HA GIANG TREKKING TOURS
See images of services provided in our tours in Ha Giang province:
Located in the Northeast of Vietnam, Ha Giang Province is a paradise
for nature lovers, trekkers and eco-tourists.
Flanked by the Lo River and the Mien River, dominated by the peaks of the Tay Con Linh and Kieu Lieu Ti, the province’s landscape is spectacular, with its many high rocky summits, its striking limestone formations and its numerous springs. It is a relatively unpopulated area of Vietnam due to its challenging topography, which makes it an ideal base for trekking tours.
Counting about a thousand species of herbal plants, bamboos and many species of trees, the primary forest is as pretty as a postcard with its cascading streams, waterfalls and pools. It also shelters abundant wildlife, and patient observers may be rewarded by an encounter with a pangolin or a specimen of the 16 species of reptiles or 36 species of amphibians known to live in the area, to name but a few inhabitants.
Tuan Linh Travel is one of the first travel companies to have developed a community-based network in the province and our Ha Giang tours offer holidaymakers an authentic and unforgettable experience.
