Goats fighting contest – a unique playing field on Dong Van Plateau will also be organized in the framework of the Tourism Week of Khau Vai Love Market 2012. Previously, ethnic minority people in Ha Giang used to grow goats for the purpose of increasing production, serving the daily living conditions for the people. However, at present, the mountainous goats are nurtured and cared thoroughly to become “mountainous combatant”. This is a community cultural entertainment in the spring, when the farmers can exchange experiences and skills in growing and breeding goats.
