Trekking Ba Den Mountain in Tay Ninh has a dreamy view and beautiful sightseeing

Ba Den Mountain, 986 m high, is the highest and most difficult mountain to conquer in the South. This is also considered a favorite place for young people who love to move and like to challenge themselves. Many people think that climbing is only for those who are healthy and must have a son in the group. However, with only 300,000 VND, our group, all women, successfully conquered Ba Den to enjoy nature like carefree children, free and free in the sky.

Trekking Ba Den Mountain in Tay Ninh has a dreamy view and beautiful sightseeing

Traveler hearts wait for the best moments during the climbing journey.

There are 4 directions to the top: Temple road (shortest, but steepest, many rocks difficult to pass),Power poles (easiest and most popular road)Ma Thien Lanh Street (difficult and long)White Rock slope (the hardest to conquer, only suitable for those with good health).

Because our group is completely female, the easy way to climb is the electric pole. And to start a “trip” trip to Ba Den, what do you need to prepare and understand?1. Prepare

Food and drink: Cup noodles, sausages, sandwiches, cucumbers, chocolates, rice cakes, candies, cotton balls, fruit and effervescent C tablets.Fruits: Apples and tangerines are two common types, easy to carry as well as preserve (this is for assigning to buy and share).Drinking water: 1 liter for going up, 0.5 liter for daily activities, 0.5 liter for going down. A practical experience is to mix lime or lemon with sugar and honey, remember to add a little salt to create electrolytes to compensate for loss. efficient water. If only drinking pure water will be water poisoning causing dehydration and fatigue. Diluted honey can also be used (used by road cyclists). Can be purchased at the foot of the mountain. Especially do not bring coconut water.

2 tents (specialized tent for 4 people)

In the cold evening, sitting on the fire is the most wonderful thing.

Note: Each member of the delegation must carry at least 7 kg – 10 kg including personal items, drinking water, food and tents.

Sky at 4:45 am.

Around 5:30, the sun turned red in the sky, casting pink rays on the bed of Dau Tieng lake, making the picture of the countryside full of life. Definitely have to watch the sunrise, because if you climb Ba Den mountain without seeing that beautiful scene, you have not set foot anywhere.

At 5:30 the sun was red in the sky.7:00: Have breakfast, drink coffee and camp. You should clean up the garbage and bring it down! Don’t leave anything you bring up.

This cup of coffee is a balance between sweet and bitter, but leans more towards the bitter part and is more specifically brewed on top.

Great breakfast in the mountains.

Journeying down the mountain, our group decided to follow the temple road. The road is extremely steep, with large rocks, sometimes crawling, crawling, swinging here and there.7:30: Departure down the mountain

The group check-in at the top.13:00: We arrived at the foot of the mountain and were exhausted.

After going down the mountain, you should rest a bit and have lunch and then return to Saigon. When you return, you still follow the same route and schedule as when you went. Just drive slowly, don’t be in a hurry. Remember to eat when hungry, when tired to rest.17:00: We arrived safely in Saigon

I still remember that wonderful evening by the fire at the top of the mountain that day. .4.
