Ban Gioc waterfalls in Trung Khanh commune, Cao Bang province is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Vietnam. The waterfalls are located within the Non Nuoc Cao Bang Geopark, which has been recognized as a global geopark by the UNESCO.

The geopark is home to fossils, ocean sediment, volcanic rocks, minerals, and especially karst landscapes, which can give researchers an insight into an over-500-million-year history of the Earth. It is also well known for rich biodiversity and many indigenous fauna and flora species.

According to the Cao Bang provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the province will carry out three tourism routes in the geopark area so as to attract more tourists.

This is the second UNESCO-recognised Global Geopark in Vietnam after Dong Van Karst Plateau, which was recognized in 2010.

Non Nuoc Cao Bang was established in 2015. In November 2016, Cao Bang submitted a dossier to UNESCO to seek the global geopark recognition. A survey team of UNESCO came to the province in July 2017 to make an assessment of the park’s values and conservation work.
