Because the cable car operation time is from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm daily, it will be difficult for you to watch the time to watch the sunrise or sunset on Fansipan. However, you can choose when to peak during midday. It was a peak time with little fog, light breezes, and sunshine. At that time, you can take photos and visit the scenery easily.

Unlike trekking, the height difference between the two stations is 1,410m, and it only takes about 15p for the cable car to reach this height. Therefore, when the cable car arrives at Fansipan station, you will have ringing in the ears and a slight height shock because the body has not adapted to the new height. The best way to reduce this effect is to take a deep, steady breath. Besides, you should also bring a scarf, and a warm sweatshirt because the temperature on the top is lower and the wind is even stronger. If you feel short of breath or have unusual symptoms, you should immediately contact a station attendant for medical assistance.
