The newly installed cable car system on Mount Fansipan, Vietnam and Indochina’s highest peak (3,143 meters or 10,312 feet), has helped to draw an increasing number of tourists to the area.

NatGeo suggests that visitors to the area consider going on a hike in the Hoang Lien Son National Park and the nearby Muong Hoa Valley.
