Ma Thien Lanh valley possesses a pristine natural landscape, majestic mountains, lush green forests, and a fresh air, Petro Times reported.

The fanciful clouds hovering over the mountain ranges create a paradisiacal beauty. This is the reason why it is dubbed as "Da Lat of the Southeast".

Just over a two-hour drive from Ho Chi Minh City, Ma Thien Lanh Valley has long been a magnetic destination for many backpackers.

The road leading to Ma Thien Lanh meanders through the magnificent passes bringing the feeling of getting lost in the Northwestern region. The valley retains untouched beauty since it has not been exploited by tourism.

The “must-visit” place at Ma Thien Lanh Valley is the crystal-clear stream located at the bottom of the valley. The best time to travel the place is the spring when trees sprout and flowers fully bloom creating a picturesque beauty.

Tourists can traverse a trail amid the dense forest to reach Ong Ho Cave situated to the west of Heo Mountain. Conquering Ong Ho Cave is truly an unforgettable experience as tourists must ascend the craggy mountains and slippery boulders.

Ma Thien Lanh stone lake is also the place that cannot be missed when coming here. It is also known as May Nui Lake (Cloud and Mountain Lake) because every morning, the whole area is shrouded by thick mist and sea of clouds. The lake offers many perfect “check-in” corners to take photographs.

In addition, do not miss the opportunity to conquer the highest mountain in the Southern Delta - Ba Den Mountain.

To reach Ma Thien Lanh Peak, from Bai Nha Wharf, travelers go further 1km towards Bai Bang, then taking a short walk, one will see the path on the left with steps leading up to the mountain.

The beginning road is accessible since it is made of concrete. The road is surrounded by fields where farmers cultivate many kinds of fruits such as bananas, mangoes as well as primeval forests.

Crossing Phat Lo Thien Pagoda (or Pho Tinh Pagoda), the path turns into rougher as it is enveloped by dense forests along with the sounds of wild animals offering thrills to visitors.

Just follow the winding path and tourists will reach the stone cave. According to the locals, the cave is sometimes home to recluses. Some of their items like beds, tables, chairs, bookshelves made of rattan are still found in the cave.

Stepping on the peak of Ma Thien Lanh, tourists will have the chance to capture in their eyes the immense space of mountains, forests, and blue sea.

San Tien is regarded as an ideal “check-in” point on Ma Thien Lanh Peak. However, the cliff is moss-covered and slippery, tourists need to be cautious.
