NB 09: Cuc Phuong - Van Long Nature Reserve for 1 day

Cuc Phuong National Park is one of Vietnam’s most important protected areas. Though wildlife has suffered a precipitous in Vietnam in recent decades, the park’s 222 square Km of primary tropical forest remains home to an amazing variety of animal and plant life: 307 species of birds, 133 species mammal, 122 species of reptile, 2000 plant species and counting.


Excellent hiking opportunities abound in the park and we will walk to see Endangered Primate Rescue center where some native animals – deer, monkeys, civets, gibbons & langurs and another short trail leads to a steep stairway up to the archeologically significant cave of Prehistoric man, after that walk to the massive 1000 year-old “Big Tree” (Tetrameles Nudiflora).


Van Long Nature Reserve is more glorious limestone pinnacles, this tranquil reserve comprises a reedy wetland that`s popular with bird-watchers. Among the bird species that have been spotted here are the rare black-faced spoobill, cotton pygmy goose and white-browed crake. Van Long is also one of the last wild refuges of the endangered Delacour`s langur, partly because the wetlands keep predators and poachers at bay.

Private tour for private group is very suitable for a couple, small group or a family with children.
