The Dong Van rock plateau has been enlisted UNESCO as a World Geo-park. Today we heard northwest out of Ha Giang town towards this northernmost tip of Vietnam.

We have time to visit Dong Van Town before continuing to Meo Vac which is inhabited mostly by the Lo Lo and Pu Peo ethnic minority people. They still retain their centuries old cultural traditions and are recognizably distinct from each other by their dress. The remoteness and the simple lifestyle of the area's local people are highlights of Meo Vac. Living conditions are very basic here. Roads are bumpy and zigzagging through the mountains. But the journey is more than rewarding. Meet the locals and learn more about the life and culture of the Hmong, Dao, Tay and Nung ethnic minorities who make for the main population in this region. Depending on road and traffic conditions, we arrive in Ba Be by late afternoon or early evening.
