Ha Giang

Ha Giang, located 300 km northeast of Hanoi, is the northernmost region of Vietnam. It borders the provinces of Cao Bang, Tuyen Quang, Lao Cai, and Yen Bai, with China to the north. Ha Giang province is home to many ethnic minorities, including the Dao, H'Mong, Tay, and Nung.

The climate in Ha Giang is divided into two distinct seasons (rainy and dry), although it can vary depending on altitude. Ha Giang is an ideal location for organizing outdoor activities such as long-distance hiking and camping. Famous destinations include Ban Nhuoc Waterfall and the Quoc Lo 4C National Frontier Pass.

Dong Van Plateau, situated at 1,025 m above sea level, is inhabited by the Tay and H'Mong ethnic groups. Winter temperatures here drop to around 1°C, while on the hottest days, temperatures reach 24°C. The plateau is renowned for its products such as Hau plums, peaches, and seedless persimmons. Dong Van apples are as large as pears. In Dong Van, one can find numerous valuable plants used for medicinal purposes, including ginseng, anise, and cinnamon.

Dong Van offers visitors many attractions: mountains, forests, hidden grottoes and caves, colorful orchid forests, plum and peach trees, and persimmon orchards.

Visitors to Dong Van can explore Pho Bang, also known as Dong Van Old Street, characterized by houses with clay brick walls and tile roofs. On Sundays, tourists can shop at the unique mountain market, which offers a wide variety of goods and vibrant clothing.
