Embark on a Two-day Hike in Vietnam’s Remote Back Country

This two-day trail is ideal for people who want to really get away from it all and breathe in the wonders of nature in the incredible, lush green surroundings of Vietnam’s more remote regions.

It begins with a one-hour drive from Hue to Bach Ma National Park, over 22,000 hectares of evergreen forest and home to a vast variety of birdlife and the brightly coloured red-shanked douc, often referred to as the costumed ape. Visitors are given a brief introduction to the park at the visitor centre before a drive uphill along the twisting road. Then there’s a downhill walk of around 1.5km along the Five Lakes trail, followed by a very welcome picnic lunch at a natural pool. The walkers can cool off and swim in the rock pools.

The walk resumes along the streams leading to an impressive waterfall with amazing views from the summit. This is followed by a shorter hike back to the main road for a car pickup to the campsite. Here, there are surprise treats and a simple BBQ dinner by the campfire.

After camping overnight, the walkers rise early to catch the stunning sunrise and sea clouds at Seaview Summit. Then it’s time to enjoy breakfast and drive toward the Pheasant trail located at a height of 900m. This pleasant, easy walk ends at the Tri Sao Cascade waterfall, which offers pristine pure waters for a deliciously refreshing forest bath. Finally, guests are picked up and driven back to Hue City.
