Experience the beauty of Bach Ma National Park as you journey around the bustling city of Hoi An and discover the city’s rich historical and cultural heritage.
Day 1 - Hue / Bach Ma Nat’s
You will start your journey and depart at 12:00 P.M sharp so make sure you have had an early and fulfilling lunch before you begin your trip as there will be no lunch stop along the way. First up on the itinerary is a short car ride to Bach Ma National Park, a scenic stop located approximately 32 km to the South of Hue city. Its beautiful and colourful flora makes for a perfect destination for nature lovers. Its distance from the city also allows for tranquillity to permeate the area. You will find yourself lost in the sheer beauty of the place as you make your way around the park. The National Park also includes lush and pristine primary forest, a prime destination for some good hiking, trekking and camping outdoors. There are also lots of rare wild animals, including birds and monkeys. This makes the park a perfect place for some bird watching and jungle exploration activities.
As you reach the top of Bach Ma mountain, gaze across the stunning view of Hue city and Lang Co Beach far in the horizon. Breathe in the fresh air and experience the wondrous view from the top of the mountain all culminating in an unforgettable memory. Afterwards, you will start your 2 hours’ trek to the Five Lakes (and a possibly a swim as well). These include the beautiful Ba Lake as well. Swim across the cool emerald water and be stunned by the clarity of the lake water itself. There will also be waterfalls and other crystalline lakes for you to swim in. So bring your favourite swimsuit and get pumped up for your multiple dips into the refreshing natural water. You will also be visiting the beautiful Du Quyen waterfall where you will have the chance to abseil down the upper section of the fall. Alternatively, you can also walk down to the bottom of the fall and catch the full fantastic view of the raging water as you spend time swimming in the stream.
After some exciting swim and relaxation at Du Quyen waterfall, we will walk along the trails to our campsite and set up the camp for the night. Enjoy your dinner in the natural surrounding as you look up the beautiful night sky and listen to the sound of nature. For those who do not wish to stay in the tent, a small guesthouse accommodation can also be provided upon request.
Day 2 - Bach Ma Nat’s / Da Nang / Hoi An
Wake up, wrap your tent and start your morning exercise with an easy trek. Keep quiet as you walk through the prime spot for your bird watching experience. Look around and you might just get a glimpse of pigeons, bulbuls, parakeets, kingfishers and jungle fowl flying around the area. This is the perfect spot for some quick pictures before you continue your way to your breakfast at the restaurant.
Finishing your breakfast, it is time to leave Bach Ma and head toward Hoi An. Along the way, you will also stop by Lang Co beach, a place with a stunning view and a destination dubbed as one of the most beautiful beaches in Asia. With over 10 km of white sand, the vast blue ocean water and the thick rainforests on the mountains paint an almost ethereal picture of the surrounding area. For you sports lovers out there, you will be glad to hear that Lang Co Beach has been identified as an ideal destination for some good scuba diving. Gear up and dive down the beautiful ocean as you discover the rich marine life of Lang Co Beach. After spending some time at the beach, you will continue to Hai Van pass for another wonderful sight. The Hai Van pass connecting Hue to Da Nang city is one of the most exciting and scenic hillside roads in Vietnam. With its sharp curves, blind corners and amazing views, Hai Van’s adventurous route is sure to make you tremble with excitement and awe. We will stop at the top to see the old war battlements and bunkers and learn more about the fascinating history and importance of Hai Van pass.
Afterwards, you will continue with your journey to Da Nang. Along the way, you will get to visit Cham Museum where the culture and different historical collection of Cham people are on full display. Cham Museum itself follows the architectural style of the ancient Champa dynasty - blocks of white buildings decorated with simple yet elegant patterns. Even decades after its extinction, the past influence of the Champa dynasty at Vietnam’s central regions is still heavily prominent and evident today. The Cham Museum captures this very history of the dynasty and tells the story long forgotten on how the dynasty used to flourish and how it eventually fell. Nowadays, the museum exhibits a total of approximately 300 original sculptures which are mostly made of sandstone and others made of terracotta.
Your last destination for the day is the Marble Mountain. In Vietnamese, it is known as Ngu Hanh Son or The Five Element Mountain. These elements stand for the five basic material believed to have constructed the universe: metal, wood, fire, water and earth. Stepping on the old rocky steps, you could still feel the hundred-year-old statues whispering stories of the old days and how it has changed today. Cave entrances and tunnels sprawl across the mountain and make for a wonderful sight. Several Buddhist sanctuaries can also be found in the mountains, giving further uniqueness to this famous tourist destination. At the feet of the mountains is a village that has preserved the art of marble sculpture for over 300 years. You will get to see the beautiful work of art and even purchase some as souvenirs.
Then, wrap up your day and head to your hotel where you will arrive at around 5:00 P.M.
