This also became the first global geological park of Vietnam.

3. Lung Cu Flagpole
Lung Cu is at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level and is the North Pole of Vietnam, which has long become a sacred image in the hearts of every Vietnamese people. Viewed from below, Lung Cu flagpole stands tall on the top of the mountain with the red flag staring and fluttering in the wind full of pride.
You have to walk about 1.5 kilometers, pass 389 stone steps and climb another 140 spiral steps right inside the flagpole to reach the top of Lung Cu flagpole with 54 meters square flag of Vietnam, the metaphor of 54 ethnic groups. From the peak of Lung Cu flagpole, you will see 2 lakes below, located nearly symmetrically, called "dragon eye" by the native, which creates a unique painting.
4. The Mansion of the Wang family
Vuong's edifice is located on the top of a small hill, where the entrance is lined with ancient, and straight samu trees. It’s still intactly remained after many ups and downs of history. The mansion features a unique architecture influenced by three different kinds: Chinese, Mong people and French. It took 10 years to complete this structure with a total budget of up to 150,000 white silver coins (equivalent to 150 billion Vietnamdong now).
This mansion was recognized as a National Monument by the State in 1993. In 2004, the Vuong family decided to dedicate this mansion to the State for conservation. Only standing on the mansion and down looking the valley below do we see the superficiality of the mansion.
5. Dong Van ancient town
Dong Van ancient town is located in the middle of the valley with four surrounding rocky mountains. The old town has only 40 houses nestled under rocks. If you go to the old town on lunar month, you will see a very different old town with red lanterns, in addition to a number of activities such as displaying brocade of ethnic groups, performing and selling traditional dishes.
Early in the morning, the old town painting is a clever combination of two tones: the bright yellow of the sun and the gray of old houses. Looking down from above, the three rows of markets lined up in the shape of U-shaped roof of yin and yang are two ancient streets running into the foot of the mountain. Sitting under a small roof and enjoying a cup of hot coffee in the mountainous region is an extremely interesting experience.
Above is a collection of top 5 most beautiful tourist destinations in Ha Giang that you should spend time visiting. Wish you have a happy trip!
