2 Days Trek in National Park
Two-Day Trek in Mountain Bidoup National Park
Trekking into the newest National Park in Vietnam (Bidoup Nui Ba) and up to the summit of the highest mountain in southern Vietnam: Mount Bidoup (2,287 meters). The fantastic two-day trek takes you to the north into a previously inaccessible area that has only recently opened up and into a rainforest thick with orchids, troops of gibbon monkeys, and other natural wonders.
We start with a 45 minutes vehicle transfer from Dalat, up towards the Northeast and into the National Park. We turn off onto a rough dirt road and drive for another 10 minutes or so. From here we walk into the forest ranger station another 4 km.
We cross a river on a wooden platform with barrels for floats and then start our trek upwards to the summit of the mountain. The trail climbs gradually but consistently up from 1,300 meters. The first day of trekking is entirely in the pine forest.
Once we start to gain some elevation, there are stunning views of the surrounding hills and villages.
After lunch, we continue climbing up to our campsite for the night. Right at the fringe of the jungle, we will be trekking into the next day (1,900 meters). We set up camp, relaxed, and maybe take a stroll into the jungle area and then start cooking dinner.
On the second day, the trail changes considerably and moves from pine forest to jungle. The climb is still gradual but the trail wanders more than it did on the first day. You can see many orchids all along the trail and maybe you can see some blossoms.
After one or two hours we arrive at the summit of Mount Bidoup (2,287 meters).
From here the trail drops down steeply, then flattens out. We wander over a second peak on the mountain. After that, we drop down again and arrive at the oldest tree. So you will see throughout the trip (a 1,300-year-old monster). We slowly make our way down the mountain and continue to enjoy the scenery.
