Tu San Alley

Located right at the foot of Ma Pi Leng Pass and surrounded by the emerald Nho Que River, Tu San Alley is one of the most famous Ha Giang tourist destinations for backpackers. With a depth of 800m and a length of up to 1.7km, Tu San is one of the deepest canyons in Southeast Asia.

When coming to Tu San Alley, you should choose to visit in the spring or October.

Meanwhile, October is the season when buckwheat flowers bloom in Ha Giang, and the Nho Que river water is extremely clear.

Meo Vac sinkhole

As one of the new coordinates of Ha Giang tourism, Meo Vac sinkhole is also called "God's Hole" or "Heaven's Well of Ha Giang" by travel enthusiasts. As the name suggests, this place is a "huge" hole located in the middle of a pine hill about 3km from Meo Vac town.

Viewed from above, this place looks like a giant skylight with extremely impressive beauty. With a depth of nearly 40m, inside the sinkhole is an ideal environment for many tropical plants to grow, most of which are ferns. Looking from the bottom of the hole, you will have a panoramic view of the clear blue sky of Ha Giang and feel like you are stepping back into prehistoric times.

This place is still unknown to many people and is located in a rather deserted location. If you want to come here, you have to swing down the rope after traveling along the trail that indigenous people often take. If this is your first time going to the Meo Vac sinkhole, you need to wear enough protective gear or go in a group to ensure maximum safety because this place is not easy to conquer.

Suoi Thau steppe

Along with the Meo Vac sinkhole, Suoi Thau steppe is a new place but not to be missed when coming to Ha Giang. Located at an altitude of 1200m and several hundred hectares wide, this place is surrounded by the gentle Chay River and cloudy mountains. Therefore, the natural scenery on the steppe is likened to miniature Switzerland in the middle of Ha Giang.

Standing from the steppe, you can see the whole scene of Coc Pai town or surrounding areas (then Phang, Chi Ca, Coc Re, etc.). These are the houses of the Mong people, rice fields, or picturesque fruit gardens. In particular, the steppe also has many fields of triangular flowers planted by people themselves.

To get to Suoi Thau, you need to cross a nearly 6km long pass, starting from Coc Pai town to Suoi Thau village. Here, you will have many interesting activities to experience, such as paragliding, mountain biking, overnight camping, and exploring the lives of local people in Mong villages.

Suoi Thau is home to many Mong households, so you will have the opportunity to explore traditional weaving and enjoy the cuisine here. In particular, Traveloka advises you to go to the steppe around October. Because this is the time when the buckwheat fields on Suoi Thau bloom most beautifully.

Lung Tao hillside

Besides Suoi Thau Steppe, Ha Giang also has a check-in point for buckwheat flower lovers - Lung Tao Hillside. This is also one of the areas where this typical flower of the Northeast mountains and forests is grown, with the largest area in Ha Giang (about 5000 hectares).

Coming to Lung Tao, you not only have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the buckwheat "sea of flowers" but also admire the majestic mountains and forests. In particular, the mountain ranges in the Lung Tao area are surrounded by extremely "lovely" white clouds.

The ideal time for you to come to Lung Tao is September - November because this is the season when buckwheat blooms most beautifully. At this time, you will be amazed by the scenery of hillsides and valleys "covered" with the pink color of the buckwheat triangle. At the end of November, the buckwheat flower festival takes place.

One point you need to note is that the buckwheat fields in Lung Tao are planted and cared for by the local people themselves. Therefore, you will have to pay an entrance fee (10,000–15,000/ visit) if you want to visit and take photos here.

Dong Van Stone Plateau

Although it is not a new check-in point, Dong Van is always on the bucket list of Ha Giang travel enthusiasts. Located at an altitude of 1000–1600 m, the Dong Van Stone Plateau gathers many special limestone areas and natural landscapes nearly 600 million years old.

To reach the Dong Van rocky plateau, you need to cross a pass more than 150km long with deep abysses and cat-ear rocky mountains surrounding both sides. However, after passing this route, Dong Van will gradually appear extremely poetic and wild in the mountain mist. To ensure safety, you should choose tours to explore Ha Giang, traveling in groups.

Besides the natural scenery, the vegetation in Dong Van is extremely diverse. In addition, this place is also the common "home" of the Mong, Tay, Pu Peo, Dao, and Nung ethnic groups. Therefore, you can visit the villages in Dong Van to explore the culture and local cuisine.

A characteristic feature of Dong Van is the gray rocks that are present everywhere, from hillsides, gardens, and fences to small houses filled with kitchen smoke. That's why Dong Van is also known by another familiar name, "gray paradise".
