  • The hike itself is good and worth the recommended 2hours to be spent on it. However the park seems like it once was an attraction that the government or someone put money into but since then they have...  more »

  • Amazing view from the top. The touristic road is very good- most of the time you walk on rocks. Bring good shoes, it's not a walk with flip-flops!
  • Sorted place. The walls are nice but the place is run down. Take a hike but not the best.
  • Great place, not so many people and stunning views from the top. Real Jungle experience.
  • Natural park, that' s so beautiful. Should go when visit Cat Ba island.
  • Awesome place for cycling, trekking and climbing - did all of that as part of Vega Travel 3day Halong Bay tour and loved it.
