Na Hang promotes sustainable development of green tourism

TQO - With its rich potential in terms of natural landscapes and the traditional culture of its ethnic communities, Na Hang District in the northern province of Tuyen Quang is looking towards developing green tourism to attract more visitors.

Na Hang certainly has great potential for tourism development. Covering more than 8,000 hectares, Na Hang Eco Lake links waterways from Na Hang Town with eight communes in the district’s C area and communes of Lam Binh District, while connecting with Bac Kan Province’s Ba Be national scenic area.

The Na Hang Nature Reserve contains over 33,000 hectares across the communes of Thanh Tuong, Son Phu, Khau Tinh and Con Lon, and Na Hang Town, adjacent to some communes of Tuyen Quang’s Chiem Hoa and Lam Binh Districts and Bac Kan’s Cho Don District. It features more than 21,000 hectares of special-use forests with magnificent natural scenery and a high level of biodiversity.

Pac Ban Waterfall in Na Hang Town is an attractive destination for many tourists.

In addition, the reserve boasts over 2,000 plant species, including rare and valuable ones such as Dinh, Mun (ebony trees), and Sen (bassia). It is also home to many animal species including tigers, panthers, flying lemurs, flying squirrels, bears, antelopes, deers, apes, and snub-nosed monkies.

In recent years, Na Hang tourism has been advertised on Vietnam Television (VTV) channels via many fascinating programmes such as “S Vietnam”, “The charm of the pear blooming season in Hong Thai”, and “The singing in compatriots’ heart”, contributing to attracting a large crowd of domestic and foreign tourists to the locale.

The district is expected to draw over 170,000 visitors in 2020, with social revenue from tourism reaching more than VND135 billion (US$5.8 million). The Tuyen Quang Provincial People’s Committee is now coordinating with the People’s Committee of Bac Kan Province to file a dossier requesting UNESCO recognition of the Ba Be-Na Hang-Lam Binh nature reserve as a world natural heritage site.
