Ba Vi National Park

48km far from the center, Ba Vi National Park is one of Vietnam’s most famous areas of outstanding natural beauty, and is centered around a three-peaked mountain jutting steeply out of the landscape. The national park offers a great escape from the city with cool fresh mountain air in a mystical atmospheric backdrop of clouds, jungle and tropical rainforest. There is also a spa resort nestled at the foot of the mountain offering a host of natural therapies in an absolutely stunning setting.

The three mountain summits are Dinh Vua which is the highest at 1,296m, Tan Vien which is 1,226m and Ngoc Hoa the smallest at 1,131m. Together they form a three humped crest which is often obscured by clouds at the highest point due to the varied climate at the park. Pilgrims and tourists alike usually make the walk to the summit of the Tan Vien peak where an 11th sacred century shrine stands in memory of the Mountain God.

There are also superb tropical forest views and vistas all the way to Hanoi to be enjoyed from this peak. The fast-flowing Da River is located on one side of the national park; there are also several streams running through the park. There are falls, an old church, and many old buildings. If you want to go for a hiking adventure, Ba Vi mountain is a very good choice. The view is great, the road is not too hard to go, and I promise when you climb to the top of the mountain, you will find that it is amazing. You will need to rent a bike or take a bus/taxi to the mountain and then continue walking to the top.

There’s an orchid garden and a bird garden, and hiking opportunities through the forested slopes.

A temple dedicated to Ho Chi Minh sits at the mountain’s summit (1276m) – it’s a difficult but beautiful 30-minute climb up 1229 steps through the trees. Fog often shrouds the peak, but despite the damp and mist it’s eerily atmospheric – visit between April and December for the best chance of clear views down to the Red River valley and Hanoi in the distance. My suggestion here is that you should take 2 days in Ba Vi to explore all the beautiful view and try some delicious local food. There are also many resorts that are located in Ba Vi mountain while the price is not very expensive. You can try to stay there.
