Cultural landscape

Nam Hong Village is a quaint village situated in the majestic landscape of Ha Giang Province, where magnificent rice terrace fields are carved from mountains, and views are unparalleled everywhere one looks. It is also home to us, the Red Dao people, an ethnic minority tribe with our own distinctive traditions and practices.

Unique culture of the Red Dao

The Red Dao are one of the 54 ethnic minority groups in Vietnam, with nearly half a million of them living here. They are well known for being skilled at foraging medicinal herbs from the forest and their unique ceremonies and rituals. Even amongst the Red Dao there is great variation between regions and villages in how their culture is being practiced today.
