How to get to White Cliffs?

From Ha Giang city, move along Highway 4C to Ma Pi Leng Pass (the section connecting Dong Van and Meo Vac towns). Then travel by motorbike (self-drive or hire a driver) through a narrow road about 3 km long. Here you will see a cliff on one side and an abyss on the top of Ma Pi Leng. You will trek about 1 km further to reach the camping location.

During your adventure tour in Ha Giang to the White Cliffs, you will see the majestic, sweeping beauty of Ma Pi Leng Pass. This road is a concrete road and is used by people every day. There are dangerous slopes and there are iron railings for protection. On the hiking path there will be a viewing platform so visitors can stop and admire the beauty of the surrounding scenery and below.

Camping at White Cliffs

A rock hollow on a white cliff has a field of land about 15-20m2 wide. This is a place to camp, where you can pitch a tent. This land was stacked and leveled by humans, located under a large stone arch, gradually curving and eating deep into the heart of the mountain. However, this place does not have iron railings like the hiking path, so you must pay close attention to safety.

From the rock hollow, you can admire the endless mountain scenery, see Tu San canyon below, and the winding road of Ma Pi Leng pass. This will be a wonderful and exciting experience on an adventure tour in Ha Giang. Build a fire, rest and enjoy dinner and watch the beautiful sunset. You will feel the peace, immerse yourself in nature and the majestic, wild natural beauty. Wake up in the morning, admire the beauty of the Nho Que River at dawn, enjoy breakfast and a hot cup of tea. Those will be unforgettable experiences.

The best time to visit White Cliffs

The best time to visit White Cliffs is August – November and March – May every year. If the weather is favorable, you can admire all the beauty of nature, avoid going in the rainy season, foggy days will affect movement and visibility.

You should bring snacks, drinks, and necessary items. And especially, you should go in groups so you can support each other. The ground is sandy so it’s very dusty, so bring a tarp to cover or a blanket or mattress to cover. Night temperatures are quite cold, so bring a sleeping bag or thick blanket. In particular, please preserve the natural environment and clean up trash before leaving.

White Cliff is gradually becoming a place of conquest for many adventure lovers. If you want more information and want to explore the White Cliffs in Ha Giang, contact Origin Travel. We will bring you a wonderful and memorable travel journey to Ha Giang.
