About 50 km from the center of Hanoi city, Vien Nam peak in Quang Tien commune, Tan Yen district, Hoa Binh is located at an altitude of more than 1,000 m above sea level, with a panoramic view of Hoa Binh city and the surrounding mountains. 
It is more relaxed here than in the city, chilly in the evening. Besides the experience of watching the sunset and sunrise, if you are lucky, you can catch a sea of clouds. The area is completely unspoiled, so there are no camping services. Visitors should actively prepare all necessary items before the trip.
The distance from the foot of the mountain to the top is about 10 km. The road is a narrow, steep slope with many rocks and luxuriant trees because few people pass by. Suitable means of transportation are motorbikes and cars with high ground clearance; the driver must be steady.
