Best time to do the Ha Giang loop

Each season in Ha Giang has its own unique appeal, so depending on your particular preferences, you can choose the stylish time to explore this beautiful region.

The Ha Giang loop can do all-time. During the rainy season, you can occasionally enjoy clearer days than in the dry season. Although the dry season has lower rain, shadows, clouds may still obscure the scenery. Mountain rainfall is notoriously changeable, so always be prepared for unforeseen changes. An overview of the best seasons:

  • Dry season: From December – April
  • Wet season: From May – November

The Ha Giang loop in northern Vietnam offers stunning landscapes and cultural experiences. The best time to travel the loop is typically from September to November or from March to May. During these months, the weather is generally mild, with comfortable temperatures and minimal rainfall.

In September to November, you’ll catch the tail end of the rainy season, so the landscapes will be lush and green. From March to May, you’ll experience the blooming season when flowers carpet the hillsides, adding even more beauty to the scenery. However, keep in mind that weather patterns can vary, so it’s always a good idea to check the forecast before planning your trip. Additionally, the loop can be crowded during peak tourist season, so if you prefer fewer crowds, consider visiting during the shoulder months of September/October or March/April.
