Highlights of Ha Giang

  • Dong Van Plateau – a mysterious grey stone

The first wonder is Dong Van stone plateau, which creates a gray stone scenary, where people “live in stone, die in stone” extremely special for Ha Giang. Ha Giang, a distant land “birds fly broken wings twice” could arrive, idiom means it is in the northern pole of the country. Ha Giang is also the most ancient land of the Earth, so that the Dong Van Plateau became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in December 2010.

Palace of Vuong  Family – Green pearl in the heart of the plateau

The second wonder is the green pearl in the middle of the stone plateau – the Vuong  residence. The beautiful  Vuong- shaped palace is surrounded by rows of cunninghamia and still got intact preservation after the ups and downs of history, raining winds, made a fascinating historical story. The Vuong residence was started building in 1019 and completed 10 years later with a total cost of up to 150,000 dong (equivalent to 150 billion Vietnam dong currently). The turtle-shaped hill with rare turtles and strong rows of cunninghamia trees rose up to a house shaped like “Vuong” as marked in the blue sky.

Lung Cu flag pole – “The place to begin the first brushstrokes of the Vietnam map.

The third wonder is Lung Cu Flag Tower – “where the first drawing of the motherland map begins,” and anyone who is Vietnamese, wants to be conquer once by the divine northernmost point.The distance is 1.5km from  Ha Giang city to Lung Cu flag pole, over 389 stone steps and climbing 140 spiral stairs in the heart of the flag pole, we will set foot to the top of Lung Cu flag pole, Ha Giang – pole north of the country. Where there is a yellow star red flag with an area of 54m2, metaphorical of 54 ethnic , the fly in the wind.

Happiness Road – 50 years road of blood and flowers

The fourth wonder is the Happiness Road- the path of blood and flowers. This 200-kilometer long road was constructed by tens of thousands of young volunteers from 16 ethnic groups in eight northern provinces of Vietnam for six years (1959 – 1965), with more than two million working days, in which Ma Peng Li pass is made by the youth who were in the suicide team hanging on the cliffs encroach on centimeters to do in 11 months.

Ma Leng is unofficially known as one of the “four great passes” in the mountains of northern Vietnam, beside O Quy Ho Pass, Khau Pha  Pass and Pha Din Pass.The Happiness Road is a bridge that brings light for the highland, not only with all the effort but also the blood and life of a young volunteers. This year is also the 50th anniversary of the completion of Ha Giang – Dong Van Happiness Road.

Ma Pi Leng Pass – “Unforgettable”

Ma Pì Lèng is the Chinese name for the literal meaning “horse nose”. But in the sense of the name, this refers to the greatest danger of the top of the mountain, where the mares climb to the top and were miscarried to dead, where the slope is so high that the horse passes by to stop breathing, or the vertical mount is like the horse nose. However, according to some indigenous Mong, the proper name of the pass is Mao Pi Leng, meaning “cats nose”.

Ma Pang Pass could also be classified as Ha Giang’s “Four Great Wonders”, however, unfortunately the pass was “concretized”. And althoughthe surrounding landscape is still very majestic, but itself the cliffs  are jagged, the identity of the pass is no longer the same.

Sung La Valley – “place stone bloom”

From Yen Minh direction to the town of Dong Van, to the intersection of Pho Bang, where the beautiful pass hugs a green valley, it is So Vuong valley- “roses” of the plateau.
