4.1 Day 1: Lao Cai City – Ha Giang City – Quan Ba

We woke up early in morning. We went out for breakfast. At 6:30 am, a bus arrived, there was only this bus to go from Lao Cai City to Ha Giang city, so it was quite crowded. On the bus, I saw the life of the people in Ha Giang is so poor, some areas still have not the electric system.
At 11:30 am, we got to Ha Giang City, the girls called the motorbike jobber to pick us up. We met a guy who had just finished his journey when we arrived at the motorbike jobber’s home. That guy spent a week to go Quan Ba – Yen Minh – Dong Van. He told us that the road was terrible, we could see a lot of dust cover on his face.
We hire motorbikes. Left our identification card and hiring fee. After that, we found a local restaurant for lunch.

Hiring fee is 200.000 VND per day for motorbike in Ha Giang. I tested to see how they were. – adventure Ha Giang

The area near Quan Ba Sky gate, behind me is “Happy road” – adventure Ha Giang

We kept moving to Quan Ba, about 5 pm, we stop by Tam Son town. We went around the town. There were some caves that I want to see closer, but the girls didn’t. It was getting dark.

On the way, we encountered Thach Son Than blocks – a large rocks which have been a special form by weather. It also had a story about that.
