Bach Ma National Park Vietnam Information
Bach Ma National Park is located in central Vietnam (less than an hours drive from Hue city) and around 680 km from the country's capital Hanoi. The national park covers an area of 22,031 ha and was created in 1991 to protect the centre of the last corridor of forest stretching from the East Sea to the border with Lao PDR.
With steep mountains and dense forests this area is home to a wide variety of animals and plants. At the base of the mountains there is tropical monsoon forest, above 900 m the forest is sub-tropical. There are species from both the northern and southern areas of the country and Bach Ma is recognised as one of the biodiversity centres of Indochina.
The highest point in the park, Bach Ma mountain, is 1450 m above sea level and only 18 km away from the coast. Visitors have been coming to Bach Ma since the 1930s, when the French Colonials built a hill resort here to escape the hot and humid plains during the summer months. The National Park has restored some of the villas built at that time, and is upgrading the services they offer.
The rich flora and fauna also attract many tourists. Bach Ma National Park is home to 233 species of birds and 55 species of mammals, as well as extensive vegetation of more than 500 species. Thus, the park does not only offer beautiful landscapes, but it also allows for scientific research.
