Dramatic scenes unfold with a truly epic performance of nature’s majesty in Ha Giang province, northern highlands Vietnam. Every turn and bend reveals another part in this spectacular play.

 

It is both awe inspiring and humbling to witness. Vietnam’s northern most point is found in the mountainous Ha Giang province which boasts dramatic scenery; deep abysses, rivers, streams and rapids and shares a 274 kilometre border with China. Rich in culture and tradition, 22 different ethnic groups live in the region. Picturesque Ha Giang town is on the banks of the Tien River.

 

Explore the ancient town of Dong Van and witness spectacular scenes on one of the world’s greatest drives between Dong Van and Meo Vac where granite cliffs soar and paths twist their way to the valley floors below. The road through the Dong Van Plateau Global Geopark is a feat in itself and many road workers died making the mountain pass in the 1950s and 1960s.

 

Wind your way through Ancient Street in Dong Vang which stretches for almost a kilometre and was formed nearly a century ago. Its architecture is characteristic of early times with stone walls, mud brick houses and cobblestone laneways.

 

A highlight of the old town is the lively markets including a weekly livestock market. Take the opportunity to meet the H’Mong communities who farm rocky outcrops and walk kilometres for water or to sell their wares.

 

Highlights:

• One of the world’s great drives from Dong Van to Meo Vac through the Dong Van Plateau Global Geopark

• H’mong communities who live high up in the mountains

• Heaven’s Gate in Quang Ba, famous since French colonial times, provides an amazing vista of Tam Son township and the Twin Mountains

• Mông linen textile weaving in Lung Tam and Can Ty villages, Quan Ba District
