The observation point for Khe Lia Panorama is located at the junction to Dong Van Town, the Vuong Palace and the Lung Cu Flag Tower. In the middle of sky and earth, looking up are still high peaks with the road zigzagging upward, looking down are wide and deep depressions but still with villages, gardens and terraces at their bottom... Nearby are the sides of karst cones where are exposed only tiny and sharp pinnacles - a type of rock forest or rock desert. Afar off and higher are vertical cliffs, on top of which one can still surprisingly see some smaller karst cones. A magnificent spectacle, not to mention the Mia Le and Khe Lia canyons, which connect each with other only by the saddle where we are standing. The Mia Le stream along a northwest-southeast fault when reaching here disappears into ground in the system of three consecutive caves, resurging at the Khe Lia stream in a northeast-southwest direction, before joining the Nho Que River at about 2km downstream. Being 500-600m at the deepest, the Khe Lia canyon in terms of majesty is probably just second to the Tu San canyon along the Nho Que River at Ma ... View more

The observation point for Khe Lia Panorama is located at the junction to Dong Van Town, the Vuong Palace and the Lung Cu Flag Tower. In the middle of sky and earth, looking up are still high peaks with the road zigzagging upward, looking down are wide and deep depressions but still with villages, gardens and terraces at their bottom... Nearby are the sides of karst cones where are exposed only tiny and sharp pinnacles - a type of rock forest or rock desert. Afar off and higher are vertical cliffs, on top of which one can still surprisingly see some smaller karst cones. A magnificent spectacle, not to mention the Mia Le and Khe Lia canyons, which connect each with other only by the saddle where we are standing. The Mia Le stream along a northwest-southeast fault when reaching here disappears into ground in the system of three consecutive caves, resurging at the Khe Lia stream in a northeast-southwest direction, before joining the Nho Que River at about 2km downstream. Being 500-600m at the deepest, the Khe Lia canyon in terms of majesty is probably just second to the Tu San canyon along the Nho Que River at Ma Pi Leng Pass. Yet it has its own distinctive features. It is possible to explore the Khe Lia Panorama and Seo Ho hydropower plant with at least three routes, but from this observation point, and if interested in the diversity of geoheritage, the most convenient way is to go along Khe Lia itself. Right at the next junction in the direction to Dong Van Town are a chain of three caves with underground flow, followed by an outcrop of fresh gabbro-diabase (site 32), which represents a series of similar exposures nearby. The path to Seo Ho hydropower plant (site 31) dissects the geological structure perpendicularly, so visitors will be able to explore the stratotype cross-section of several rock units formed c.400-270 million years ago, which were studied by French geologists in the early 20th century
