Seo Ho hydropower plant, or "Seo Ho PAT pumping station", opposite Dong Van Town on the other side of Ma U summit, is an interesting site in the Dong Van UNESCO Global Geopark. As this small, low-capacity plant is no longer necessary while meeting the water demand remains very acute, the Vietnamese and German partners have applied a unique technology to turn it into a non-electric PAT-based (Pump And Turbine) pumping station to pump water to the top of Ma U summit, at the height difference of nearly 700m, which basically solves the problem of water supply for Dong Van Town and some neighboring villages. The Seo Ho PAT pumping station consists of two PAT pumps located at the old Seo Ho plant, a water tank of about 200m3 on Ma U, a 2.5 km long pressure pipe connecting PAT pumps and the tank and a distribution pipe system to supply water from the tank to the users. The existing inlet system was also renovated to get water from Khe Lia to supply 02 PAT pumps.

Seo Ho hydropower plant, or "Seo Ho PAT pumping station", opposite Dong Van Town on the other side of Ma U summit, is an interesting site in the Dong Van UNESCO Global Geopark. As this small, low-capacity plant is no longer necessary while meeting the water demand remains very acute, the Vietnamese and German partners have applied a unique technology to turn it into a non-electric PAT-based (Pump And Turbine) pumping station to pump water to the top of Ma U summit, at the height difference of nearly 700m, which basically solves the problem of water supply for Dong Van Town and some neighboring villages. The Seo Ho PAT pumping station consists of two PAT pumps located at the old Seo Ho plant, a water tank of about 200m3 on Ma U, a 2.5 km long pressure pipe connecting PAT pumps and the tank and a distribution pipe system to supply water from the tank to the users. The existing inlet system was also renovated to get water from Khe Lia to supply 02 PAT pumps. The water inlet to these pumps will be partly diverted to run the turbines, and in turns, the pumps, while the remaining, as the pumps rotate, will be pushed up the pressure pipe onto the Ma U water tank. The advanced PAT technology is very suitable for mountainous areas of Vietnam and the Ha Giang Province People Committee intends to replicate this model in a hope to essentially solve the problem of clean water supply for local people and tourists to the UNESCO Geopark. It is possible to visit the "Seo Ho PAT pumping station" by at least three routes, of which the one via Thien Huong village to the observation point is most convenient, wherefrom one can observe the Khe Lia panorama and the pumping station, go down to the pumping station or go up to the Ma U water tank. In addition, along this road visitors may get astonished because of the beauty of the peak-cluster depression landform, looking down a giant and deep depression from near the top of a peak to find out a populous village with intensive terraced fields and gardens at its bottom
