Dong Cao Bac Giang

Dong Cao Camping - 2 Days

Dong Cao is a pasture on the altitude of over 600m above sea level in Son Dong District, Bac  Giang Province. The area around Dong Cao is inhabited by the Tay and Dao ethnic groups. Dong Cao offers spectacular photography opportunities, fresh campsites for relaxing weekend holidays. Dong Cao by far is only popular among young Vietnamese travelers and rarely visited by foreign visitors.

Morning in Dong CaoAdventureGreen organizes trips to Dong Cao for fans of eco-tourism and adventure travel. We hope to assist our travelers with new travel style getting lost in pristine natural beauties. Please be informed that there are no tourist facilities in Dong Cao now. Bathrooms and toilets are available in local families only and they are in rudimentary conditions.

On this adventure, we have to bring along camping gears and cooking utensils,... and we have to hire local porters to assist with these things to the campsite from the village. In the case you want to reduce the trip costs by sharing some of the jobs, please let us know when requesting the tour.

The trip can be extended for 1-2 extra nights so that you can go further and explore the Khe Ro Forest (10km from Dong Cao). It is also convenient to travel further to Halong Bay then return to Hanoi which takes at least another night.
