Surf the clouds on Bach Moc Luong Tu mountain peak
Trekkers can enjoy a spectacular sunset on Muoi Mountain
Located in Lao Cai Province, Bach Moc Luong Tu is the country’s fourth highest peak and is one of the most popular locations for trekking lovers who are keen to enjoy a spectacular sunset alongside magnificent clouds.
Ky Quan San Mountain is situated at an altitude of 3,046 metres above sea level.
The mountain, known locally as Ky Quan San after the ethnic village located at its base, sits between the northwestern provinces of Lai Chau and Lao Cai.
The ideal time for tourists to visit the area and hunt clouds is between November and February.
Bach Moc Luong Tu initially opened to trekkers back in 2012. Although it lies some way off the beaten track, the peak represents both an inviting and thrilling target that inspires passionate trekkers.
At a height of 2,000 metres, successfully trekkers can enjoy a breathtaking view of the surrounding scenery from Muoi Mountain.
Muoi Mountain can be considered the most beautiful spot in which to catch a glimpse of the sunset and sunrise from when making the journey to Bach Moc Luong Tu.
Climbers are able to hire porters, who are from the Dao ethnic minority group, who also take care of meals during the trek.
Most notably, there are two routes leading to the top of the mountain, one from Sang Ma Sao Commune in Bat Xat District of Lao Cai Province, whilst the other is in Lai Chau Province and stars from Den Sung Village in Sin Sui Ho Commune of Phong Tho District.
Guests can witness an epic view of the sunrise from the Ky Quan San mountain peak.
