Situated at an altitude of nearly 700m above sea level, and covered with clouds around the year, Lung Van is the centre of five upland communes of Tan Lac district. It has great potential and advantages for promoting tourism development.

It boasts numerous heritage featuring Muong ethnic people’s culture identities such as Mo Muong culture heritage, Muong gong, handicraft products, traditional festivals and folk games.

Lung Van is an attractive destination for community-based tours. It has the provincial road 440 linking to localities with tourism potential including communes of Quyet Chien, Nam Son, Bac Son, Ngo Luong in Tan Lac district; Pu Bin and Noong Luong communes in Mai Chau district; and tourism sites in Bac Thuoc district of the north central province of Thanh Hoa. 

Besides, Lung Van boasts a system of caves and old stilt houses. 

During the trip, participants visited several projects of tourism development.

Representatives from FLC hoped to cooperate with the locality in developing tourism, especially community-based tourism, while calling on the local authority to work well on management, and pay attention to improving the quality of tourism services. 

Training courses should be arranged for local households which are supplying homestay services for tourists, helping them collect experience in this field, they said.

Action on Poverty in Vietnam pledged to send experts to Lung Van to support the building of tourism development plans for the locality.

Speaking at the working session with the delegation, Vice Secretary of the provincial Party Committee and Chairman of the provincial People’s Council Tran Dang Ninh asked Tan Lac authority to swiftly outline a project to promote tourism development in upland communes, focusing on encouraging local household to provide homestay services. 

Tourism activities must ensure the preservation of typical culture and environmental protection, he noted.
