Visit Na Hang Lake – A Secret Getaway Of Tuyen Quang
Na Hang Lake is located in the center of Na Hang District, more than 100 kilometers from Tuyen Quang City to the north. With more than 8,000 hectares of water surface, the lake is surrounded by poetic and majestic landscapes, making it an attractive tourist attraction for visitors from both home and abroad.
Na Hang Lake is the confluence of the Gam and Nang rivers. The meeting venue of the two rivers is Pac Ta mountain, the highest mountain in the district. At the foot of the mountain stands Pac Ta temple, which worships a concubine of General Tran Nhat Duat from the 13th century.

One of the most spectacular waterfalls in the area is Khuoi Nhi, which is akin to white silk across the cliff as seen from afar.
Legend has it that Khuoi Nhi waterfall is traced to the story of a young couple who loved each other but could not be together. When they were separated, the lady looked for the young man but could not find him. She was so desperate that she turned into a waterfall.
When it is seen from above, the waterfall looks like a young woman's hair falling on the surface of a calm lake. This is one of the most attractive destinations at the Na Hang-Lam Binh tourist complex for tourists to discover in their journeys.

Aside from providing long-term food storage, this method also adds a special flavor to the dishes.
