“We did two days treks with TrekkingSapa. They were completely manageable for all of us. Our guides were very patient and understanding, They allowed time for stopping and playing in a river. Hanging out at the TrekkingSapa office was great as well – Hung is welcoming and comfortable. We absolutely recommend trekkingSapa for everybody. You won’t regret it!”

If you’re afraid whether it can be too hard to make a trekking tour to such a primitive and undiscovered Sapa, don’t worry, we divided all the trekking tours into 3 levels: easy, medium and hard. Up to your experiences and passion, you can choose which level suits you the most, so that you can really enjoy your trip.
Here we have compiled a few tips for your Sapa trekking tour:
- Hire a guide: There are full-day hikes and even half-day hikes (like Cat Cat Village) which you may want to attempt on your own, however, if you want to spend a few days experiencing the hillside we would recommend hiring a local guide who is familiar with the terrain, the changes in weather, and the best lookout spots.
- Pack light: In our personal experience, towels and bedding were not necessary. The accommodations arranged by our tour were at a small family-run guesthouse. wet was a bit of an open-concept with lots of mattresses lined side by side and a mosquito net over the top, but we had clean bed sheets, warm blankets for the night, and fresh towels.
- And lastly, don’t forget your camera: The scenery in Sapa and the surrounding region is stunning so you’ll want to make sure you bring your camera and that the battery is fully charged.
