Exploring Vietnam's fourth highest mountain peak

The top of Bach Moc Luong Tu in Lao Cai Province, Vietnam, is a popular spot for tourists to watch the sunset and take pictures of floating clouds.

Mt Bạch Mộc Lương Tử, at an altitude of 3,046 metres, is Việt Nam's fourth highest mount, behind Fansipan, Putaleng, and Pusilung. The mountain, named after the ethnic minority community at its foot, is located between the northern provinces of Lai Châu and Lào Cai.

Even though it is not the highest peak in the region, the mountain is widely regarded by many professional climbers as having the most stunning views of all.

It takes approximately 10 kilometres of hiking up steep, treacherous hills before travellers reach the peak of Mt Bạch Mộc Lương Tử.
