President Tran Dai Quang visits K9-Da Chong historic site
President Tran Dai Quang on April 10th offered incense to late President Ho Chi Minh and planted a tree at the K9-Da Chong historic relic site in Hanoi’s outlying Ba Vi district.
In 1957, President Ho Chi Minh decided to choose K9-Da Chong, about 70 km from downtown Hanoi to the west on the Ba Vi mountain range, as a secret base for the Party Central Committee to work during the resistant war against the US.

From 1960 to 1969, President Ho Chi Minh worked and received many international leaders here.
Many important decisions and instructions for the cause of national liberation and reunification were issued by President Ho Chi Minh and the Party Central Committee at the site.
After President Ho Chi Minh passed away in 1969, the place was used to preserve his body until 1975.
