Ha Giang – Winter tourist attraction

At the end of the year, Ha Giang is an attractive destination thanks to many blooming flowers, cloud hunting season and typical winter weather. 

From September to April next year is a golden time to hunt clouds that travel enthusiasts to the northern mountainous provinces cannot miss. Besides, Ha Giang at the end of the year is also the time when flowers bloom, in which the province’s symbolic flower is the buckwheat triangle. 

Ha Giang has famous rattan hunting places. Such as Tay Con Linh peak – the roof of the Northeast region, Chieu Lau Thi peak, Ma Pi Leng pass, and Chin Khoanh slope. In addition, visitors can admire the fields of buckwheat or mustard flowers spread along Highway 4C and on the roads to Dong Van, Meo Vac, Yen Minh… 

The temperature in many places in Ha Giang can drop below minus C. In some villages, frost and snow appear – rare phenomena. 

Ha Giang has a rich cuisine with five-color sticky rice, Thang Co, black chicken hot pot, buckwheat cake, and sour noodle soup. But with Tau, two dishes that tourists must eat in the winter are porridge au Tau and Thang Dan . These are two dishes that indigenous people often eat to increase body temperature and help fight the harsh cold of the North Pole. 

Ha Giang is famous as a tourist land with many natural wonders. Such as Ma Pi Leng Pass – one of the four great peaks of Vietnam’s mountain pass, Tu San Canyon – “the first majestic landscape”, Nho Que river recognized by the Ministry of Culture. Honored by Sports and Tourism as one of the unique tectonic valleys in Vietnam in 2009, Dong Van Karst Plateau was recognized by UNESCO as a “global geopark” in 2010 for its scenic landscape.
