Well, to enjoy the view of the highest mountain in Indochina you have to master quite a few steps first even you take the cable car and the funicular. And remember we are talking about a height of over 3,000 meters.

I am not a hiker, but i have met groups of experience hikers, they all have guides with them. Muoang Hoa range is big, is safer to have a guide.
