  • Ba Be National Park in Bac Kan Province is known for forested imposing mountains, serene lakes and rivers, and genuine local ethnic people. The national park is a good place to get relaxed amid untouched nature and far from the crowd. Ba Be National Park is 210km via Dinh Hoa (Thai Nguyen) and Cho Don (Bac Kan) and 230km via Bac Kan City. The former route is with small roads and nice countryside scenery and less traveled while the latter is with excellent road with panoramas of the mountains along the way.

  • It was autumn in northern Vietnam and for a few days recently it had been wet. The northeasterly monsoon blew again making daily temperatures much lower in Hanoi. In the mountains, it must have been chilly and cold now. Work had been busy and I was desperate for a short break. It was no fun traveling in so wet weather anyway.
