A Full Day Trip to Cuc Phuong National Park
Pick up from your hotel at 08.00, a 3,5 hours road trip through picturesque countryside and agricultural land will take you Cuc Phuong. Arriving in Cuc Phuong National Park's Headquarter, you will visit the renowned Endangered Primate Rescue Centre to see some of the rarest apes and monkeys in the world and learn about the conservation efforts to save them.
After lunch at the Park's canteen, you’ll drive into the core zone for a 7km hike to learn about the variety of fauna and flora of the forest in fresh atmosphere. Visit Cho trees - the huge ones would take ten arms length in circumference. In the afternoon, you will drive back to Hanoi, arriving in the late afternoon..
Note: The best time to visit Cuc Phuong is from October to May. Avoid the summer as the parks biodiversity includes a large contingent of leeches that get hungry in hot humid weather. April to May sees clouds of millions of butterflies spiraling in pockets of sunshine.
