Ky Quan San, the fourth highest mountain in Vietnam at 3,046 meters above sea level, beckons nature enthusiasts with its awe-inspiring natural beauty. To ascend this peak successfully, good health and guidance from the local Mong ethnic people are crucial, as the journey entails three days and two nights of trekking.

As backpackers embark on this trek, they are treated to a plethora of picturesque landscapes. From terraced fields that wind around the small village at the mountain’s foot to the exotic and vibrant flowers that bloom in the forest, the scenery only becomes more enchanting as they ascend. The journey feels like a progression through a giant bonsai forest, followed by a bamboo jungle, and ultimately culminating in the breathtaking moss forest.

Upon reaching the summit, trekkers are rewarded with a panoramic view that encompasses the Red River and the Ky Quan San mountain range that spans the border of Vietnam and China.
