Da River

Da River (Black River) is a big tributary of the Red River in Northern Vietnam. The river starts its course of over 900km in Yunnan China.

The Da River in Vietnam has the length of over 500km flowing though Lai Chau, Dien Bien, Son La, Hoa Binh and Phu Tho Provinces. The Da River rinses its water into the major brach of the Red River at Tam Nong District of Phu Tho Province (near the Trung Ha Bridge between Hanoi and Phu Tho).

 Thanks to the huge amount of water year round of the Da River, hydro-power plants were constructed at Hoa Binh and Son La. As a result, huge areas of river basins and the adjacent lands including high mountains are flooded for the reservoirs which makes the once wild beauty become more splendid. AdventureGreen offers various cruises on the Da River and the Hoa Binh Reservoirs from 1 day to 4 days.
