Bach Ma National Park
Early morning departure from Hue for a 2-hour drive to Bach Ma National Park. With an area of 22,031ha (85 sq mi), steep mountains and dense forests, the area is home to a wide variety of animals and plants. At the base of the mountains, there is a tropical monsoon forest whilst above 900m (2,953ft) the forest becomes sub-tropical. In French colonial times, the area was a popular hill station for members of the colonial administration.
Meet a local forest expert who will share his passion for the area’s fauna and flora with you on a 3hr, 8km (5miles) hike along sub-tropical forest trails. Visit magnificent Ngu Ho Lake and Do Quyen Waterfall. The Ngu Ho (“Five Lakes”) Cascade is a series of small waterfalls which crash down into pristine pools of clear water secluded under a canopy of foliage.
After a picnic lunch, ascend to the peak, 1,450m (4,757ft) above sea level and enjoy the spectacular view overlooking the lagoons of Tam Giang and Lang Co Beach. Continue hiking along sub-tropical evergreen forest trails and visit the Orchid Collection House before hiking back down the mountain where transfer back to Hue awaits.
