Trekking to Chua Chan Mountain

HCMC – Chua Chan Mountain, also known as Gia Lao Mountain, is a not-to-be-missed destination for people who love mountain climbing and trekking. The peak of the mountain is 837 meters above sea level.

It takes around three hours to travel by motorbike from HCMC to the mountain in Xuan Loc District, Dong Nai Province.

There are two ways to climb the mountain, one with the staircase and the other more challenging for those who love to explore nature.

Choosing the more challenging trail, I had to conquer dangerous and sheer rocks but was really impressed by the amazing landscapes including thick forests and marvelous waterfalls, and especially mountain goats with incredible cliff-climbing skills.

At the foot of the mountain, there are farms of cashew trees and some other perennial crops.

After conquering the mountain, I and my friends camped overnight on a site atop the mountain, prepared our own food and enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere.
