I completed a short hike to Đỉnh Ngự Lâm, a good workout with a lot of uphill. The views were great. Trung Trang Cave was also amazing, a very large and intricate cave system.

Breathtaking haven!
Thực vật đa dạng, không khí dễ chịu, đường nhựa xuyên rừng rất đẹp. Cung trekking ngắn vừa phải với mọi người.
The hike to the peak was the main attraction here. It was a short one with some steep sections. The path is well marked, but it’s advisable to take a photo of the map at the entry. Overall the views at the top are amazing and make the trek worth it.

Nice peaceful long trek. Be prepared for uneven climbs, each way taking around 1hr
A lovely national park with parking directly outside. Cost is 80,000vnd per person and includes entrance to the park and to Trung Trang Cave! The hike itself up to the viewpoint is reasonable, not bad for people of lower fitness levels. The top gets trickier with more intense and steep climbing over rocks but still manageable.

National park tickets comes with the Trang Trung Cave tickets at 80K. Beware that there is parking of 10K. This national park is good if you love to do longer walks/ hikes. Have good views, and didn’t manage to do it as I went too late (after 3pm) . Be there earlier so you can enjoy all attractions.

Strenuous climb to the top but was great at the top
Hòn đảo rất đẹp mọi người nên đến 1 lần. Đường đi trên đảo rất thoáng và đẹp uốn quanh co theo triền núi. Mình đi vào ngày thời tiết mát thật là cảm giác.

A MUST do in Cat ba. The treck is not long but quite hard (rocks, small climb, sliding) but beautiful view !
Bạn không thể bỏ qua địa điểm này khi đến đảo Cát Bà nhé. Mình đã không có đủ thời gian để đi hết vì thời gian không cho phép. Sẽ quay lại vào một lần khác.

Stunning views, worth the entrance fee. Signs are a bit unclear since none of the are in English but the route to the viewing point is pretty self explanatory.
Sehr schöner Spaziergang bzw. kleine Wanderung. Haben uns aus Zeitgründen für den Weg zum Viewpoint entschieden, dank Höhenunterschied doch etwas fordernd aber im Wald immer angenehm kühl. Die Aussicht könnte schöner nicht sein. Sehr zu empfehlen.
Po kupnie biletów i wejściu na obiekt, pomyślałam "miernota" :-) ale się rozkręciło i to bardzo pozytywnie
