The 185 km long “Happiness Road” starts from Ha Giang City through the Dong Van UNESCO Global Geopark to Meo Vac Town. The road was built by the shedding of sweat and blood of 1,200 local people and more than 1,000 youth volunteers from 16 ethnic groups in 8 provinces in the North, including Cao Bang, Bac Kan, Lang Son, Thai Nguyen, Tuyen Quang , Ha Giang, Nam Dinh and Hai Duong. They had to work over 5 years (10/9/1959 - 15/6/1065), with more than 2 million working days, digging, moving over 3 million m3 of rock. The section of 24km over Ma Pi Leng Pass was most blood-and-sweat-shed. When it was cleared there were 14 youth volunteers sacrificed, forever staying in the UNESCO Geopark. Like its name - "Happiness" - the road when completed bears the immense happiness of thousands of ethnic compatriots who have lived in isolation for generations in the Plateau. Starting from it, a rigorous network of branch roads gradually provide access to villages, bringing along "electricity-school-health care", improving the life of local people and brightening future of children. In commemoration and appreciation for the youth volunteers who took part in the opening of the Happiness ... View more

In commemoration and appreciation for the youth volunteers who took part in the opening of the Happiness Road, in 2017, Ha Giang province has completed construction of the Youth Monument. The work is made of carved natural stone, 12m in height or 16m including pedestal, consisting of: a main cluster of 05 characters representing the youth volunteer forces of the eight provinces, who proudly conquered Nature, opening the road to happiness; and three carved embossements expressing three contents: farewell to the loved ones for work in the frontier North; the hard work; and the victory. The Youth Monument, standing beside the Happiness Road, in harmony with the magnificent scenery, will surely stir in the hearts of visitors the pride and gratitude to the previous generations.
