    Ha Giang is a perfect hiking destination in Vietnam thanks to the pine forests, granite mountains, quiet farming villages, and heavenly views are offered in the region. The trekking routes in Ha Giang fall far enough from the tourist circuit, so you can wander its mountainsides uninterrupted for days at a time, and local interactions are based on mutual curiosity rather than commerce.

    Ha Giang is bounded by Cao Bang, Tuyen Quang, Lao Cai, and Yen Bai provinces and has common international border with China in the north. Ha Giang has many high rocky mountains, limestone formations and springs. The topography of the province of Ha Giang is fairly complex with “temperate, but highly localized montane weather patterns create variable conditions among different regions”.
