Ha Giang

Ha Giang, 300 km away from Hanoi, located at the highest latitude in Vietnam. The province is bordered by Cao Bang, Tuyen Quang, Lao Cai, and Yen Bai. It also shares a border with China in the north. Many ethnic minorities, including the Dao, H’mong, Tay and Nung, live in Ha Giang.


The climate is divided in two distinct seasons (rainy and dry), although it tends to vary greatly depending on altitude. Ha Giang is the ideal location to organize activities such as hiking and camping, trekking, motorcycling and 4WD adventures.


Dong Van Highland is situated at 1,025m above sea level and is inhabited by the Tay and H’Mong ethnic groups. The temperature is approximately 1oC in winter and reaches 24oC on the hottest days. The plateau provides for fruit orchards such as Hau plums, peaches and persimmons without seeds. Dong Van apples are as big as pears. In Dong Van, numerous valuable plants used for their medicinal value are also found, including ginseng, anise and cinnamon.
