It is always possible to leave some of your luggage at your hotels but if you feel more comfortable to take it all it will not be a problem.
Thanks to its geographic condition, the north (especially 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 near Sapa for example the altitude is 1000 meters and temperatures won’t go under 6 degrees Celsius.
Trying to predict the weather in the north unfortunately is almost impossible. However, here is our best attempt:
The weather is characterized by sub-tropical climate. However, as a result of the high altitude, weather in the north is somewhat cooler all year round. In the summer it does not suffer the harsh heat like that in coastal plains. Temperature in summer fluctuates from 10-18°C at night and 20-28°C during the day (some days are hotter!).
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 for instance Sapa Town can often be blanketed by fog and cold air. Temperatures may drop below zero degrees Celsius for 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. Please check our website: www.getupandgovietnam.com for weather guidelines.
Always keep your spare clothes in a watertight bag to ensure they stay dry if there is a sudden downpour. The northern climate is totally unlike the rest of Vietnam.
Essential items to have for the trek are some layers of warm & light clothing (morning can be cold but 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. These items again, are available in Hanoi or Sapa at good prices.
Bring your camera! Any camera will do. You will regret it if not bringing one.
