Ha Giang

Vietnam's northernmost region, offers picturesque vista and multicultural richness, best explored on a motorcycle or foot

Ha Giang, located in Vietnam's northernmost region, boasts a diverse range of cultures and unique geography. The area, which shares a 270 km border with China, is one of the last parts of Vietnam that requires a visa for tourists to visit. Despite gaining popularity, Ha Giang remains relatively undiscovered and offers sweeping views of karst mountains, flower-filled landscapes, vibrant markets, and a rich variety of ethnic minority communities. From the breathtaking Ma Pi Leng Pass to the majestic Quan Ba Pass and Dong Van Karst Plateau Geopark, Ha Giang is a visual and spiritual delight.

Don't forget to experience the charm of Sa Phin H'Mong Palace and Lung Cu, where a towering Vietnamese flag proudly flutters at the border. To relish the province's natural splendor to the fullest, plan your trip between September to November when the weather is pleasantly cool.

With a turbulent history of invasions, Ha Giang is now a peaceful home to communities such as Tay, H'mong, Nung, Giay, Lo Lo, and Pu Peo, all with their own fascinating cultures. The landscape, with its iconic rice terraces, beautifully showcases the interaction between environment and people. Explore the region by bike or foot and climb the dizzying mountain passes for unrivalled views of this incredible border region.
