It is often thought that climbing lasts from late autumn, through winter and spring. However, try climbing in the summer to see if there is anything more interesting. Let's refer to the article below before you plan to plan this trip!
The weather is quite pleasant, the nature is poetic

Surely the children of the city are afraid of the heat of summer. However, you will have an extremely yomost experience with the summer in the high places of the Northwest - Lao Cai. The temperature always fluctuates between 18-25 degrees (except in the city center). However, you should still start your trip in the morning to catch the first rays of sunlight and the air at this time is also the freshest.

Summer is also the season of flowering and fruiting, the time when the flowers bloom most beautifully. Escape from the lavish city, leisurely climb the mountain to find the highest points to see the whole world in sight, play with the mischievous sunshine, breathe very refreshingly after a journey to conquer the peak. Not only that, the feeling of being in harmony with nature, away from the city's smoke and dust to listen to the birdsong, the rustling of the forest leaves, etc., and a few "field" dishes such as grilled chicken, rice. Lam, grilled fish,...  there's really nothing like it. For children, this is an opportunity for them to enjoy exploring the mountains, forests, trees, away from everyday technology items, etc.   That moment will definitely make you completely forget the chaos and fatigue outside. that.
