Most of its surface is limestone (about 60%). Its landscape is spectacular and unique having high mountains and deep canyons. The highest peak is Mieu Vac Mount (1971m) while Tu San is the deepest Canyon (700-800 m deep).
Is Ha Giang worth it? There is no doubt that you will not fall in love with Ha Giang. So my answer is YES. DEFINITELY YES. Ha Giang had been on my list for some time. I told myself that I am not leaving Vietnam without seeing it with my own eyes. I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of this place years ago. Since Ha Giang is not frequently featured in itineraries to travel through Vietnam, I feel I need to explain why this was my absolute favorite destination in the country. Ha Giang province is located in the most northern part of Vietnam, about 400 km northwest of Hanoi. This remote and mysterious province is a showcase of unbelievable mountain landscapes, limestone walls, roaring rivers, smiling people and hundreds of kids. Apart from its stunning scenery, Ha Giang is a home to many different ethnic tribes like H’mongs. That is why Ha Giang is a great opportunity to peek into the rural way of living. It’s all very laid-back and serene, just how the Vietnam experience should be.
