Cát Tiên National Park is located in the Southern region of Vietnam. It’s approximately 150 kilometres away from Ho Chi Minh City and covers around 720 square-kilometres of the few surviving tropical lowlands of Vietnam. The national park is home to exquisite flora and fauna such as the golden-cheeked gibbon and many types of tropical birds. The diversity is depicted by the fact that the overall habitats have been divided into five categories by the authorities.
Cat Tien National Park has two segments, namely Cat Loc to the north side and Nam Cat Tien towards the eastern half, which is often visited and contains the Park headquarters. The Park has an area of about 720 sq.km. and is located in three provinces: Dong Nai, Lam Dong and Binh Phuoc. Cát Tiên National Park was protected initially in 1978 as two sectors: Nam Cat Tien and Tay Cat Tien. One more sector, Cat Loc, was gazetted as a rhinoceros reserve in 1992 when there was a discovery of a population of the Vietnamese Javan rhinoceros. The park is quite famous for the scope of adventure activities that it offers as well as for sightings of bears as well as the Wild Gibbon.
