Map of Hà Giang province & our route

The route we traveled: starting from Hà Giang city -> Quản Bạ -> Yên Minh -> Phố Cáo -> Sủng Là -> Đồng Văn old town -> Lũng Cú (the northernmost point of Vietnam) -> Mapileng pass -> Mèo Vạc -> back to Yên Minh -> Quản Bạ -> Hà Giang city. The other side (Trung Quốc) is China. There is no direct way from Mèo Vạc to Hà Giang so you must go back to Yên Minh.
