2. How to travel to Ta Xua Mount ?

Ta Xua has not been developed in tourism officially so that you can only travel by motorbike. You can take a coach car to move from Hanoi to Yen Bai, then hire a motorbike to the destination. The road to Ta Xua is challenging but worth visiting with the endless green color surrounding. Together with the mountainous landscape, white clouds make the attraction more charming and majestic.

3. What to see in Ta Xua Mount ?

From Ta Xua mount peak, you are surrounded in the cloud valleys with mountains surrounding. However, it is not windy so that you can move freely and have nice check-in photos with your friends and family. You even can see villages of local ethnic minorities in the far distance. The picture of Yen Bai province Vietnam will certainly satisfy your eyes for the first time seeing.

The road is not too challenging but winding and crooked

A spot that you should not miss on the Ta Xua tour is "the back of the dragon" in Hang Dong Commune, the road connects three highest peaks of Ta Xua. At the height of 2500 meters above the water level, you look like walking on the air. It is challenging you as a trekking tour on the highest mountain in the world. Although it is about one meter long, walking with two deep canyons on the two sides is an experience that is hard to forget for offroad-lovers.

4. Where to stay in Ta Xua ?

Ta Xua is still a commune in poor conditions in the mountainous area of Northern Vietnam. Only young people come to the place to discover the majestic beauty on Ta Xua mount. Therefore, tourism services have not been invested. Travelers can have camping with your groups or seek help from the locals to stay overnight.

There are a lot of small food stores in the area to taste some special flavors such as local honey, dried buffalo market, sausages, black sticky rice cake, Luc Yen banana cake, rice in bamboos,...
