Located in Lung Cu Commune – the north pole of Viet Nam, belonging to Dong Van District, Ha Giang Province, about 160km to the north-east of Ha Giang City, Lung Cu Flag Tower is built in the peak of Rong (Dragon) Mountain at an altitude of nearly 1,700m. This is the landmark with important historical significance, marking Viet Nam’s territorial sovereignty. According to the historical records, Lung Cu Flag Tower was made of more than 10m high Cunninghamia tree under Ly Dynasty in the 10th century. In 1887, the flag tower was rebuilt and expanded in scale and size. Through many times of construction and restoration, now Lung Cu Flag Tower is 33.15m in height, 3.8m in diameter. The octagonal-shaped tower body is decorated by relieves imitating patterns in Dong Son bronze drum and describing the historical periods of Viet Nam as well as cultural customs of ethnic minority people living in Ha Giang Province

After a few minutes drive from the city of Dong Van the famous road and mountain pass begins – Ma Pi Leng Pass. It’s probably one of the most beautiful roads you can ride in Vietnam. The modern history of the road started in the period between 1959-1965, when thousands of young people from 17 ethnic groups built the road, the construction process taking 11 months. Initially, the road was only for walking or horse teams, but later it was extended to cars and trucks. Hills and mountains create fantastic images but the roads are dangerous here, ride cautiously on a motorcycle.
