With a height of 1,487m above the sea level and a temperate climate, Ba Na Mountain is a real treasure of Vietnam. Only a 50km drive from Danang city to the West, tourists in Vietnam travel can reach one of the most spectacular sights that is Ba Na.

As not far from Danang city, only about 50km to the west, tourists in Vietnam travel can finally reach one of the most spectacular sights you would have ever visited. With a height of 1,487 meters above the sea lever and a temperate climate, Ba Na Mountain is a real treasure of the country.

For many reasons, travelers joining tours in Vietnam come to Ba Na, but no one can deny that the rejuvenating atmosphere and the wonderful scenery of Ba Na influence them the most when deciding to come to this unique land. To get to the top of Ba Na Mountain, tourists would have to conquer a 15-kilometer zigzag road if they visited some years ago (the topography there is pretty flat like a mini highland, luckily!).

Nowadays, as the longest cable car system in the world has been constructed there, no one have to bear the long and taunting 15-kilometer trip anymore. You can still do if you happen to be an adventurer, but it is highly recommended that you take the cable car.

The reason is not for safety, of course but you will gain the rewarding experience of looking over a huge scenery of Danang City, VungThung bay, Hai Van Pass, Son Tra Peninsula, My Khe Beach, Marble Mountain and Thu Bon River, Cu Lao Cham Island. In only a ride, you will witness a like-no-other Fengshui picture.

Each of the four seasons appears within a single day in Ba Na: spring in the morning, summer at noon, autumn in the afternoon and winter at night. One particular characteristic is that the clouds are at the mid-height of the mountain, so the peaks are always clear. Ba Na also possesses very beautiful forests with green pine hills.

Moreover, Ba Na has a diverse ecosystem, including primitive jungles which are home to 256 animal species and 543 plants species, eco-tourism has developed there for a long time. Particularly, many villages, resorts and hotels have been built on the slopes of Ba Na Mountain and King Mountain since the beginning of the 20th century. Even though the wars have destroyed a great part of these constructions, they have been restored recently to their former glories.

With its wild beauty endowed by the Nature, Ba Na Mountain welcomes thousands of visitors from everywhere in the world annually. It promises to attract more tourists in Vietnam, contributing to the tourism development of Danang city next time.
