On the banks of Nho Que River, the red cotton tree lines also spring up beautiful and lovely flowers, adorning the scenery as a wonderland on earth.

Where is the best place to see resplendent red cotton flowers in Ha Giang




Whenever referring to the land of Ha Giang, a few things immediately spring to everyone's mind: The landscapes of grandiose mountains, Dong Van Karst Plateau Geopark - a spectacular place in the UNESCO list, the breathtaking beauty of terraced rice fields, the endless romantic buckwheat flowers.

Entering the days of April, the banks of Nho Que river become poetic natural pictures as red cotton trees are full bloom. Each flower shines like a red spark and they are clearly visible from a distance of 500 meters. Compared to the bustling streets, crowded people, and noise in the cities, this land is an ideal haven for tourists. This is where you are delighted to let your soul free in nature, do what you like and always filled with joy and happiness.

In Ha Giang, you can find many places to see red cotton tree flowers, stretching from Yen Minh district to Meo Vac district and also the central area of Dong Van plateau, but perhaps only in one part of the Nho Que river, the flowers bloom the most brilliantly, a place makes you flutter right from the first time you arrive.



The most amazing and impressive experience along with Nho Que river is to be floating on the green water on a small wooden boat, looking at the clouds, enjoying the magnificent mountain scenery and admiring the red cotton tree flowers in the April days.
