VTV.vn - Non Nuoc Cao Bang received global geopark status from UNESCO at a ceremony held in the northern border province of Cao Bang on November 24.

The geopark is home to fossils, ocean sediment, volcanic rocks, minerals, and karst landscapes, which are able to 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.

Speaking at the ceremony, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc stressed the importance of the UNESCO recognition, saying that it means Vietnam has another national trademark in terms of landscape and geology at an international level.

It is now the second UNESCO-recognised Global Geopark in Vietnam after Dong Van Karst Plateau, which was accredited in 2010. The park is also the eighth of its kind in Southeast Asia to receive the status.
