In Pac Bo, Uncle Ho built, organized and led the revolutionary movement of Vietnam.

Located just more than 50km off Cao Bang city, the Pac Bo National Special Relic Site in Pac Bo village, Truong Ha commune, Quang Ha district, is a tourist destination of both domestic and international visitors.

For Vietnamese people, visiting Pac Bo gives them an opportunity to return to the roots to learn more about the glorious tradition of the nation and to express a token of gratitude to their beloved Uncle Ho for his great contributions to the nation.

For international visitors, visiting Pac Bo offers them a chance to experience miracles and surprises that in a very difficult condition in a deep forest and cave, President Ho Chi Minh could organize and direct successfully the Vietnamese revolution.

Here are some photos of the relic site taken by reporter Hoang Ha.

An orchard named after Uncle Ho. Four kinds of trees in the orchard have close links with Uncle Ho. Leaves of guava trees were used for water; leaves and flowers of pommelo trees were used for treatments while Uncle Ho was ill; mango and star apple trees, both are typical fruit trees of the South where Uncle Ho departed from while trying to find the way to save the country and where Uncle Ho always looked towards when his country was separated
