A trip to Nho Que river on the Dong Van stone plateau

Nho Que River is mesmerising as it runs in deep ravines, through Dong Van Karst Plateau, adding to the majestic scenery of Ha Giang Province.

The river starts from China. It runs along border for 16.4km then into Vietnam through Lung Cu Commune in Ha Giang and into Gam River in Cao Bang Province.

The river is 192 km long and the length of the section in Vietnam is 46 km with various twists and turns.

Because Ha Giang is a mountainous province, Nho Que River mostly runs through dangerous terrains like ravines and deep abyss that is nearly 1,000m high.

However, five on-going hydropower dam projects are threatening to kill the natural beauty of the place.

Previously, it is a swift-flowing river but since the hydro power projects are carried out, the water at some sections is so still that it turns into 'lakes'.

After passing through Tu San Canyon, the river is blocked for Nho Que 1, 2 and 3 hydro power projects. There are also Bao Lam 3 and Bao Lam 3A projects downstream.
