Embarking on a 2-day, 2-night journey to conquer daring challenges, overcoming steep rocky slopes, and navigating through sharp cliffs, we engage in the thrilling activity of abseiling from the summit of the majestic Eye of God Mountain, suspended at a height of over 500 meters. We venture into the pristine and mysterious Lan Ty Valley, with its breathtaking Lan Ty Lake, vast and enigmatic Snail Cave, ancient Huu Lien Forest, Khe Dau Waterfall, and Mo Ang Lake. This trip offers an immersive experience in the midst of nature, spending one-night camping in the forest and another night resting at a homestay with the local people.
The unique Huu Lien Forest is an attractive destination in Huu Lung District, Lang Son Province, boasting a pristine and wild beauty. This place features diverse and abundant terrain, with high mountain ranges, meandering rivers surrounding the valley, and vast flat grasslands stretching across the plains.
Hidden in the heart of the Huu Lien Forest, Lan Ty Lake is surrounded by year-round mist-covered mountain ranges. This place is completely secluded from the outside world, with its emerald green water shimmering throughout the year, resembling a precious jade gem.
