The journey by river from Cho Ra to Ba Be lake is beautiful, passing through a natural tunnel, and among steep cliffs covered from the base to the top with luxuriant vegetation. On the way, there is also an interesting market set right in the middle of the fields, frequented, like the Cho Ra market, by many ethnic minorities. However, that's a long trip that will take more than half a day. If you can arrange it, it would be preferable to return by the road from Ba Be lake, since the return trip upriver is even longer.
