There will be a Kayak and a SUP (racing paddle board) race on iconic Nho Que River.

Visitors can also enjoy the view of a floral road on the ancient street of Dong Van as well as various folk games of ethnic minorities, sports events and traditional cuisine.

Buckwheat flowers in Dong Van Karst Plateau Geopark have become a tourist icon of Ha Giang Province. Not only are they used as a traditional food by ethnic people, the flowers of the grain also bring a poetic beauty, creating a unique feature in the mountainous highlands.
