The trip to “relocate” the roof of Indochina

Although he was at the age of seventy years old, when he heard us ask about conquering the top of the oldest mountain in Indochina, Mr. Khuyen became very active. Taking a sip of strong tea, he said: “That year, when I was working at the district Culture Department, the leader was assigned the task of bringing a delegation of Polish experts and mountain climbers to the top of Fansipan in Sapa Vietnam so that they could book tip on it”. At that time, Mr. Khuyen could not fully imagine the difficulties he would face when conquering the majestic Hoang Lien Son spine.

One early October 1984, Ha Van Khuyen was informed to gather with the group in the center of town. In front of a small yard, a publicist from Ha Nam’s hometown widened his eyes when he saw a ridiculous amount of people. Experts from Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria… were fully dressed, covered with warm clothes. Nearby were backpacks, climbing ropes and lots of… canned meat. The 3-sided top of the top is made of dura material, wrapped in a soft cloth, carefully carried on his back by a Hmong porter. A group of 50 people, with 17 foreign experts tattooed towards Cat Cat in Sapa Vietnam, began a 3-day journey to bring the top to the highest mountain in Indochina at that time.

“In that day, there was only one way to reach the top, which was in the direction of Cat Cat village in Sapa Vietnam. This is also the route that the Hmong use to go deep into Hoang Lien Son to grow cardamom, so leading the group is assigned to the “terrestrial” brothers, Mr. Khuyen said. Leaving Cat Cat, the group began to meet the first challenges of the mother mountain. Slope to slope. The smooth road suddenly stood up like an angry horse. Mr. Khuyen shivered recalling the feeling he called himself “lifting the knee and touching the chin” when forced to overcome the complex terrain at that time. It took them nearly 4 hours to get to the station at an altitude of 1,500m. At this time, both we and Tay were red in the face, sweating like a bath.

After an overnight stay, the group continued the journey. The higher you go, the more difficult the path. The temperature began to drop sharply. But the scariest thing for the junglers in this area is… snakes. “The second night, when I and everyone were lying in the tent to sleep, I suddenly jumped because I saw something crawling over me. He opened his eyes and found that it was a meter long snake. No one dares to breathe hard,” Khuyen said. The “fierce god” of Hoang Lien forest quietly left after walking in the tent for a while. But, all that night, the “human guys” holding the dream were tossing and turning, unable to sleep.

The next day, the group left the 2,600m point towards the front. The rainforests are gradually disappearing. Instead, there are thousands of dwarf bamboos and ancient rhododendrons. “The destination is getting closer and closer, everyone is nervous and excited. All were well aware that this was not just an ordinary conquest. This time, we will bring the first spire attached to the top of the mountain. It was like once again locating and naming the mountain,” Mr. Khuyen recalled.

That afternoon, 50 people officially set foot on the roof of Indochina in Sapa Vietnam. The apex placement is carried out. Cement, sand and gravel, which are carefully stored at the bottom of the basket to prevent wetness, are poured out. Mixer, builder. It only takes about 30 minutes, the towering Duyra tower was erected, at an altitude of 3,143m. The Western men hugged the Vietnamese guide group, shouting in all kinds of languages. Although no one understands who, but all are proud to have contributed to “carrying the top” attached to the top of the sky.
