Pu Luong Overview

Travelling to Pu Luong on the tours of Vietnam is perfect for the nature lovers wishing to escape the bustle of city life and see imposing mountain ranges, intact rivers and waterfalls, poetic villages, and immense valleys of beautiful terraced rice fields. The Pu Luong region gives the perfect opportunity to get to know authentic Vietnam with its remote region and friendly and kind-hearted local ethnic-minority Muong and Thai that have their own interesting cultures and lifestyles.

The travel distance from Hanoi to Pu Luong is in the region of 150 km which makes a journey time of just over 4 hours by private car hire.

This is the time to fully appreciate the multi-layer terraced fields and lush-green landscape that will certainly give the breathtaking photographic moments.

Pu Luong’s mountains are covered with tropical rainforest, while the valley is a series of cultivated rice terraces.

Listen to the waterwheels and forest sounds, wave at farmers and grazing water buffalo, and snap pictures of the greenery and wildlife. Simply being in Pu Luong Nature Reserve is a breath of fresh air.

Trekking is the best way to soak up the natural splendour of Pu Luong. Access to maps and marked trails are limited throughout the park, so hiring a local guide will save you time and help you plot the perfect route. You may like to hike to the summit of Mt. Pu Luong, or do a multi-day trek through the entire reserve. Either way, you’re in a for an exhilarating experience.
