In the Northern mountains of Vietnam, Ha Giang offers an exciting addition for the more adventurous traveller. Going into the mountains outside of Ha Giang town, the roads are steep, winding and not too smooth but any discomfort in the travelling conditions is worth it for the spectacular views over the hills and vales. Each twist and turn of the roads reward you with more vistas for the camera lens to get excited about. With less intense tourism, the area offers a glimpse of life for the local Ethnic minority group who live in these remote settings.
Getting there: Bus or car from the centre of Ha Noi. Motorbikes are needed for the more remote areas.
