The two-day trekking tour of Lung Cung Mountain departs from Nam Co Commune, Mu Cang Chai District, and is often led by a Mong ethnic tour guide who is very familiar with the local terrain. Mountaineers, who expect to visit the land of lush vegetation, may sometimes be caught in a tropical rain in the vast forest. As anticipated, the local climate and the route are big challenges for most of trekkers, but in return, they are treated by some unmatched natural scenes which can be found nowhere else. At the final destination, Lung Cung peak, rewards for successful mountaineers are spectacular views where mountain ranges are in harmony with seas of white clouds.

With an altitude of more than 2,900m, Lung Cung is in one of the most beautiful mountains in Vietnam. The top of the mountain is covered by clouds year-round, which tourists love to snap photos of.
Located in the northern province of Yen Bai, Ta Chi Nhu Mountain offers tourists who climb to the peak mesmerising views of clouds, along with a vast array of violet flowers.
