Bach Ma National Park Tourism

Bach Ma National park is a verdant paradise, located about an hour-and-a-half drive away from the city of Hue. Home to a varied range of flora and fauna with about 358 bird species, it is also proclaimed to be one of the wettest areas in Vietnam.
One of the most popular spots on the tourist itineraries, it can be accessed by road - on two-wheelers as well as on foot. The tickets for the park range between 10,000 - 20,000 VND for kids and adults respectively.

Surrounded by lush green trees, it was used by the French as a hill station as it provided a cooler and more pleasant climate as compared to the coast. It still has some villas and trails, the ruins of which were discovered as recently as 1991.

The park was so named after the Bach Ma Mountain that rises to a height of 1450 ft and thus, it also offers some interesting natural trails for avid hikers. A centre of ecotourism, Bach Ma National Park has an added advantage of being close to Vietnam’s world heritage sites.

Bach Ma National Park was initially a summer resort made by the French. The area approximately had 139 villas which were demolished during the War. In 1991, Bach Ma National Park was officially founded and again declared as one of the major natural reserves of Vietnam. Not alien to the history of war and bloodshed that is omnipresent in Vietnam, Bach Ma also saw some heavy fighting in the early years of 1950. As soon as the country regained its independence, the national park was abandoned and today a few walls of the ghost villas still stand amid the refreshing green escapes.
