Sheltering diverse terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems with over 1,800 living spieces flora and fauna (many of them are endemic and recorded to be rare and endangered), Ba Be National Park was registered as an Asian Heritage Park in 2004, mostly known for Ba Be Lake – the largest natural fresh water lake in Vietnam praised as ‘the jade of the northern corner’. Through the ups and downs of natural processes over millions of years, Ba Be – with an enigmatic cave system, mystical waterfalls, calm lakes, all leaning against a backdrop of rippling mountains, still manages to remain in all its primitive wilderness and aesthetic characteristics. But they are not everything Ba Be has to offer, its kaleidoscope of cultures and delectable delights are also what win people’s heart. Our 3-day North Vietnam holidays navigating this masterpiece of nature allow you to rid yourself of mundane concerns and vexations, guaranteeing absolute peaceful bliss and total rejuvenation of the body and mind.
