Ha Giang-Off beaten path to the roof of Vietnam

Vietnam’s mountainous provinces – the places for adventurous fellows out there. If you see a winding road with endless turns… then definitely you’re in the mountainous province of Ha Giang - one of the most beautiful worth – visiting places in Vietnam.

Ha Giang is Vietnam’s northern-most province. The mysterious landscape along the Chinese border - a combination of conical limestone peaks and deep, craterous valleys – is probably the most striking in the country.

Considered by many as the last frontier for adventurous travel in north Vietnam, Ha Giang already has an almost legendary status among independent travelers. With mountain passes hanging onto cliff-faces high above roaring rivers, and back-roads threading through forests of limestone pinnacles, it’s ideal territory for a motorbike road trip.

Almost 90% of the Ha Giang’s population are ethnic minorities with their own cultures and lifestyles which creates a unique and rich cultural heritage of the area. One of the events that makes Ha Giang become unique is the market days which are organized on specific days which is usually on Sundays.

The different ethnic groups all around the wide expanse of Ha Giang remain remote from each other, and market days gives them the opportunity to gather together to exchange goods and services, to share their cultures or perhaps just to chat and see old friends.

There are currently around 40 such markets on the Dong Van rock plateau alone.

Coming to Ha Giang, not just that you get to the destinations to enjoy the scenery, but right on the way already.

Winding roads surrounding charming rivers, when protruding on the back side of the mountain with wind and cloud, when interlaced like lines squeezed on the back of the mountains make you have unforgettable experiences.
