NDO – Snow fell on top of Fansipan Mountain, the highest peak in Indochina, last night due to the influence of a current cold spell in the northern region.

On the morning of December 19, Fansipan Peak in Sa Pa town, in the northern province of Lao Cai, was covered with white snow.

The temperature last night was minus 7 degrees Celsius and minus 4 degrees Celsius at 7 am this morning, freezing the water on tree branches. The cable car station leading to the top of Fansipan was covered with ice. There was light snowfall and snow covered the whole top area of the highest mountain in Vietnam, creating a beautiful scene in the tropical country.

Visitors to the Sun World Fansipan Legend tourism site this morning were surprised and impressed when they stepped out of the cable car, as the entire natural space, the top of the iron triangle at the top of Fansipan Peak at 3,143m and the wooden floor area around the top, were covered with white snow.

Following are several pictures of Fansipan Peak under snow and ice:
