Ba Be Lake and Ban Gioc waterfall (3 days)

This exclusive tour takes visitors from the venerable city of Hanoi, complete with stately French colonial buildings and a bustling old Vietnamese quarter, to the natural wonderland that is Ba Be Lake and the Ban Gioc waterfalls, the world’s 4th largest border waterfall after Niagara, Iguacu and  Victoria.

 

You will also be able interact with the ethnic Tay minority in small villages and explore the Nang River by boat.

 

1, 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. For the Vietnamese people the place has been full of magic and mystery for over 1,500 years and the mystical lake has been the source of legend and folklore ever since people first settled in this are.

 

2, Ban Gioc waterfall are two waterfalls on the Quay Son River, in Chinese Guichun River, straddling the Sino-Vietnamese border, located in the Karst hills of Daxin County, Guangxi (Chinese side), and in Trung Khanh District, Cao Bang province on the Vietnamese side, 272 km (169 mi) north of Hanoi. It is currently the 4th largest waterfall along a national border, after Iguazu Falls, Victoria Falls, and Niagara Falls and was one of the crossing points for China’s army during the brief Sino-Vietnamese War. Nearby there is the Tongling Gorge accessible only through a cavern from an adjoining gorge. Rediscovered only recently, it has many species of endemic plants, found only in the gorge, and in the past was used as a hideout by local bandits, whose treasure is occasionally still found in the cliff-side caves.
