Bach Ma National Park Birds Watching Tour 3Days
Bach Ma National Park is situated towards the southern end of the Annamite mountains. The national park lies on a high mountain ridge that runs west-east from the Laotian border to the East Sea at the Hai Van pass. This ridge interrupts the coastal plain of Vietnam, and, therefore, forms a biogeographic boundary between the faunas and floras of northern and southern Vietnam. This ridge also affects the local climate at the national park, which is probably the wettest place in Vietnam: the mean annual rainfall at the summit of Mount Bach Ma is 7,977 mm. The geology of the national park is dominated by granite, with some overlying areas of sandstone, schist and gneiss. The topography is generally steep and rugged, formed by heavy dissection of the substrate by surface water. The national park is dominated by a west-east ridge with several peaks above 1,000 m, the highest of which is Mount Bach Ma at 1,448 m. The lower slopes and hills are less steep, and are bordered by a narrow alluvial plain. There are many springs on the lower slopes and foothills of the national park. Generally, the north of national park is drained by the Truoi river, which flows north in to the lagoon area of the coast just below Hue city. The south of the national park is drained by tributaries of the Ta Trach river, which leaves the park heading westwards. To the east of the national park, natural sand bars have created large lagoons such as Cau Hai and Lang Co.
Transfer to the Airport to catch the early morning flight to Hue in the centre of Vietnam. On arrival at Hue follow the coast for 45 km south down Highway One before turning inland on the road that leads to Bach Ma National Park, 20 km away. The road from the park entrance to the park guesthouse near the summit is very scenic with sweeping vistas of undisturbed rainforest and the coastal plain. The park accommodation is in renovated colonial villas and the ruins of once grand holiday homes and hotels are scattered along the trails from this point up to the summit. There are many good trails for birders and for non-birders alike with several waterfalls and small lakes. Overnight at Bach Ma.
Bach Ma National Park is a very well-run operation and knowledgeable park guides can be hired if required. Over 330 species of bird have been recorded at Bach Ma and specialities include the endemic Annam Partridge, the Crested Argus, Coral-billed Ground-Cuckoo, Blyth ‘s Kingfisher and the Ratchet-tailed Treepie. Overnight at Bach Ma.
A final morning exploring the forest trails before leaving for Hue Airport to catch the early afternoon flight north to Ho Chi Minh City/Ha Noi. On arrival in Ho Chi Minh cit/Ha Noi transfer to your hotel. End of tour.
