Thái Nguyên

Thai Nguyen Province

Thái Nguyên province is landlocked, halfway between Chinese border and the Red River delta. Several mountain ranges running from south to north consist of karstified limestone. In 1996 one of the largest National Parks in the country, the Tam Đảo National Park, was established to protect the Tam Đảo mountain region. It contains over 20 peeks, between 1,300 and 1,500 m asl.
