Many solo travellers tend to ask us how hard Ha Giang Loop is, and if it’s possible to do it on their own or better to sit at the back of drivers. The answer depends on your riding skills and what experiences you expect to have. These typical perspectives of obstacles in this article can give you more insights into this tricky but amazing loop journey.
1. THINGS YOU SHOULD HAVE IN MIND BEFORE HA GIANG LOOP
- First of all, the language barrier is always one of the most common issues for those who explore Ha Giang on their own. Some people working at the accommodation you stay in speak English but not all of them. So communications amongst people become much easier as learning some simple keyphrases or using Google Translate. Plus, it would be lovely if you get to know culture diversity to respect their local values during the stay.
- Wifi is quite popular in Vietnam, even Ha Giang but the connection is not always stable. Thus, you’d better have an extra internet sim card or download an offline map in case of getting lost in the dark. Also, driving licence and legal permit in frontier areas should be adhered to. No idea of what that permit is? Check this to save all the hassle!
- Last but not least, don’t forget to have a good bike for the trip. Make sure to check if it works properly with full of protected gears. You get what you pay, the cheapest is always the dearest. All the good bikes from Ha Giang Epic Tour are on the link.
