Ba Be Lake - Ban Gioc Waterfall 3 days

Ba Be Lake in Ba Be National Park is an incredibly beautiful area boasting waterfalls, rivers, deep valleys, lakes and caves set amid towering peaks. The area is inhabited by members of the Zao, H’mong and Tay minorities. 

Ban Gioc Waterfall on the Quy Xuan River is located in Cao Bang Province, nears the Sino-Vietnamese border. The waterfall falls thirty meters. It is separated into three falls by rocks and trees, and the thundering effect of the water hitting the cliffs can be heard kilometers away from Trung Khanh.

Nguom Ngao is a really amazing cave, huge and attractive with various shaped stalactites. Some stalactites can create echo also. In comparing this cave with Thien Cung Cave in Ha Long Bay, it is certain that you truly think Nguom Ngao is more beautiful.

    This valley is situated 250 miles south of Hanoi, Vietnam's capital city, and it is an ideal place for agriculture. One interesting aspect about this valley is its incredibly high mountains which are about 500-1200 meters high. These mountains together with the valley's paddy fields create that great scenic landscape that you can only see after climbing 500 steps to reach the peak of the mountain. This valley is also quite famous for its incredible lakes. If you head straight to the valley's pathways leading you to the paddy fields, you'll get a chance to see the beautiful river that runs crossing the rice fields. Besides the valley itself, the Bac Son district's village possesses a beauty of its own. The district is inhabited by the Tay ethnic people and their traditional stilt houses. If you wish to see the entire view of the valley you would need to reach the peak of Bac Son Mountains. It can be tiring to climb these mountains, but the effort is all worth it especially if you want to take that share-worthy panoramic shot of the Bac Son Valley. This valley has become a source of interest for the tourists because of its enticing beauty.
