Hanoi - Ha Giang - Ba Be - Ban Gioc - Bac Son Tour 6 Days
Join our journey to discover the most outstanding destinations in the
northeast area including Dong Van Karst Plateau, Ba Be National Park,
Ban Gioc Waterfall and Bac Son Valley. Highlight of this region is the
mythical combination of towering forested limestone peaks and deep
valleys, creating a breathtaking beauty that hardly find anywhere else.
However, it does not mean the beauty of this region is all about
dramatic peaks and troughs, and that your trip will be only adventurous.
After visiting the Karst Plateau with “rock forest” and craggy mountain
passes, we will head down to Ba Be National Park, spend time discovering
the romantic and gorgeous lakes deeply hidden among limestone pinnacles
and lush forests. Then again drive up northeast to enjoy the impressive
beauty of Ban Gioc Waterfall, the largest waterfall in Asia. Surrounded
by limestone mountain peaks, its water rushes down a three-tiered cliff
from a height of more than 70 meters and is divided into three falls by
rocks and trees. The last stop in your journey is Bac Son valley, an
enchanting place with picturesque landscape of high mountains and a
winding river run crossing the rice fields, truly deserves to be known
as “Green Paradise on Earth”.
