The northern border province of Lang Son boasts a wealth of stunning landscapes, including the historic Chi Lang Pass, the enigmatic Devil’s Eye Arch, and captivating mountain ranges. A visit to Co Huong, Tham Na, and Suoi Ma villages in Chi Lang District, situated at 1,200 to 1,400 meters above sea level, allows tourists to immerse themselves in the vast native upland meadows. These meadows have long been home to Tay and Nung ethnic communities who have raised goats and horses there, earning Chi Lang the nickname “the kingdom of horses” in Vietnam.

The tranquil scenery is perfect for tourists to embark on trekking adventures, exploring nature, and indulging in local culture and cuisine.
