It must be a mistake if you do not visit Nho Que river in your trip to Ha Giang. The river starts in Yunnan, China and comes to meet the land of Vietnam at Seo Lung village, Lung Cu commune of Ha Giang province to continue its journey to other places. However, the most stunning landscape of the river in Vietnam belongs to its starting points where there is Tu San alley.
Long before Nho Que river was not as peaceful as it is today and the local people only saw it as a place for fishing and a source of water for culturing and daily life. However, dams were built, the flow became more tender, eventually local people started rowing service for tourists, turning the river into a place of interest and now tourist have chances to admire the deepest alley in the entire Southest Asia-the Tu San alley.
