Sapa - what to bring

Bring as little as possible but bring everything you need. Travelling light is much less of a hassle so do not bring things you can do without. You can always leave some of your luggage at your hotel in Hanoi if you return there. If you prefer to bring your luggage it is no problem, the start and end point of the trekking is the hotel in Sapa. You can also leave it there before the trekking starts and pick it up the next day. If you prefer to have it at the homestay they can transfer it for you at your own expense.

Thanks to its geographic condition, Sapa has one of the most favorable climates in Vietnam. The temperature remains stably cool throughout the year though winter may see more severe changes, with frost and even snow for a few days per year (mostly from mid-December to mid-January). In the valley the altitude is 1000 meters and temperatures don’t drop below 6 degrees Celsius.

Trying to predict the weather in Sapa is almost impossible. However, here is our best attempt:

Sapa weather is characterized by a sub-tropical climate. However, as a result of the high altitude, the weather in Sapa is cool all year round. In summer, Sapa does not suffer the harsh heat like that on the coastal plains. Temperatures in summer fluctuate from 10-18°C at night and 20-28°C during the day.

When the sun shines, it can be harsh, even on cloudy days so expect to need sun protection. Rain and fog is possible throughout the year.

In winter, Sapa Town is often blanketed by fog and cold air, temperatures may drop below zero degrees Celsius some days.

Luggage and bags:

A daypack to bring on your treks is a good idea. These can be easily bought in Hanoi or Sapa.

Clothing/ Shoes/ Weather Gear:

Bring clothes to suit the local weather.

Always keep your spare clothes in a watertight bag to ensure they stay dry if there is a sudden downpour. The Sapa climate is totally unlike the rest of Vietnam.

Essential items to have for the trek are some layers of warm & light clothing (mornings can be cold but you may get pretty warm during the day as you trek). A pair of sturdy trekking shoes is essential.

In January to March it can be quite cold, foggy and rainy. A fleece and raincoat/ poncho is advisable and gumboots/ Wellington boots. These items are available in Sapa at good prices.

Bring your camera! Any camera will do, or you will be sure to regret it.

- Long-Sleeved Shirt/ T-Shirt – Fleece for the cooler evenings
