Famous for its 9 tight curves, Tham Ma certainly has more twists and turns than your life!. It is a dream for riders all over the world. It looks like a python sleeping under the fog blanket. Tham Ma slope is easier to deal with on sunny days but it looks even more mysterious and beguiling without the sunshine. It should be fine for even amateur scooter riders if they ride slowly and attentively. Good front lights and horns will come in handy on foggy days.

Unlike most people think, the northernmost point of Vietnam is not Lung Cu flag pole but a remote observation deck, which is approximately 30 minutes riding from the flagpole.
Lung Cu is located in Dong Van, 200km from the center of Ha Giang Borough with a natural area of 3,460 hectares.
The old stone field of Nam Dan was discovered in 2004 by scientists from the Institute of Archeology and the Ha Giang Museum.
