What to visit in Ba Vi National Park
Thien Son Waterfall & Waterpark: With its natural treasures of large waterfall, lakes and water park, Thien Son – Suoi Nga tourism area has become a favorite tourist attraction to go swimming, go fishing, go camping and relax in villas built on stilts. It is located on the east side of the Ba Vi Mountain Range. To get there, you drive to the entrance of the park, however, instead of going inside, continue driving to the left of the entrance. It costs 150,000VND to get into the tourism and water park area.
Cactus Garden: It is where up to 1,200 cactus species are planted and preserved. The ecosystem here is rigidly protected, offering an abundance of colorful cactus flowers that you have never seen in other places.
French ruins: Ba Vi was used as a holiday resort during the French colonization in the 19th century. Nowadays, there are many ruins of these resort scattering throughout Ba Vi Mountain Range. Covered by moss layers, these French ruins can offer you a lot of nice photos.
The first set of French ruins you may encounter while driving up the mountain inside the park is the French Summer Camp, followed by The Old Church and the French Military Zone. It’s better if you park your bike and walk up to The Old Church as the road is very steep. The hike could be tiring but the church is gorgeous and well-worth your effort.
Trekking to the summits of the mountain: There are 3 peaks in Ba Vi Mountain Range that any trekker desires to conquer once visiting there, including the King Peak, Tan Vien Peak and Ngoc Hoa Peak.
King Peak: The highest summit at 1,296m where you have a chance to trek through the majestic landscape of the whole park, pay a visit to Temple President Ho Chi Minh on the top point and stand astounded by the magnificent view of surrounding areas from Bao Thien Power.
Tan Vien Peak: At the height of 1,226m, Tan Vien Peak is where you can visit the Upper Temple worshipping the God of Ba Vi Mountain Range, one of The Four Immortals in traditional Vietnamese mythology.
Ngoc Hoa Peak: The third highest summit at 1,131m, famous for Tieu Dong Peak and Old Green Cypress Populations.
These peaks are usually covered with fogs and clouds and you will be challenged with steep slopes as well as slippery jungle roads while trekking downhill through the jungle. In case you haven’t had trekking experienced yet, you’d better take a Ba Vi Trekking Tour to get a good care during the journey.
Tips for trekking in Ba Vi National Park
Hire an experienced guide: Getting a trekking tour guide is essential as they have in-depth knowledge of the route and know the ideal places for unique sceneries.

Plan a Ba Vi trekking tour in advance: Actually, before any tour, you should find information about the destination which you will visit and trek. The weather in the jungle could be unpredictable. As of that, you’d better check the forecast to decide your trekking tour duration and consider to have a picnic in Ba Vi Jungle or not. We highly recommend you to plan your trekking tour at least 1 week in advance, as you will have enough time to prepare all necessary items as well as a good health.
