The Đồng Văn Karst Plateau Geopark
Located over 1,000 meters above sea level the Đồng Văn Karst Plateau with narrow valleys and high rocky mountain ranges up to 2000 meters above sea level. Over 80 percent of the surface in the area is covered with limestone. Fossils found here date back from 400 to 600 million years ago.
