VietnamSurprise – Ma Thien Lanh Valley located in Thanh Tan Commune in Tay Ninh Province is formed by three mountains, Ba Den, Heo and Phung. This valley is recommended as an ideal weekend getaway with hundreds of hectares of primeval forests and many stunning streams.
Currently, there is a three-kilometer-asphalted path from National Road No. 785 to the peak of the mountain, but to reach Ma Thien Lanh is not easy at all as the way down to the valley is still steep, tortuous and boasts many snakes.
Just a two hour motorbike ride from Ho Chi Minh city, Ma Thien Lanh now is one of the top destinations for excursionists who love the primitive life and adventure. From the foot of the mountain which has a few local households, travelers need to walk for about one kilometer under the shade of ancient trees to reach the top.
The winding section in the valley with choirs of birds and forest species must amaze tourists. The highlighted site of the valley is Ong Ho cave which is a very deep cave tucked on Heo Mountain’s foot.
After the long journey through dense forest layers, tourists will be rewarded by a cool and fresh atmosphere as well as splendid sceneries from streams to mountain creeks. Flora and fauna diversity is also an attraction of this mysterious land.
The climate is cool all year round and is also a good retreat for holiday goers to flee the Ho Chi Minh city heat and dust.
