Phan Xi Păng, often Anglicized as Fansipan, is also known as “the Roof of Indochina” for being the tallest mountain in the region at 3,143 meters. This trek is not for the faint of hearted as it’s a challenging ascent, but the summit views are brilliant. Throughout the climb you’ll encounter fields of gorgeous flowers, lush rainforests and bamboo bushes. Treks normally take three days, leaving from Hanoi, and many include a stopover in lovely Sa Pa. If climbing isn’t for you, buy a $22 USD ticket and ride the cable car but beware of the mass of fellow riders at the summit!

This is the perfect getaway from the big city for anyone with an affinity for traveling several days on a bicycle.
