What to do?
First place to visit at Cuc Phuong National Park is the Visitor’s Center, where we can find general information about Cuc Phuong. Dozens of trails cut through the forest make different trekking type from simple to strenuous one. Then we also choose the route to the Cave of Prehistoric Man, the Botanical Garden, the Endangered Primate Rescue Center or homestay with Muong minority people.
A trip to nearby Van Long is possible to combine.
When to go?
The best time to visit the Park is in the dry months from October to March. From April to June it becomes increasingly hot and wet; from July to September, the rains arrive and bring lots of leeches.
The trails in the park can be slippery, especially after rains. Make sure to bring sturdy shoes, raincoats, torch, antiseptic and some bandages. With environment around, please dispose of trash properly, “left nothing except your foot steps”.
If staying at Muong village, please be aware that accommodation is in basic condition. Mattresses and mosquito nets are provided.
