Phú Thọ is a province in northern Vietnam. Its capital is Việt Trì, which is 80km from Hanoi and 50km from Nội Bài International Airport. The province covers an area of 3528.1 square kilometres and, as of 2008, it had a population of 1,364,700.The history of Phú Thọ is linked to the 18 dynasties of Hùng kings who were credited with building the nation of Văn Lang. Because of its strategic location, the province is known as the "West Gate of Hanoi". It is located at the confluence of two large rivers: the Red River and the Da River, and in a transitional area between the Red River Delta the country's northern mountainous provinces. The Xuân Sơn National Park, established in February 2002, is located in the province about 80km from Việt Trì. The park covers an area of 15048ha, with over 11000ha of natural forest and 1396ha of limestone-mountain forests.
