Hike or bike along the main paved road for a chance to run into a family of doucs watching passers-by from the treetops. Observe these colorful acrobats, with white tails and golden faces, screaming and jumping from branch to branch. Notice the rope bridges suspended between trees, made specifically for the monkeys. Other residents of the mountain include long-tailed macaques, rhesus macaques, and pygmy slow lorises.

  • In Vietnam, it is usual that the taxi or anyone else know the attraction places in just about anything. That's what happened today. Agim drove to the answer I gave in the direction, then got help from the Japanese and, finally, by chance, a place was found. But it was worth it! The monkeys were montaperhettä free in the wild.

  • A must visit heavy with tourist but you can find a spot were you can reflect and have a moment. The bonsai trees are amazing and the buhda of compasion is beautiful.
  • Don't be put off by the very steep incline, it is certainly worth it, believe me. The scenery from the top is jaw dropping and the clouds breeze past you to keep you cool.
  • Great view from the top of mountain.
  • Top cloud views
  • 郊區,想去看風景一定要去這裡!最好租電單車遊覽,很舒服又美麗!
