For those happy to don hiking boots and strike out into the terraced hills this is a fabulous part of the world. The scenery of sculpted rice terraces through which you trek en route between traditional wooden-housed villages is truly stunning, and the markets that play host to the colourful Flower H'mong, Nung, Dzao and Tay minority groups are a photographer's dream. Accommodation is basic, as might be expected in this remote part of the country, but staying in a local homestay is part of the experience; making a visit to Ha Giang an unforgettable adventure.
Ha Giang: Paradise for Trekking Lovers
It is an avid trekker’s ultimate dream: characterised by ancient karsts reaching up into the heavens as they house the ruins of a young earth below in subterranean tombs, pierced by mighty crags of regal mountains, and hushed by the gentle beauty of rolling hills, valleys, forests and rice fields. Ha Giang is Vietnam’s answer to an ecosystem whose geological legacy and environmental diversity remains one of the most treasured in the world, full of spectacular secrets and untold tales.
The Unconventional Path
Situated in Vietnam’s rugged northern reaches, Ha Giang is an ecotourist paradise. The Dong Van plateau – the first of its kind to earn the distinction of Global Geopark by UNESCO – is Ha Giang’s most defining aspect along with its picturesque rice fields. From pastoral beauty to wild mystique, trekkers have a myriad of trails to choose from which reveal some truly mesmerising landscapes. Travellers of all ages and fitness levels can enjoy a relaxing, scenic hike while hardcore outdoor adventurers can take on its bold features and scale ancient limestone and plunge into dense jungles where some of Vietnam’s most astounding wildlife resides. Remote, untouched, and unlike any other major destination in Southeast Asia, Ha Giang gives eager trekkers the chance to explore a geological realm which is unparalleled in its scope and without the hustle and noise of busy trekking locales.
As well as its magnificent landscape, Ha Giang is home to some of Vietnam’s oldest societies who continue to maintain a harmonious relationship with their environment. Trekkers are able to visit these locales and experience the unique customs and traditions of hill tribes in an immersive and exciting journey, as well enjoy a special stay in one of the local houses or solar-powered ecolodges.
Whether you are seeking an adventure in the wild, a cultural excursion, or simply a chance to taste the extraordinary – the trekker in you will rejoice in what Ha Giang has to offer. Guided by the expert team at Tuan Linh Travel, we will guarantee that your journey is hassle free, customised to your needs, and most importantly, fulfilling and memorable.
