Ba Be National Park | About Us

Ba Be National Park is among Vietnam’s first National Parks, designated as a protected area in 1992 by the Vietnamese government and since recognized by the ASEAN Heritage Parks Organization. With a tropical climate and a unique, diverse range of flora and fauna and wealth of cave systems and limestone mountains, Ba Be National Park occupies a special place for travellers in Southeast Asia.

The lake itself is also quite unique, for while most lakes rest at the bottom of deep valleys, this one is located right on the top of a mountain, and is fed by three separate rivers that flow down from the highest peak. It reaches 35 meters of depth at its deepest, and at the bottom there is 5 to 10 meters of clay, ensuring that the lake never dries out. Because of its location deep in the forest, it also keeps the area green and verdant all year round.

The park is also home to a wide range of ethnic minorities, as many as 6 distinct ones, namely the Tay, Muong, Zhao, Viet Kinh, and the Black and Flower H’mong.

This website is managed by Mr Linh’s Adventures Travel Company, which employs local people living in the area and family businesses. Mr Linh’s Adventures considers it our duty to protect and preserve the traditional culture and architecture of the area, as well as give back to the community by training and employing locals in tourism. We also work closely with the Vietnamese government to ensure environmentally friendly and sustainable practices in all aspects of the park. We also manage an office and support team in Hanoi to assist travellers to the Park, including a shuttle service and pre-made group tours.
