Some of the tribes you may encounter on a visit to the Northeast are the Tay, Nung, Zao, H'mong, and the San Chi tribes. Farther away in Ha Giang province, there are a variety of hill tribes numbering from several thousand members to only a few hundred people.

Northwest of Hanoi toward the Chinese border lies the roof of Vietnam – the Hoang Lien Son Range (christened the Tonkinese Alps), with Mount Fansipan, the highest peak of Vietnam (3,143m). Forbidding and unforgiving terrain for lowlanders, the mountains have long been a haven for an eclectic mix of hill tribes.  Limestone largely comprises this frontier where dramatic hills rise from the plains. The Northwest offers captivating mountain scenery, you can hike or trek into valleys around key towns.
