The background of history


In 1932, the colonial government of Hue, Vietnam, commissioned French engineer Girard to build a hill station at the peak of Bach Ma.


To accommodate visitors and save them the 19-kilometer journey to the next major town, a post office, a market, and a hospital were set up.


In 1937, there were already 139 vacation villas there, making it known as the "Dalat of Central Vietnam." This region was the site of fierce fighting during the early years of the Vietnam War, in the 1950s.




After France's independence, residents rapidly forgot about Bach Ma and left the abandoned houses. Little has changed in the park since the early twentieth century, and among the verdant trees you can still find a small collection of French colonial residences that have been transformed into charming guesthouses.

The Third Myth of Bach Ma Mountain




Bach Ma translates to "White Horse," a reference to the ethereal white mist that often blankets the peak of the mountain. The gods, according to myth, would ride their steeds up to this summit and play chess.


While the horses were out having fun, they started hunting for pasture. Because the horse became so preoccupied with eating grass, the gods were delayed in ascending to heaven.


The horses spent the entire year roaming the mountains, morphing into clouds that looked like white horses. Because of this, Bach Ma was given as a name.

Do Quyen waterfall gets its name from the profusion of March-blooming rhododendrons in the area. Flowers are too beautiful to be expressed in words; instead, they should be seen in person.

Named for the natural water slide created by the falls' water over a big rock in the falls' center, "slide waterfall" describes the natural phenomenon best. Waterslides are made smoother by the persistent, thin coating of moss that clings to rocks.
