Many Vietnamese travellers choose to venture off the beaten path as they make adventurous trips to conquer Mount Pha Luong, Datanla Waterfall, or trek through Mui Doi (the East Pole of Vietnam) to enjoy spectacular the sunsets. Following are some of the most popular places for adventure tourists:
Pha Luong Mount in Tan Xuan commune, Chieng Xuan district is about 40km away from Moc Chau, Son La province. At an altitude of over 2,000 metres above sea level, only brave people can conquer the challenging journey with many steep climbs and gloomy forests.
Tay Con Linh Mountain in Ha Giang province is the highest peak in the north-eastern region and is one of the most intrepid destinations for backpackers due to its dangerous terrain of rocky climbs and thick forests.
Da Lat’s Datanla Waterfall in the central highlands province of Lam Dong attracts tourists with its many exciting sport games such as rope swings and slides.
Mui Doi (the East Pole of Vietnam) is located on Hon Gom Island in Van Phong bay of Van Thanh commune, Van Ninh district in Khanh Hoa province. Visitors must overcome an arduous 4km journey across scorching sand dunes and through dense forests to reach their destination.
