The Prime Minister has issued a decision on establishing the Du Gia National Park - Dong Van Karst Plateau in northern Ha Giang province. The park merges the Du Gia Nature Reserve and the Khau Ca Species and Habitat Conservation Area.

The total area of the national park is 15,000 ha, spanning the three communes of Tung Ba (Vi Xuyen district), Minh Son (Bac Me district), and Du Gia (Yen Minh district).

The establishment of the park aims to protect the local eco-system and rare and endangered flora and fauna, preserve forests in the Gam River basin, and contribute to stabilizing agricultural and industrial production in the area.

It is also expected to help boost eco-tourism, increase awareness among local people on protecting the environment, and encourage them to join tourism promotion activities to improve their living conditions and the province’s socio-economic development.

The park also has an 8,850 ha buffer zone across six communes in the districts of Yen Minh, Bac Me, Vi Xuyen, and Quan Ba.

The Prime Minister assigned the Ha Giang Provincial People’s Committee to manage the park and design a development project for the park and its buffer zone.
