ATK Bac Kan - a safe place to survive

ATK (Vietnamese name An Toan Khu) means a place which is safe in the war. Vietnam is experiencing great development over the years and ATK Bac Kan does not stand out of this trend. Now ATK Bac Kan is a popular historical tourist site and the life there is much more better than that in the past.

"An Toan Khu", meaning "safe zone" - Constructed during the revolution against the French, ATK is a complex of underground tunnels and rooms emboldened by a missile defense system in Cho Don (Bac Kan). This unique and invincible complex was one of the most important venues of the Vietnam Army from 1946 to 1954, where President Ho Chi Minh and many other leaders gathered, discussed and made vital decision involving the destiny of the nation.

The Bac Kan town is 170 kilometers away from Ha Noi towards the north, about 200 kilometers away from Viet Nam – China border along the National Route 3 connects Ha Noi, Bac Kan, Cao Bang to Border gates with China. This is the important traffic route for social and economic exchange of Bac Kan with Ha Noi and other surrounding provinces.
