Adrenaline Junkies Defy Death on Vietnam’s Vertical Cliffs

A group of intrepid young adventurers have summited Hon Chuong Mountain in Binh Dinh Province, Vietnam. These brave souls took on the challenge of scaling a vertical rock face, using only a rope as their aid. Their feat of courage and strength is an inspiring tale of human endurance.


A Facebook account, H.N.B., shared a series of photos and videos on Saturday, showcasing a group of daredevils testing their rope-climbing skills at Hon Chuong Mountain in Cat Tai Commune, Phu Cat District. The post, shared in the Facebook group ‘Binh Dinh Thong Tin,’ quickly gained attention for the climbers’ bold and unprotected ascent.

The images and videos sparked concern among social media users, as the climbers were seen scaling the mountain without any safety gear. The peak, dozens of meters above sea level, presented a dangerous and life-threatening challenge.

The climbers, dressed in casual clothing and without harnesses, successfully reached the summit. Nguyen Ba Quang, chairman of the Cat Tai Commune People’s Committee, expressed concern after watching a video of the ascent, calling it a “dangerous challenge.” The commune plans to warn the group about the risks to deter future attempts.

While Hon Chuong Mountain and the Cham Tower on its peak are open to tourists, solo climbing is strictly prohibited. Nguyen Van Hung, chairman of the Phu Cat District administration, emphasized that this reckless behavior is not condoned and that the group’s actions were a one-time occurrence, aside from authorized researchers and surveyors.

Pham Anh Tuan, chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, assured that the province would address the situation promptly. He stated that such risky activities not only endanger the climbers but also tarnish the province’s reputation.

Hon Chuong Mountain, home to the Cham Tower, stands at 727 meters above sea level and is located approximately 50 kilometers from Quy Nhon City, the capital of Binh Dinh Province, according to researcher Nguyen Thanh Quang’s book, ‘Hoai Nhon, Qui Nhon, Qui Ninh, Binh Dinh – Land and People.’
