Black River

With its source in the Yunnan mountains in China, the Black River (song Da) carves out a deep canyon through the northwest corner of Vietnam, a region dominated by peaks of over 2 000m. At Muong Lay, the gorge crosses that of the nam Na. A dam is planned for the Na river, which will flood the region, but for now this remains the most spectacular region of the Upper Tonkin, which is home to the five linguistic families of Vietnam.
