Ha Giang tours to do the loop
Ha Giang is Vietnam’s northern-most province. The mysterious landscape along the Chinese border – a mythical combination of conical limestone peaks and deep, craterous valleys – is probably the most striking in the country. Once considered the last frontier for adventurous travel in Vietnam, Ha Giang gained an almost legendary status among independent travellers. In recent years, visitor numbers have increased dramatically, and road conditions between Ha Giang, Dong Van, Meo Vac and Bao Lac have improved, making access to this remote part of the country relatively easy. 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. Food, accommodation and ATMs can now be found throughout the region. Now is the time to ride the Ha Giang Extreme North Loop: before mass tourism arrives (which it inevitably will, especially as more travellers choose Ha Giang as an alternative to Sapa, which has suffered terribly from over-development) but after the completion of necessary infrastructure.
Tour Ha Giang - Cao Bang
Cao Bang is a province of the Northeast region of Vietnam. The province has borders with Hà Giang, Tuyên Quang, Bắc Kạn, and Lạng Sơn provinces within Vietnam. It also has common international border with Guangxi Province of China. The province covers an area of 6,724.6 square kilometres, and, as of 2008, its population was 528,100 people. The area has a rich history tracing to the Bronze Age of the Tày Âu Kingdom in Vietnam. The dynasties which ruled the area were Tày lords, Be Khac Thieu and Nag Dac Thai. The province is in the region where the Vietnamese people lived thousands of years ago before their southwards expansion. Cao Bằng has several points of historical interest as well as many natural features such as the Pác Bó (at the mouth of the confluence of two rivers, the Bằng Giang and Hien rivers) where Hồ Chí Minh in January 1941 established a revolutionary force at Cốc Bó cave, the Mạc emperor's Temple, the Kỳ Sầm Temple, Coi Bin Church, the Bản Giốc waterfall area at the international border between Vietnam and China, and the Thang Hen Mountain Lake.
Along the way, you will have the chance to contemplate the beauty of the terraced rice paddies, mountains, palm forests and ancient tea tree. You will also meet many local people along the way, including people from the Man and Dao communities. You will have a picnic lunch and continue the journey to the remote village of Khuoi My. As you walk, you will see the farmers working in the fields using age old techniques of cultivation, there may even be the opportunity to experience some their work at first hand.
Tour Ha Giang - Ba Be Lake
Ba Be Lake is a freshwater lake between Ba Be and Cho Don districts of Bac Kan province. The lake formed over 200 million years ago while the surrounding the ancient limestone mountains date back more than 450 million years. It is recognized as a national tourist site in Vietnam. Ba Be Lake is located in the centre of Ba Be National Park, 70km southeast of Bac Kan city. Ba Be Lake is one of the most unique and beautiful natural tourist attractions in Vietnam. The lake was formed by the geological structural changes millions of years ago that made the limestone mountains and caves. The lake was composed of three parts(Pe Leng, Pe Lu, Pe Lam) so it was called Ba Be Lake. The lake is 8km long, and 2km wide at its widest spot, with a water surface area of 500ha and an average depth of 20m, the deepest part being 35m. There are beautiful small islands on the lake and hundreds of freshwater fish. Due to its special geological structure, Ba Be Lake is very different in comparison with other Karst lakes in the world. At the International Conference of Freshwater Lakes held in March 1995 Ba Be Lake was ranked as one of 20 most beautiful natural freshwater lakes of the world that should be protected. In 2012, Ba Be Lake was recognised as a special National landscape monument. Ba Be Lake, is surrounded by the high limestone mountains and primeval jungle and retaining its beauty year-round, the panorama of the lake is like a watercolour painting.
