choose if you go by cable car and then walk 600 steps or if you take a a small train. I walked and without Nithin it is a little easier to pace myself because I don't have the feeling I need to prove something. I made a lot of new friends on the way up, mostly children and aunties. This is the first thing I did in Sapa after my arrival and I recommend it to everyone. As you can see it was a little cloudy but I was still able to take pictures 😀
