Full Day Trekking and cycling in Cat Ba National Park

Cat Ba Biosphere Reserve covers approximately half of the land area of Cat Ba Island, and also includes a large area of marine ecosystems. In fact, it is the first protected area in Vietnam that comprises of a marine and a terrestrial component. This, combined with the vast number of threatened indigenous species and rich natural diversity, makes Cat Ba Biosphere Reserve of international importance. One of the most renowned residents of the reserve is the elusive Cat Ba Langur. A few years ago there were only 50 adults in the population of this endangered primate, which lives nowhere else on the planet. A super-human effort from the Cat Ba Langur Conservation Project means that the numbers of Langurs are now slowly increasing (up to 65 adults at last count), but they still need every bit of protection they can get.
The National Park itself is beautifully peaceful; a haven of lofty trees and gently rustling undergrowth, dripping down precipitous limestone crags like a freezeframe of a rich, green waterfall. A misty day may restrict the view somewhat, but it adds exponentially to the magical, mysterious atmosphere inside the verdant forests.
Immerse yourself in the deepest, most remote depths of Cat Ba National Park with this tour. The four hour hike to Viet Hai Village will bring you the feeling of being in the middle of no where. Experience the wild animals and natural forest, as well as having interaction with local people in the remote traditional village.
