About Bac Son Valley
Bac Son is a rural district of Lạng Sơn Province in the Northeast region of Vietnam and it is situated 160 km northeast of Hanoi.
One of the interesting aspects about this valley is its incredibly high mountains which are about 500-1200 meters high. These mountains, together with the valley’s paddy fields, create a great scenic landscape that you can only see its best after climbing to the peak of a mountain which is located just a few minutes from the town.
The valley’s pathways leads you to the paddy fields where you’ll get a chance to see the beautiful river that runs crossing the rice fields. Besides the valley itself, Bac Son district’s villages possess a beauty of their own.
The district is inhabited by the Tay ethnic people and their traditional stilt houses. Some of the overnight bac son tours will be the best for both the scenery and learning the local life of the hill tribe.
If you wish to see the entire view of the valley, you would need to hike up to the telephone station which was built on the top of a high mountain. From here, you are absolutely amazed by the stunning 360-degree scenery of mountains, villages, rivers and farms. It can be tiring to climb the mountains, but the effort is very much worth it.
