Ha Giang – the northernmost province of Vietnam. A land of extremely picturesque scenery of limestone pinnacles, shrouded clouds, emerald rivers and peaceful villages. This was always the last frontier for the adventurous travelers. And Ha Giang is a challenge, but well-worth destination for photographers who aim to capture the beauty of life in the mountains of Vietnam.
Recent infrastructure improvements have drawn more people in, but Ha Giang is still a far away land for most city people. Thanks to this, Ha Giang is a place to photograph the pristine scenery and colorful local life. Most of the locals are the H’mong, who live in their earthen-wall houses, dressed in their traditional costumes and join the weekly mountain markets.
