Ngu Chi Son Mountain, revered as a masterpiece of nature, stands tall as the most majestic peak in the northwest. Recently, it has emerged as an enticing trekking destination, offering a plethora of challenges for adventurous backpackers eager to immerse themselves in the natural world.

Ngu Chi Son proudly resides within the Hoang Lien Son Mountain Range, serving as a border between Ngu Chi Son Commune in Sapa Town, Lao Cai Province, and Son Binh Commune in Tam Duong District, Lai Chau Province. Its lofty peak reaches an elevation of approximately 2,858 meters above sea level, featuring five distinct peaks that strikingly resemble five outstretched fingers pointing towards the heavens.

Embarking on the journey to conquer Ngu Chi Son Mountain is not for the faint of heart. Travelers must overcome a labyrinth of challenging terrain, navigating precarious makeshift staircases, squeezing through rocky crevices, and grasping tree roots to ascend slippery slopes. As the ascent progresses, the trials intensify. The path entails traversing streams, waterfalls, unspoiled forest carpets, and frigid rocky cliffs. Every step demands unwavering attention and caution. However, the breathtaking vista awaiting adventurers at the peak justifies the arduous endeavor.

Travelers who conquer the highest peak revel in the splendor of nature, basking in the cool, invigorating atmosphere

While Ngu Chi Son Peak presents a formidable challenge compared to other summits, its scenery remains untouched by human intervention. The mountain boasts diverse vegetation, including a tapestry of flowers, bamboo groves, and ancient forests, all enveloped by the embrace of ethereal white clouds. Those who have reached the summit find themselves wholly immersed in the allure of nature, reveling in the pure, refreshing mountain air.

To embark on this adventure, travelers are advised to consult with local porters to determine if weather conditions favor the journey. Rain can render the trails treacherous and slippery. Adequate preparation is essential, including climbing gear such as thermal clothing, sleeping bags, medicines, food, gloves, ropes, and more.
