The Nho Quế River Viewpoint is one of Hà Giang’s most famous attractions; but the best way to see it comes with a climb. The sky path is a steep, small road that snakes uphill through Flower H’mong villages, before curving up the side of the mountain to the neighbouring peak. Prepare sturdy shoes for the hike on the sky path, which covers a total of 500 metres on a breathtaking two-hour walk. The views along the way are unlike any other, overlooking mountain ranges, the Nho Quế River and the historic Happiness Road, which took 1,300 volunteers seven years to build.
TIP: If you’re looking for more great panoramic vistas, try the 20-minute hike from Đồng Văn to Đồn Cao Fortress.
