Discover Vietnam’s Hidden Himalayas – Complete Trekking Ha Giang
An adventure conquering best of the best spectacular roads in Vietnam to reach the most authentic things: landscapes, life, culture, and people.
Conquer dazed roads
Lasting 8 days, this journey will take travelers to almost parts of Ha Giang covering imposing Dong Van karst plateau – the global geopark, Lung Cu flagpole – Vietnam’s the northernmost point, stunning terrace fields in Hoang Su Phi, and Pan Hou ecolodge – where to enjoy fresh life in lovely traditional stilt-houses. Trekking at introductory grade, but travelers will experience a demanding drive on narrow, exceedingly spectacular roads meandering around massive mountains, dazed hairpin turns, and heavenly misty passes.
Ravishing scenery - Untouched culture
One special point of this adventure is that during the drive, travelers can stop at anywhere they like to sightsee and photograph. This route is a great chance to view adorable landscapes only in Ha Giang, with radiant wildflower grounds of daisy and cockscombs, poetic buckwheat and mustard flower fields, towering karst mountains, terraced fields, dizzy hairpin turns, and to encounter colorful ethnic tribes, who are extremely original.
Ha Giang has been populated by minor groups for hundred years, majorly Hmong, Tay and Dao. As the most secluded area in Vietnam, used to be isolated until the Happiness Road leading here was constructed, tribes in Ha Giang has maintained almost intact their culture and character. They are still wearing traditional clothes and living traditional lifestyles.
