How long it is from Sapa to Ha Giang?

Unlike Sapa, Ha Giang is now still untouched by mass tourism because of its high altitude ranging from 800 meters to 1200 meters above sea level. The farthest and the most amazing sight of the land is Dong Van Karst Global Geopark ” one of 77 sites with important geological and cultural heritage recognized by UNESCO. Ha Giang teems with valleys and hills where there lives a diversity of ethnic minorities, including Hmong, Tay, Dao, Nung, Lo Lo, Giay, and Pu Peo. The more you admire the sight, the more you love this tiny extraordinary world. Yet, it is hard to conquer the zigzag paths connecting the district to the province. They are sloping and craggy. It’s not even easy to get from Sapa to Ha Giang in dry weather.
