The Mong ethnic minority people in the north will hold their first ever panpipe festival in the mountainous province of Ha Giang on Aug. 21 and 22.
About 300 local people and artists are expected to perform at the event, which is among a series of activities to mark the 120 th founding anniversary of Ha Giang province.
The festival will coincide with other cultural and tourist activities to promote landscapes in the province, especially the Dong Van Stone Plateau.
The Dong Van Stone Plateau was recognised as the first geopark in Vietnam and the second in Southeast Asia by the Global Network of National Geoparks (GGN) in October last year. It covers a total area of nearly 2,400 sq.m. and houses 34 percent of the province’s population.
