Based on the experience of many tourists, the best time to admire the scenery of Thang Hen Lake is at dawn when the sun has just risen. The first rays of sunlight penetrated the thin mist, illuminating the lake's surface like a beautiful giant mirror appearing in front of our eyes.

Right at the top of the mountain, there is a cave that is like an "eye" with a diameter of about 50 meters, wide enough for anyone to see from afar. Many young people liken this mountain to a small corner of Mongolia because of the vast green grasslands.
It can be said that God's Eye is one of the most unique mountains in Vietnam. Surrounding the mountain is a population of lower mountains, forests, and far away is a clear lake.
