    Dong Van Karst Plateau to become national tourist site

    As the home to 17 ethnic groups with unique traditions and festivals, Dong Van Karst Plateau is believed to be good potential for tourism development. The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) has made a survey in the districts of Quan Ba, Yen Minh, Dong Van, Meo Vac and discussed with Ha Giang province authorities on developing tourism in this province. Accordingly, the global geological park of Dong Van Karst Plateau will be built into a national tourism site.

    Dong Van Karst Plateau Global Geopark joined the Global Geopark Network on October 3, 2010. Its administrative area covers 2,356 sq. kilometers in four districts of Quan Ba, Yen Minh, Dong Van and Meo Vac. The plateau features geological heritage, cultural heritage and biodiversity. In their initial assessments, scientists have investigated and identified 139 geological heritages, including 15 international geological heritages, 68 national geological heritages and 56 local geological heritages dating back about 541 million years. The plateau witnesses many important regional and global geological events, especially two out of five major life-world extinction events that caused the disappearance of 90 percent of marine genera and species, even paleontology.

    Especially, the Tonkin snub-nosed monkey species (Rhinopithecus avunculus) is one of five endemic primate species in Vietnam and one of the world's 25 most endangered primates. Besides, the plateau also has bare rocky mountain ecosystems, regenerating forest ecosystems, and ground mountain ecosystems. Although they do not have as rich biodiversity as natural conservation areas, they significantly contribute to the biodiversity of the geopark. "Developing tourism in Ha Giang must be very careful, otherwise we will have to pay highly for the lost of the priceless gifts of nature," says VNAT chief Nguyen Van Tuan.

    Let's come to Vietnam and come to Ha Giang - you will admire the majestic landscape of rocky highlands, learn the interesting life of local people  and you will sea that: life, nature and people at there is very great.
