Trip overview

Start your incredible Northern Vietnam Tour with Ha Giang. The destination is Vietnam’s northern final frontier, with a beautiful mix of granite outcrops and limestone pinnacles. The route from Yen Minh to Dong Van, or from Ma Pi Leng Pass to Meo Vac will make you wonder why you don’t know about this place sooner.

Spend the first and second day to immerse yourself in the deep history and life of the locals. Because of its spectacular natural beauty coupled with cultural richness, Ha Giang has been the most popular destination in North Vietnam. But the sheer distance from other travel hubs have kept the number of tourists here conveniently low.

Take time to indulge in the mouth-watering and cheap local food or enjoy the hospitality of the Hmong ethnic tribes. You are sure to receive a warm welcome and memories that will reminisce for years to come.

On the third day, get ready to trek along Ma Pi Leng Pass for a stunningly beautiful view of the verdant valley down below encircled by rolling hills. Before your gaze is lush vegetation, falling away in steep slopes, sometimes shrouded in mist, depending on the time of the year.

Our next stop is Ban Gioc waterfall. In terms of quantity, it definitely takes some beating. You need a boat to get the best panorama, which is ready for you as you arrive. There are plenty of photo opportunities to capture Instagram-worthy shots anywhere. The waterfall is regarded as the biggest border waterfall in South-east Asia located right between Vietnam and China. Here you also have chance to admire the awe-inspiring nature and landscape of Cao Bang Geopark. Moreover, the ethnic Nung minority and their traditional handicrafts such as incense and knife making are worth life-time experience.

Conclude this 6-day northern Vietnam tour in Ba Be Lake. Ba Be National Park covered 23,000 hectares of wilderness ringed by towering peaks. Surrounded by mountains, there are plenty of hikes, walks, and pristine countryside. Spending time here is likely to make you feel close to nature. Chance for you to explore the primitivity of Ba Be lake by boat or kayaking. Dont forget to try the Widow Island in the middle of the lake where you can see sunset or try thrilling jumping to fresh water.

Cant Resist Loving!

Such an incredible journey through mountains that were like nothing I’d ever seen! Every day was full of majestic scenery. The accommodations were simple but superb: rural hospitality, piles of fresh food, and great spirits all around. Our guide, Minh, was best at showing us the history of everywhere we visited.

Best Travel Company

My husband and I together with our 3 grown kids just finished a great visit of 6 days to wonderful Northern Vietnam. Conical Travel built the itinerary and organized a great trip. The itinerary was tailored-made a little bit for us and was very well organized. All accommodations and guides were good with relatively good English and being highly service oriented. Highly recommend this agency to everyone!

Wirklich Schätzen!!!

Wir buchten eine 6-tägige Reise der Majestät des unerwarteten Nordostvietnams bei einer deutschen Agentur, die Partner von Conical Travel ist. Wir sind etwas besorgt, weil wir zum ersten Mal in Vietnam waren, aber ich habe mich mit Windy von Conical unterhalten, der alle Fragen mit Begeisterung für uns beantwortet und nützliche Empfehlungen gegeben hat. Nach 2 Monaten haben wir endlich die Reise gemacht. Wir machten die Reise nach Ha Giang, Ban Gioc Wasserfall und Ba Be See mit unserem Guide Jack und Fahrer Hoang. Jack hat wirklich gute Arbeit geleistet, um uns alles über Bergregionen und ethnische Kulturen zu zeigen. Wir erfuhren von den Hmong-Leuten in Ha Giang, wir blieben bei den Nung-Leuten in Cao Bang und mischten sich mit den Tay-Leuten im Ba Be-Nationalpark. Die Landschaft dort ist auch großartig und ich kann mit Sicherheit sagen, dass ich noch nie zuvor eine so majestätische Landschaft wie diese gesehen habe. Vielen Dank an Windy, Ivan und Conical Travel für alles, was Sie für uns getan haben. Ich kann Sie nur weiterempfehlen.

Magnifique voyage

J’ai passé un excellent séjour au top Nord du Vietnam grâce à l’agence Conical Travel et le guide francophone très sympa Ivan.
Venant de la bassin grenobloise mais je suis quand même impressionné par les paysages montagnards ici. Ha Giang est la province au top Nord du Vietnam, une ville frontière avec la Chine, un bon choix à côté des grandes villes comme Hanoi ou HCM-ville. Où on peut visiter la cascade Ban Gioc dont une moitié est vietnamienne et l’autre est chinoise.
J’aime la diversité et j’ai rencontré des peuples dits “minorités” ici, ils sont tout amicaux.
Un voyage vraiment inoubliable!
