Full description
Pick-up at your hotel and take a 40 km drive to the area of Yen Tu Mountain. The area is made up of a system of pagodas, shrines, towers, and forests… Situated within the immense arched mountain range of northeastern Vietnam, Yen Tu Mountain bears at its peak the Dong (Bronze) Pagoda, at an altitude of 1,068 meters above sea level. The beauty of Yen Tu consists in the majestic of its mountains mingling with the ancient and solemn quietness of its pagodas, shrines and towers. Visit to Hoa Yen Pagoda at the altitude of 534 meters via the cable car system recently put into operation. Here, you will see on this peak two 700-year-old frangipane trees. From there, you will continue walking up the steps to Dong Pagoda. Here, you will feel like you are standing on the clouds. From this summit in nice weather, you can admire the dramatic landscape of the Northeast of Vietnam. Enjoy a pure vegetarian lunch at a local restaurant nearby.   In spring, Yen Tu attracts a huge number of tourists going on pilgrimage and sightseeing. There is also Yen Tu Festival, which takes place on the 10th day of the first lunar month lasting until the end of the third lunar month.

Der Ausflug war super!!! Es ist zwar wirklich mega anstrengend und der Muskelkater, in den Waden, ist garantiert aber das ist die Mühe Wert. Unsere Führerin Hieu war mega lieb, hat uns viel erklärt und darauf geachtet das wir uns auch ausruhen konnten. Die Gechichte die man Stück für Stück erfahren darf und mit jeder Pagode auf dem Berg wächst ist sehr interessant und umfangreich. Es gibt beim Aufstieg mehrere Stationen wo man sich etwas zu trinken kaufen kann. Es mangelt auch nicht an Souvenirs oder kleineren Snacks. Am Fuße des Berges ist ein tolles Restaurant. Wir haben vegetarisch Mittag gegessen, Hieu hat uns alles erklärt und es war richtig lecker.
