We will pick you up at your hotel for the 40 km drive to Yen Tu Mountain. The surrounding area is made up of a system of pagodas, shrines, towers and forests, all situated within this immense arched mountain range in northeastern Vietnam. Take the cable car to visit Hoa Yen Pagoda at the altitude of 534 meters. Here, you can see two 700-year-old frangipani trees. Then climb the steps to reach Dong Pagoda, perched atop the mountain’s peak, at an altitude of 1,068 meters.. The beauty of Yen Tu lies in how the majesty of its mountain ranges mingles with the ancient and solemn quietness of its pagodas, shrines and towers.. Once you reach the summit you can take in the beautiful panoramic view of Northern Vietnam. Enjoy a pure vegetarian lunch at a local restaurant nearby. In spring, Yen Tu attracts a huge number of tourists sightseeing and going on pilgrimages. There is also Yen Tu Festival, which takes place on the 10th day of the first lunar month lasting until the end of the third lunar month
