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. The park itself consists of three zones, namely the highly protected Core area, administrative area, and a buffer zone. One of the most popular spots on the tourist itineraries, it can be accessed by road - on two-wheelers as well as on foot.

Surrounded by lush green trees, planted by the French, Bach Ma has also got some beautiful and enchanting waterfalls. It is no surprise then, that the park used to be a hill station for the European conquerors. Situated in the valley created by Annamite mountains, its biodiversity includes over 350 bird species and 132 species of mammals. This park offers some interesting natural trails to explore as well. It is also a centre of ecotourism and has an added advantage of being close to Vietnam’s world heritage sites.

More on Bach Ma National Park

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.

  • The road to the National Park from Hue is quite treacherous and in the rainy season, fog and mist can play havoc. Make sure you go in a sturdy vehicle.
  • It is recommended to not take children below 5 years to this place, as the weather here is quite notorious.
  • One must carry light clothes and a thin jacket along, as there are four seasons in one day.
  • Hiring a guide is highly recommended.

  • For adults over 16 years: 60,000 dongs
  • For children, students: 30,000 dongs
  • Children under 5 years: free
  • A French or English speaking guide can be hired at a cost of 1,50,000 dongs/ day
