VN129- Bach Ma National Park Discovery

    2 days

Bach Ma National Park (BMNP)

Bach Ma National Park (BMNP) is situated in the narrow central region of Vietnam, just north of the Hai Van Pass where the Annamite Mountain Range meets the South China Sea. In 1991 Bach Ma was officially classified as a national park with 22,031 ha at its core and a buffer zone of 21,300 ha. Forming a green corridor from the Annamite Mountains to Vietnam’s coastal plain, Bach Ma National Park is the only surviving area of forest extending from the South China Sea to the Laos border. Following the discovery of Bach Ma in 1932 a road was built to the summit and the area just below was developed into a hill station. By the end of the 1930s there were 139 villas, a hotel and a general store and the area was a popular weekend getaway for members of the French colonial administration.
