Noong Lake is located on the Tay Con Linh Mountain Range, Phu Linh Commune, Vi Xuyen District, 15km from Ha Giang. Visiting the lake, tourists not only enjoy the wild romantic beauty of nature, but also learn more about the customs, culture and daily lives of the Tay, Mong and Dao ethnic groups.
From Ha Giang, going through forests, terraced fields and hamlets of the Tay, Mong and Dao people, tourists arrive in Noong Lake that runs around the foot of Noong Mountain. This natural lake has a total area of water surface of over 20ha in dry season and 80ha in rainy season. It is surrounded by mountains and primitive forests of over 700ha. Under the sun or on moonlit nights, the lake’s water surface is twinkling and seems to be silver-inlaid. Therefore, the locals called it the forest’s “eye”.
The lake experiences two seasons, dry and rainy. The special feature of the Noong Lake is in the heart of lake, it has not also lush trees but also the dry trees that create an interesting landscape.
At the end of dry season, Noong Lake is not so big and nearly empty
In dry season when the water level is low, the locals raise ducks and geese in the lake.
In rainy season, the water of Noong Lake rises high so tourists can go sightseeing using a dugout around the lake. In this season (April to October), the water level rises, the total area of the lake is about 80ha. This is also an appropriate time to fish.
On rainy season, the trees was so beautiful in the water with the morning cloud
The locals’ life is very simple. Everyday they catch fish together on the lake and their laughter echo in the area.

Fishing by net
On dry season, the water was too shallow so the raft that local people used to take people to the lake just turned to be the hut for children to study.
